  • Description

    Description

    please note, during this time the farm will be offering a different situation - only 10 hours per week instead of 25, , plus $10. per day per person, workawayers need to provide their own food There will be an average of 6 helpers at any time. Places to stay include a 2 bdm. cottage, a barn loft, side cabin, seaside room, cherry tree room, and vintage trailer.

    This is a sanctuary that strives to give people an intimate experience with nature, birdlife, horses, dogs, and farm sustenance. Looking for helpers who truly honor mother earth, and want to help keep the farm beautiful, plant, harvest and trim, and enjoy the gifts the island has to offer. Recently this year helpers built me a chicken coop, it's beautiful, and a lovely sheep fence and shelter. I am looking for carpenters who can operate tools including chainsaws, handy at plumbing is a bonus, but also it's important to honour organic food~ The eagles above are active every day. The farm is also looking for experienced horse trainers/riders. But also anyone who chooses to buy organic food is welcome!~

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    having a beautiful place to live and connect to the land, learning about organic farming and self sustainability, canoeing, connecting with other workaways, the horses, chickens, sheep, cats, dog, and bnb guests - it's a truly special island to experience.

    Help

    Right now there is planting, pruning, harvesting, watering, soil making, horse work, general tidying., and building a tiny house. It's a beautiful setting, so it's enjoyable. A helper is always encouraged to be happy and choose what suits them best. Please come if you can build things or have other useful skills!~
    Horse training would be an amazing help, but anyone with horse experience is fine,
    or anyone with a nack for details and creating beauty.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    the summer is particularly busy, lots of harvesting fruit and berries, maintaining fencing, watering, . There are canoes here, bicycles, paddleboard, hikes & beaches nearby, village is close too, so lots to do and explore. The island is full of hills so it's more effort to get around. The seaside deck is very cool on the warm summer days, there are also many large trees and forests surrounding the farm to keep it's integrity intact. Sunsets are the best! The winter brings us indoors more, but we learn to face the elements every day, and plan accordingly. Your help is always greatly appreciated!~
