  • Description


    I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, in Powell River BC. 5 minutes from the sandy Donkersley Beach, endless walking trails and backcountry access. I'm looking for help on my 2 acre homestead which is currently in the middle of renovations... but more importantly, looking to make new connections, have some conversation and play some music! Ferry access by Vancouver Island or the lower mainland (Vancouver area). Small coastal town surrounded by scenic coastal mountain range and many lakes, world famous hiking and biking trails. 15 minute bus ride from downtown Powell River.

    Living in a beautiful coastal town a short walk from the ocean with access to fishing, hiking, camping, sightseeing and rock climbing. Come enjoy the laidback lifestyle and local music scene. Do you play an instrument? I have a fully functioning band / jam space and would love to add to my musical ability by playing and learning music with other people. Powell River is one of the most breathtaking and serene places in Canada with very mild seasonal temperatures. Learn to fish on the ocean, hike in the mountains and live the laidback coastal BC lifestyle!

  • Help


    I'm in the middle of home renovations and currently have one paid skilled worker staying on the property. Role would be more of a helper for a few hours per day. Tidying up from carpentry projects, learning to do such things as baseboards, window trim, some siding and landscaping.

    Help will include some light farm duties such as feeding the animals, cleaning out the small barn and goat pen. Very relaxed environment and you may work at your own pace :)
