We are a vibrant family of four adults and four young adults aged 16-21 - two boys and two girls. We have dogs, cats and sheep are often on our property. We live in a 100 year old house on seven south facing acres in Metchosin BC, just 30 minutes out of Victoria. Gorgeous views and numerous beaches, including clothing optional, and parks surround the area. We operate a yoga studio/ retreat space and offer yoga classes as well as body work. With all the activities, we need some help from open minded, creative individuals who would like to assist in building (restoring an old cabin this year), gardening, painting, weeding, cooking or other skills that you would like to share. We welcome LGBT.

Help around the house
Whether you are interested in practicing english, exploring the wilderness of Vancouver Island, or developing cooking, gardening or construction skills, our house offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which to learn.
Volunteering will vary according to what needs to be done as well as skills being offered. This summer we are interested in restoring an old cabin onsite. Other projects on the list include: maintaining a veggie garden, pulling invasive weeds, garden maintenance and house sitting.
Accomodation available would vary according to what is happening on the property but we do have several rooms in the house which are available as well as lots of outdoor space for tenting if that is preferred
Public transit exisits but can be a challenge in this area. We are close to The Galloping Goose a walk/ bike path which takes you into town, 1.25 hrs by bike.
