  • Descripción


    We live on a beautiful and peaceful 5 acre property on Vancouver Island outside of Nanaimo/Ladysmith, BC. We are keen young(ish) permaculture enthusiasts who bought this property a year ago. We lease one acre of the property to a small mixed vegetable farm business to help feed our community fresh local food (workaway volunteers would not be asked to participate in the business). We also participate in a gleaning program where we pick fruit that might otherwise go to waste. What this means is that we have an ABUNDANCE of wonderful local food!
    We are located close to a beautiful park & ecological reserve with trails, and we are a few mins drive from a local rocky beach area where we sometimes swim in the ocean. We are about 20 mins from any town centre and so it would likely be easiest for any guests to have a vehicle, unless you are up for very quiet living close to home (which is quite beautiful really)! We are happy to lend bikes and kayaks for exploring our area and can drop workawayers in the city as needed when we go in.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Because of covid-19, we are prioritizing folks who have already been in BC for the past while, as we don't want to encourage traveling afar. The cultural exchange would likely focus on the specifics of Vancouver Island farm life! We have lots of knowledge, ideas and enthusiasm to share about organic gardening, agriculture, wildcrafting, and outdoor adventuring in this beautiful part of the world.

  • Ayuda


    Because we live full lives and have diverse projects, we have some flexibility with what skills and tasks we are looking for. What we need most right now is for folks who enjoy cooking and food preservation who could help us make best use of the extra food that we keep from the farm (we won't ask you to do any work for the farm business). Meals in the freezer would be awesome! We also would be thrilled to have some help around the house with cleaning. We are open to what interested workawayers most want to contribute! There could be building projects, gardening (eg. planting trees), preparing wood for the winter, contributing to home maintenance (eg. cleanup, painting), offering extra hands for setting up a rainwater harvest system, etc. Let us know what you'd like to offer!

  • Alojamiento


    We have a large RV on the property that was home for 2 of us for a year prior to moving here, and it makes a perfect space for a workaway guest (or couple) who would like to help us out and experience Vancouver Island. The space has a good sized kitchen and living space as well as a bedroom. We would ask you to use the composting toilet outside or the bathrooms in the house. We are flexible with food and happy to share what's grown here on the property as well as groceries.

    We would use a range extender for internet connection from the RV but it may be a bit slow.

    Espacio para aparcar autocaravanas

    A van would likely be ok, however a larger motorhome wouldn't fit well. The location for parking would depend on power needs.
