    We are a family of 5 living a sustainable lifestyle on a beautiful 7 acre property beside the Cowichan River. We have 3 children ages 15, 10 and 9 years. We have 2 cats.
    We eat nourishing food and happy meat. We are really easy going and friendly, We love to garden, play, make music and be creative. I am a clothing designer and seamstress and run my business from my home based studio. My husband and i host monthly ecstatic dances in our community where i DJ and he plays live percussion and didgeridoo.
    This summer we host weekly outdoor ecstatic dances on Wednesday mornings on our meadow.
    My husband is a carpenter and builds wooden playgrounds for cities and schools. He is also an instrument builder and professional percussionist, he plays hand drums, hang, didgeridoo and more.

    We are looking for independent work-awayers who would like to stay on our property and prepare some of their own meals. ( Food will be provided of course) We will also eat some meals together. We have a few accommodation options email us to chat about options.
    We are excited to prepare the land for the fall and we have lots projects on the go.
    Renovating an old motor home, firewood stacking, garden help, childcare, developing a trail in the forest to the river.
    Any workawayer that comes must enjoy the company of children as we have 3 awesome kids.

    We are looking for someone who is okay to work out doors in all weather, sometimes with us and sometimes alone. We ask for 25 hours a week in exchange for food, accommodation, laundry and wifi.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We love to share our way of life with others. Being a very creative family we always have some fun project on the go. Its fun for us to show our helpers what we are currently working on in the woodshop and sewing studio. Also we love to share our recipes and cooking styles. We grow our own sprouts, make homeade yogurt and cook many things from scratch. We like to share our knowledge of hula hooping, aerial silks, and slackline with our helpers. We have a trampoline and we love parenting and teaching others about our positive approach to attachment parenting. We feel you could learn alot from us about many different things during your stay. And in saying all this... some days life is very busy around here. With 2 home based businesses and an acreage and 3 kids....but we do our best to make it fun.

    We are looking for help in our veggie garden, childcare, house work and yard work. We really like to tune into our helpers strengths and give them tasks that work for them. We are very easy going and flexible and work together to find a reasonable schedule.
    We like to share our lifestyle with others as it is an alternative Canadian lifestyle where we are truly trying to be the change we wish to see. This spring we have loads of fun work in the garden, childcare and making a trail to the river below our bank.

    We are happy to pick up helpers from Downtown Duncan and occassionally Victoria or Nanaimo if it lines up with one of our trips to the city. We are 1 hr from Victoria and Nanaimo. There is a city bus from Victoria to Duncan now. We ask our helpers to be motivated, must like children, be respectful and no smoking around our family. Any helper becomes an instant part of our family, and is included with our trips to the pool, hikes, school activities etc.
