  • Description


    A small hobby farm on Salt Spring Island on the West Coast of Canada. We are located centrally on the island, walking distance to Ganges town and to the ocean. We have gardens, fruit trees and several pets that need attending. We are starting a mobile Kayaking company that also needs support. Salt Spring Island is a unique community with it's famous market, studio gallery tours, ecstatic Dance Temple, breath taking scenery and very friendly people. We are a family of three with a background in Education. We love swimming, kayaking, dancing and working on the land. We have other family members living on the land. There are lots of opportunity for creativity, building, harvesting and learning.
