We are a family of three (12 year old daughter). We live on a small, 2 acre farm with an apple/cherry/peach/fig orchard, ducks, chickens and an ocean view. It is in a quiet part of Vancouver Island, but only a 45 minute drive to Victoria. Lots of beautiful hiking trails, including one starting just 100 metres from our house that leads you to waterfalls and the ocean. We also have two loving cats and a small dog.
Help with Eco Projects
Learn about orchard management, vegetable gardening and planning, we speak English (plus some French and Spanish). Get to live on a beautiful property close to the ocean and trails.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
General fruit tree and vegetable garden work. Always happy to train people that are keen to prune fruit trees, or start their own vegetable patch from scratch. Also some caring for ducks and chickens.
This host offers a language exchange
Happy to help teach English to French or Spanish speakers.
RV - Camper. It has a double bed, plus a small fridge, sink, bathroom and table that converts to another bed if needed. Max of two people. People also have access to our house (to use the bathroom, meals, playing games, etc.). We share dinners (preparing and eating). Breakfast and lunch can be prepared in the camper or our house by guests for themselves only. They can eat as much locally produced eggs, produce, fruit, etc. that they want.
Good hiking and local swimming spots. Beautiful rivers, lakes and walking distance to the ocean.
