    Description

    A beautiful 5 acre heritage property near Sooke, B.C. This is a new project for me, there is plenty to do and I could use a lot of help! Eventually I would like to get the garden going with permaculture techniques but before that can happen the ground needs some work. Also there is plenty of renovation tasks plus the usual day to day cleaning and cooking.

    The main house is a big farm house with plenty of room. So far I've had family and friends staying and helping out- my first workawayers, I love sharing this space. It's very tranquil here, set in the forest with a beautiful pasture next door. The beach is a 10 minute walk away where you can surf, standup paddle or just beach comb and watch the seals and sea lions. Sooke is a 10 minute drive away, there are no busses out here but I go to town quite a bit and its easy to get a ride.
