  • Description


    Located in the Cranberry Valley farming community on Salt Spring Island, right by Mount Maxwell Provincial Park, 6 km to Ganges and around the corner from Salt Spring Centre of Yoga, our small permaculture farm is home to numerous plants and animals.

    Our 5 acre farm always has things to-do. Workers will help with gardening ,renovation projects and general maintenance on the property.

    We are very food focused and offer delicious, healthy meals to share with our guests.

    Our home is health focused so we don't allow smoking in our living/shared areas home but respect our guests choices in their own time and space.

    We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, plus chickens and ducks.

  • Accommodation


    Accommodation is in a private forest with furnished canvas tents on platforms, an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, accessory solar power and outdoor shower. The miner’s canvas tents (shared for a couple, private for singles) are more like very basic square yurts than tents. There is a central kitchen tent with propane stove, potable water and wood stove.
