Our Farm is a 97 acre therapeutic farm on beautiful Vancouver Island, BC! We are part of a residential community, where adults with developmental disabilities live, work and learn together with their caregivers. We grow a broad range of vegetables for our own use and an extensive range of herbs, for cooking and products to sell. We have cattle, sheep and a small flock of chickens.

Winter is more quiet on the land and the chores slows down. We turn to maintenance and construction during that time. Handy helpers are welcome!
As a licensed care facility, we adhere to all covid regulations.

A stand-alone, small hut with a loft bed. Shared meals in one of our houses. Bathroom is shared in the house next door.
