  • Descripción


    Westcoast Home, on a small acreage with two big goofy dogs that love to go for walks to the beach. We are Mariners and love the ocean and are about a 5 minute walk to French Beach and a short drive to Surfing Beaches and the famous Juan De Fuca Trail.
    We are in need of volunteers to help and learn about general gardening and landscaping duties. Duties can also include outdoor arts and crafts and some domestic help around the house would be amazing. We prefer non-smokers.

    We love to cook and teach about life here in a rural community. We prefer the slow food movement and support local ethical farms with organic if possible and sustainable living.

    The accommodation is a private suite overlooking our garden acreage. We live in a rural area with no bus service as of yet ( closest town is a 20 minute drive ) so would like to have volunteers who have means to some sort of transportation.
