We will be accepting vaccinated workawayers starting May 2022 in Victoria and March 15 2022 in Parksville BC - depending on public health advisories.
We have purchased a farm property in Parksville (two hours north of Victoria) of just over an acre that we are turning into a permaculture flower farm with a natural swimming pond and sauna. We can transport workawayers between Victoria and Parksville if you would like to spend time in both locations.
We need help with landscaping, gardening and household tasks. Anyone with carpentry or other mechanical skills would also be great.
We have nice self-contained well furnished accommodation in Victoria and in Parksville with fast internet and laundry. It is largely self-catering (you make your own food from the groceries or heat meals we have prepared), but we hope you will come share some meals with us too.
I'm a certified permaculture designer and lawyer, my husband is a pharmacist, and we have four young adult sons. We enjoy family, gardening, cooking, pets (we have a friendly cat but she is not in your suite, so if you have allergies you'll be ok), being out on our boat, being away, and being at home. We have travelled a lot and enjoy meeting new people.
We need help mostly with:
general yard work and gardening
various construction projects
some cooking prep/batch cooking for the family and you
other small maintenance matters
Sorry, but we cannot accommodate smokers. We can accommodate vegetarians.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We will meet and spend time with you but you will be on your own some of the time. Our place is centrally located and near the buses so you will be close to much of what the beautiful garden city of Victoria has to offer. Our property in Parksville is close walking distance to the mall and beach, but has a rural feel as it over an acre in size.
We are looking for garden and yard work primarily. Experience in this area is a plus. Cleaning and home maintenance experience are also very useful. Carpentry skills would be excellent.
Varies depending on time of year but will be in a suite with full kitchen, bathroom, laundry, bed and internet.
Bus routes, attractions and shopping nearby. We can help with any questions about Victoria or Parksville!
