Hi! We live on a beautiful acreage with alpacas, chickens and dogs. We have 3 fun loving boys 12y, 14y, and 21y. We are in Cowichan Station (Duncan) BC. There are many places to explore in the area. The train tracks run past our property and there is no longer a train so it’s a great trail now. Bright Angel Park is a great swimming spot about a 15 minute walk.

We are a happy family with adventurous boys! They could show you the local swimming hole or how to pull them on their skateboards behind the tractor! Visiting with the dogs and alpacas is rewarding, and watching our free range chickens come and go.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We built a trail around our 6 acre property and we need to maintain it by trimming and spreading bark mulch. There is lots of gardening that could be done and some painting. Some of our property is forest and we need to clean up branches from fallen trees. No chainsaw work, just labour : )
