    I run a tiny salad garden CSA out of my back yard and greenhouse in Vancouver. I provide vegetable boxes to about 10 and a shop in the city! I also try to continue my yoga and dance as well, though my massage practice largely gets put on the back burn during the summer months because of my gardening. I also grow a huge squash crop on an acreage that you could help me with.

    ***UPDATE FOR 2020 SUMMER***

    I am looking for someone or a couple to come stay from April 16th onwards! Ideally looking for someone or a couple to stay for a few months at least, or even the whole season (until October).

    I get lots of applications so please tell if you have any farm experience, when you're available and all the lovely things about you!

    They will get to experience Vancouver in the summer... which is a wonderful city! There is lots of dance and music events around and about, they can take off during the week and explore the gulf islands. My family is super sweet and friendly. I have two boys 18 and 14 who are always in and out, hanging with their friends, playing fortnight and just generally being teens (don't know if thats a selling point or not!). The home stay would learn lots about micro greens set up and developing compost systems. I dance a lot and would be willing to take them around to the various dance communities (ecstatic, contact, blues fusion, salsa, Lindy hop), if covid allows. My husband is Portuguese and makes wonderful Portuguese food when he's not working like a fiend haha.

    I run a small salad garden in my back yard, but the workaway person can do as much or as little intense manual labour as they like. (I literally have unlimited manual labour... but they can also wash veg, sort, weed, or clean the house). I have many garden beds in my back yard and my greenhouse needs tending there too!! Work-away person would ideally have to have a good back (cause my back is a bit funky) and be willing to do lots of weeding/watering and generally playing with all this delicious food!!, bunching, sorting, bagging, planting - that sort of thing). Some ability with small construction projects and power tools helpful but not necessary.

    The home stay would be sleeping in the front room on the entrance level, sharing a bathroom with the two boys (though we have a bathroom on the main floor as well. ) They would have access to our kitchen of course and our living room on the main floor and our back yard. We live in a sweet East Vancouver neighbourhood with many friendly neighbours. We also have a young, CUTE cat called Mittens.

    We are close to a sky train station (Broadway and Commercial) that can take you anywhere in the city quickly and easily. There is also a major bus route (the 99) which connects the east side to the west side. We live close to Trout Lake, so there is very sweet walking and sometimes swimming in the lake when the water is good. There is a market there every Saturday which we like to go to when we have time. The home stay can sometimes use our van if that works, there's only one car for the family so we all share and can make it work I'm sure. Also homestay is welcome to use our bikes.

    We are largely paleo (so lots of meat and veggies), although open to all kinds of different diets and habits. Homestay must be ok with the smell of bacon though! (Some vegan folks in the past really weren't ok with the smell of bacon.. but it's not everyday I promise). No smoking in the house please but outside ok. We are generally a fun-loving home, lots of people coming and going, but since covid we have been very insulted and take covid very seriously. (I have an autoimmune and can’t get covid). I do a lot of yoga and meditation (at 5:30 am) to keep myself cool, calm and collected! I
