  • Description


    *we will need help again starting in May 2022! If you are a baker looking for a great place to live and work next season we would love to hear from you.

    We are a couple with one daughter who own and operate a small and very busy seasonal bakery on the Sunshine Coast of BC. We also have 12 acres of rainforest and are in the process of creating our permaculture gardens and building a new greenhouse in the 3 acres that have been cleared.

    We provide local, organic and fresh food, drinks and delicious baked goods to the many tourists who come to visit the Provincial Park and Sunshine Coast locals.

    If you have experience in baking, making sandwiches, making espresso drinks or serving customers, we could use your help in the bakery this season.
