    Hi, Peter and Sheri here.

    Are you a world traveller looking for a unique and meaningful way to experience a new place? Join our team as a farm exchange worker and help us maintain our beautiful homestead in Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island! From tending to our gardens and flower beds to care for our chickens and sheep, there's always something to do on our diverse and thriving farm.

    Projects Spring 2023 - BOOKED NO Spots Available
    Summer 2023 - Openings June, July, Aug and Sept - spots still available

    We are looking for outdoor help with: Seed starts, clearing beds, bringing in wood to the house for heat from the wood shed, feeding and care for the sheep and chickens. And random farming tasks.

    We enjoy sharing the love and connection to the earth through gardening, animal care and living in a peaceful setting.

    This is a farm and we process and eat our animals. For many years we were vegan and have added our own meat to our menu as we are working on creating a sustainable life, where we can live off of as much of the land as possible. We eat many vegan meals and have meat few times a week. We buy legumes, wheat, oils and beans as they are not native here. Being a farm and in nature, the full cycle of life is part of everyday living, from death to birth.

    We would love to have visitors to learn and grow with, in exchange for food and a place to stay we ask for 5 hrs a day 5 days a week. We are close to town 20 min walk, have bicycles for travellers and occasionally we do day trips. You have lots of time for weekend trips or afternoon outings once the chores are completed.

    You will stay in the main house with us, we have 4 bedrooms rooms with 3 bathrooms for travellers. We have a kitchen and offer many food choices. We eat together, and share the food preparation. If you are an amazing cook this would be added fun. We would love to add your recipes to the kitchen, cooking is considered part of your daily allotted work time.

    *This is a nonsmoking property.

    *We do not accept travellers with pets.

    *Social drinks are accepted at your own expense.

    *You will be considerate towards others at all times and participate in daily routines such as general cleaning, meals preps, and maintaining main areas such as kitchen, bathroom, kennel, chicken coup, sheep house, and all living and entertaining areas clean daily.
