  • Description

    Description

    We are building a sustainable life on Galiano Island, and would love to share our journey with you. We live on 5 forested acres near a provincial marine park and beaches in the southern gulf islands of BC Canada. We are Tamara, an award winning songwriter and performing artist who also loves gardening, tending our animals, collaborative living and and good food. Brent is a popular YouTuber, and music producer who loves designing synths, video games, making people laugh and building chicken coops! We are excited to resume hosting Workaways with caution and making sure we follow guidelines for safety during this pandemic.
