    Description

    We are a family of 3 adults . My partner Victor, our daughter Luna Maeva and I. Since recently we have our daughter Maï and her super 4 years old son living with us on the property.
    We love travelling , so we know what it is to be staying with locals.
    We are interested in simple healthy living, gardening, fishing, hiking, music playing and farming.
    We have been west coaster for over 30 years. We know the coast very well.

    We are farming the land on our hobby farm .
    We are currently the holders of this goregous piece of land, on Quadra Island.
    I like to think it s the land of possibilities. Amazing soil for gardening, chickens, pond.
    We also own a oyster farm with an old overgrown homestead on a nearby island .We need help in reclaiming the land on that old west coast homestead.
    We live with the rythm of the tides, the weather, our moods . Using our small boat to move around on the coast is part of our lifestyle.
    Victor is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about farming and the ocean life and will gladly share his knowledge and show you his wonderful world on boat.
    Our Quadra Island farm is in need of tender loving care.
    From building garden beds, planting trees, weeding, cutting fire wood, fencing, building small building..the list is endless.
    We love sharing..life story..food, music.we have a lots of musical instruments.
    We are also passionate with latin culture, spending months at the time in MEXICO every years.
    We need people that are independent and flexible.
    Interested in learning. Flexible because we have funny schedule.
    People with SKILLS IN BUILDING and knowing how to use TOOLS is a plus.
    The coast is incredibly beautiful and so rich.
    We have an interesting lifestyle, enjoying nature all of the time.
