    Descripción

    Our home is a small family run hobby farm on 2.5 acres in beautiful Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We have 3 horses (1 huge draft x, Hugo, & 2 adorabe miniature horses, Penny & Ziggy) 2 dogs, farm cats, fruit trees, & a patio garden. Shawnigan Lake wonderful for swimming. There are many trails & mountains near by for those who love to hike. Weekend adventures are an easy commute with Victoria to the South and all of the rest of our amazing Island to the North! Transportation/rides for weekend get aways can usually be arranged. Accommodation can be in our comfortable guest room with a shared bathroom or for the more outdoorsy type, tenting is available with access to bathroom/shower. We have a great firepit (propane fire pit during fire bans) area for starry nights by the fire and a spacious deck to lounge & enjoy at the end of the day. We have a large variety of board games, free WiFi access, & TV. We love to meet new people and are always open to learning from shared experiences. We always have a list of projects on the go. Boredom is not a problem. Our current need is to do some more fencing & gates, creating a new vegetable garden area, and clearing a trail for a new track system for the horses! We have the appropriate tools etc. Just never enough time to get everything done ourselves. My husband also has ongoing renovations for our home that may need the odd helping hand! It will be great😅😁😎

    They'll gain insights into the joys & challenges of small scale hobby farming. Hopefully we'll all enjoy the exchange of new food ideas as well as learning other useful skills from each other as we tackle our daily projects. Language & other cultural exchanges are looked forward to as we work, hang out, & get to know one another. Also weekend outings to explore beautiful Vancouver Island will be rich experiences for sure.

    At this time workawayers with building, painting, fencing, gardening, or landscaping skills would be most helpful. Must thoroughly enjoy animals of all types as we are a very pet friendly home. A love of food & friends is also an asset!
