    Imagine yourself being at a retreat on the magical floating crystal laden island that is rated as one of the #1 Places in the World to visit by NY TIMES MAGAZINE. You can be soaking up nature at its finest and still enjoy the culture of artists of all kinds. This special gem of an island is rated # 1 of the top 10 hubs for artists of all kinds in North America. You can enjoy the beautiful natural quiet property or go to town and enjoy splendid music and fun and all the island has to offer. With 10 thousand residences you will not be remote however you will feel like your in a world away from the hustle and bustle of mainland living. Yet, you will only be a 30 minute ferry ride away to British Columbia's capital on Vancouver Island. Welcome to our very special floating rock called Salt Spring island.
    The home of Canada's #1 rated farmers' market and so much more.

    You could be a part of the various projects here on a magical retreat with spectacular views of the Pacific. Trust you wildlife such as deer, adorable baby fawns, bald eagles, variety of other birds, rabbits, and other lovelies!
    Come, be a part of tending to the land and various projects at the retreat that has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor. *COME HELP IT MAKE IT HAPPEN AGAIN!

    Private Bedroom in a QUIET Large Home (( or if you like a beautiful big tent or your motorhome or campervan ))
    Yummy fresh food is bought for you to prepare yourself. -

    Trust you enjoy a quiet, peaceful piece of land we are close enough to get to all amenities such as cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, post office, library, movie theater, etc. Also, you are walking distance from the best beach and trails on the island! There are bicycles for your use and note that Salt Spring is hitchhiker friendly!

    +NOTE BEFORE COVID- It is quite a fun experience for everyone and many of the helpers find that hitching a ride is a fabulous and fun to meet other islanders :) Hitching is still happening though!

    When I walked onto this property four years ago, it touched and called out to my heart and soul. I knew I had to steward this magical land and share it with the world. I have been doing it ever since and have become a 5-star retreat offering holistic services to our guests. You can offer yours too :)

    It is VITALLY IMPORTANT to feel drawn to "living in union with the land", live organically, use ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS and recycle everything!!!!!!!

    Many helpers have been here and have had fabulous experiences.
    Do you have a can-do attitude? ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE?
    Are you wanting to help with anything and everything that comes along with having a retreat on 5 acres with extensive gardens? Do you live in your heart and give from your heart?
    Do you enjoy taking your morning to yourself for your Spiritual practice? Usual start is between 10:30am & 11am.

    (By the way most of the past workaways have extended their stay or wish they could have because they love it here!
    They are loved too!) 

    Now that you heard all the heavenly details of what we are offering, this is what we trust you will have to enjoy your time: 

    Let's make this a win/win situation for all involved!

    All applicants please ensure you are:
    non-smokers / No drugs
    **A Great Housekeeper - There are 3 complete suites to be "Sparkling Cean" for the guests!!
    Love gardens
    Nature loving
    & open hearted! 
    VEGETARIAN - yes its on the list several times on purpose!
    *Conscious Spiritual People who are into wellness are best aligned.

    Please apply with the CLEAR dates you would like to come. Most of the workaways helpers stay for at least a month or two and usually stay longer.

    Ultimately, the trust is that all will work out as it always does! 


    Kindly understand that this place is NOT suitable for children or pets. Thank you

    Please send your available dates and a note to how you feel you (or the two of you if you are in a motorhome0
