We are a young working couple who have been developing our 2.5 peri-urban property into a productive and diverse hobby farm as we explore gardening, animals and beekeeping. We terraced our hillside in March 2021 and have turned what many would consider marginal land into an abundant garden. We are active outdoors on the lake or hiking when not working and enjoy being social and hosting friends and family for meals and games. Our farm is located an hours walk from downtown or a 5-10 minute drive and are close to a local cidery and hiking trails. We currently have a dog, two cats and 33 chickens.

Learn about permaculture gardening and farming practices with us as we implement new systems on the farm. The Okanagan has many recreational activities such as lakes, mountains, trails as well as an amazing area to visit local farms, wineries and cideries. Vernon is a great place to live and visit with beautiful scenery, local markets and events, and an amazing local food community.
We have many garden and landscaping projects planned for this summer including: planting/weeding, plant starts, terrace maintenance, beekeeping, upkeep on the chicken run, harvesting, mowing, irrigation set up, rock wall building, pruning/pest management, firewood, wood chipping, building raised garden beds, building a tool shed/gazebo, painting/staining etc...
Private sleeping space in loft (accessible via ladder) with off-grid washroom (composting toilet) and kitchen and table/seating area. Only biodegradable soaps/products permitted - we can provide. Laundry available in our main house. Workawayers are welcome to harvest garden goodies when available and will be invited to share meals with us.
Bikes available to borrow, our farm is located an hours walk from downtown (20-30 minutes to closest bus route) or a 5-10 minute drive and are close to a local cidery and hiking trails.
