  • Description

    Description

    We are developing this farm in Nanoose Bay, Vancouver Island and need help to make this dream come true. We are building greenhouses and developing the whole farm into a garden and place of pease.

    The Farm is also home for trees plant that have been rescued as well as a tree nursery. We save trees from demolition machines and nurse them for clients until the new home is built.

    The Yurt Village is under development and will be home to travelers and locals alike to have retreats and just recharge their batteries and do soul work.

    They will learn Permaculture and also experience the beauty of the surrounding BC nature reserve, only a short walk, ride away. There are also trails and close to the ocean. Horse rides as well as the joy of help building a Mongolian Yurt during their stay on the farm.

    We have musical evenings by the fire and can experience a large Canadian drum - made on the island.

    Help

    We are looking for eager helpers to assist with the building of our nursery and the setting up of our Permaculture gardens. All levels of skills from builders to garden and horticulturist also welcome.

    UPDATE: Since the farm is in its early stages of development, we currently need a lot of help with construction of Yurts and Greenhouses, as well as Rolling Tables for the Trees. Also we are mixing soil and planting the trees for the nursery and planting garlic. In addition to that we need help with general maintenance on the property like looking after the chickens and the garden.

    We are a short distance from Nanoose Bay ocean where there are awesome beaches, 1.5 km from the Englishmans River Falls and suspension bridge, with Bike Trails and hikes as well as a beautiful pond on the farm where evening sunsets are around the 2 acre pond.

    There are 4/5 bikes available to do your own rides and horses on a neighboring farm.

    N.B. People note that if you have the flu or fever on your time of arrival. Please rather postpone your trip and get well before you get to the farm. This request is out of respect for the other WorkAway team on site. That way we can avoid every one getting sick. Thank you for understanding.
