  • Description


    We are a family of 4, on a acre property in Coastal British Columbia. We live in a cute little village that has access to beaches, mountain biking, and hikes. Our neighbourhood has many horse farms, and it is common for horses to walk by our house! We would like to develop our property a little more so that guests can come and stay here, as well have more garden space for food.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We think our part of the world is just beautiful! A short walk and you are at the ocean, with a lovely sandy beach or you can explore our local forests, mountains, creeks and waterfalls. I am a landscape designer and am trying to incorporate permaculture techniques on our property. I also run a screen printing clothing business and could use help with that. My husband is a musician and enjoys jamming with others from time to time. We have two boys ages 12, and 15 who are into gaming, soccer and basketball.

    We have bikes you can borrow, and access to kayaks as well. We don't mind driving you places from time to time. There is a local bus stop a block away which takes you to two different towns. Our village has a yoga studio, healthfood store, library, cafe and restaurant. We live near a golf course, and a great place to get fresh fish or fish and chips.
