We are an active semi-retired couple with a wonderful big Bernese/Newfie dog on a small Island on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. We want to expand our drip irrigation system to support the (re)introduction of native plant species to our waterfront island landscape.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
British Columbia has one of the largest coastal temperate rainforests in the world, and yet, we often don't have sufficient water! Living on traditional territories of the K'omox First Nations and Coast Salish peoples, there is a rich cultural groundedness here. Local celebrations include many important and historical events in the colonization (and hopefully, decolonization) of First Nations people all over the province.
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help digging, weeding, wheelbarrowing, and generally improving the soil to make this a reality. We’d appreciate help with reorganizing our veggie/fruit/nut gardens too!

We can provide amazing detached waterfront accommodation for a couple who enjoy outdoor activities such as paddling, hiking, biking, and swimming with access to a heated swimming pool and hot tub! (paddle boards, bicycles, etc. available for use)
We are an animal friendly, non- smoking plant based home and are happy to provide food and some shared meals that support this lifestyle to compatible working people.
What else ...
So much to do: next door world famous Hornby Island beaches, mountains, artisans; Vancouver Island mountains, surf Long Beach, Tofino, shops, and other great stuff to do - just ask! Victoria and Vancouver are both about 3 hours away (by car/bus and ferry) if you need a larger city experience.
