    Helpers can explore the beautiful nature when time off, or playing with or lovely pigs and emus. Duncan has very nice totem poles tours, same as Lake Cowichan is a nature playground of wade boarding, kayaking, swimming, boating, SUP, or just a good hike! Nearby Chermanius is a city of murals if you're interested in art. Too much to do.
    We are accessible by bus if you don't have a car.
