  • Description


    My name is Samuel. I have 26 acres only a few minutes drive from Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island.
    One of the largest and most beautiful lakes on the island!

    I'm 28 years old and highly motivated.
    Any respectful people are welcome to come stay here and help me transform this acreage into a little paradise.

    Right now I am working on building hiking trails and clearing more land. I want to build some little waterfalls, firepits, nicer camping grounds, outdoor ovens and seating areas are also super awesome ideas to me!

    I am planning on starting a small farm to ensure we always have fresh organic foods and meats!
    Planting fruit trees and berrys of all kinds would be amazing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live in a small quiet town beside one of the largest beautiful lakes on Vancouver Island. With rivers to go tubing down, mountains to go bike riding on, or hiking, the location is beautiful.

    There is a beautiful pond which you can swim in and go kayaking on right here as well!

    I also have a metal working company here! Specializing mostly in Aluminum welding and CNC Mill Machining, we make the coolest things! If you have an interest in metalwork, we can certainly teach you a bit.

  • Help


    I always have many different tasks which you could help with. From gardening to building trails to helping make ponds and waterfalls, experience the beautiful outdoors with me!

    We are wanting to build vegetable gardens and plant fruit trees also to build a small self sustaining food source.

  • Accommodation


    If you come in a camper van, we can hook you up to power and fresh water.
    I am preferring travelers that have their own RV or Camper van etc right now

    As the weather is getting nicer, tenters are also welcome.

    There is a kitchen you can cook in. With so many people having allergies or personal food requests, we ask that workaways with any special requirements bring their own food.
    Grocery stores are only 5 minutes away.

    I are very accommodating and would like the workaway to be fun and exciting for you!
    High speed internet access 24/7.
    A bus route right is outside the front of the property so you can travel easily even if you do not have a drivers license
    The house has a small movie theater so you can enjoy films with us.

    Are you wanting to move permanently to Canada? We may be able to help with that.
