    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Saltspring Island is the most popular of the southern gulf islands, Many hikes and forest adventures as well as fresh and salt water beach access. Canada is a very large country and we all feel that this part of our great country is the Caribbean of Canada All building construction work will be taught and supervised. Any construction skills will be appreciated, (painting,plastering etc)

  • Help

    Help

    We have a variety of work here. We farm and garden, as well as a few different building projects in various stages.We are willing to teach construction work so all we need is an positive attitude! We try to work in concert with the weather, cool in the morning we work outside gardening etc. As the day warms up we find inside work to stay cool, and when the heat is on we go to the beach.
