Help with Eco project
You will discover West coast rain forrest and marine life, get experience in organic gardening and enjoy gracious West coast living.
You will help with (organic) gardening and general house and property maintenance, including (if you wish) cutting trees, driving a backhoe operating a small sawmill. We also have an eco project on a big 80-acres forested property that we would love to have help with. Love for nature and gardening and basic handyman skills are essential.
