    Description

    My family has helped me acquire this property, so that I may follow my dream in creating a solid community and livelihood, amidst this great community of Roberts Creek, that I know is now my home. I am a health professional and musician. I have travelled, adventured, and climbed and hiked lots around the world. My life, was redirected by an incident that left me a little less invincible than I used to be, but it also directed me to what my heart called for... a home, community , and friends full of love, accepting each other as we are, and not having to do anything differently... a chosen family!

    At the moment, I have 2 postings:
    1. Private room in exchange for 2.5 hours of light cleaning duties/ 4 days per week.
    2. Self contained trailer, outdoor BBQ and fire pit in exchange for 4 hours per day of yard work or light maintenance duties/ 4 days per week. The hours could be done by a single person, or shared by a couple. There is a double bed in the trailer.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Roberts Creek is a small community, full of artists, musicians, organic farms, and the love of life. Experience this friendly community as a local. The beaches and coast line are plenty and a stone's throw away. Hiking and biking trails are a popular destination for many. Kayaking and paddle boarding, music activities, dances and live music shows are available in the summer. As I am learning about sustainable living and managing a larger rural property, you are welcome to learn with me, or to share you knowledge with me. I am also a musician, and I have a room full of instruments to play and jam with.
    We are also located on Shishalh land, (Sechelt Indian Band) and there is opportunity to connect and learn about the Shishalh people.

    I have recently moved to a half acre property on the Sunshine Coast, near the town of Roberts Creek. I am planning to create a sustainable cabin as a wellness cabin, to provide space for physiotherapy, rehabilitation gym, yoga and other healing arts. I am researching compost toilets. grey water, and rain barrels. The cabin structure is built and we are in the stage of decorating cloth walls and arranging space. There may be some work to be done on the cabin, but initially, we are recovering from winter. Yard work is something we need help with at the moment.

    Due to my own injury, I am offering a room in the house for light duties around the house. I like to ask for 4 days a week, so that there is time for you to explore the area as well. The house is a 5 minute walk from the beach, is on the bus line, and is a 15 minute walk (5 minute bike) to the small historic town center. This is a highly sought after tourist area. I have not offered board, but it is possible if we increase the hours in exchange.

    Time off includes hiking or walking on the beach or in the forest, biking, swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding in the ocean, playing music, exploring the farmer markets, taking in live music and festivals, mushroom picking, fishing, bird watching.......

    I am an easy-going musician and health professional. Acquiring this property is a dream of mind, and sharing it with like-minded people, or being introduced to new ideas, is my goal. My future plans for the property, are to help ease lodging shortage on the Sunshine Coast, create healthy and sustainable living accommodations, create a healing space for my own livelyhood (to empower people to learn how to take care of their own bodies), to create a music space for music collaboration and experimentation, and in the future, to have space to allow foster kids from the city to experience and appreciate living near the land and water, in a loving community. I am hoping to allow the opportunity to explore and be inspired by nature and music, to experience good foundations that may help lead to a fulfilled life.
