  • Description


    I live on one of the most beautiful island on the west coast of Canada. My house is nearest to the highest point of the island and there are fantastic hiking trails to the top of the mountain. From here you can easily go to Victoria, the capital of this province, for a day.

    I'm looking for someone to help with the gardens (preparing the soil, planting, weeding, etc.), taking care of chickens and walking my puppy, housecleaning and cooking as well as helping us renovate certain areas of our property.

  • Help


    At this moment I'm doing renovation and I ask for help with carpentry, gardening, firewood, cleaning, painting , housekeeping, cooking and various tasks on the farm.
    At home I also need help around the house and fruit picking in season. I have walnut, apple, pear, cherry, hazelnut and plum trees.
    I would like volunteers to offer help rather than having to be asked.

    I cannot accommodate special dietary requirements or other health issues sorry.
    The farm is 100% smoke free (yes all kinds)

    What else ...

    Salt Spring is the most popular location for visitors to the Gulf Islands. It is a friendly place and offers many things to see and do. There are several hiking trails. Hiking, walking, swimming, kayaking, bicycling and boating are very popular activities.

    You can come to the island from Vancouver by ferry to Long Harbor or Fulford Harbor and to Vesuvius Bay from Victoria Island. You can take a bus Ganges - Fulford Harbor to Dukes Road then walk for about 50 mins. People here are very friendly and someone could give you a lift to my place.
