  • Descripción


    I am a single grandmother. I am scientist studying salmon health and whales and an activist to protect them. I cut all my own firewood and growing 2 larger gardens. I have a dog. I have written several books including Listening to Whales and Not on My Watch. I am trying to increase food security for my community by gradually building a farm focussing on winter vegetables. My home is off-grid on a bluff overlooking an area frequented by whales which I study.

    The property is near a local in a fishing village, a short ferry ride from the larger island of Vancouver Island. I am a scientist, writer, gardener, grandmother and activist studying and protecting wild salmon.

    I am looking for someone who can build a traditional root cellar. Also want to build a large woodshed, post and beam construction with metal roof.

  • Alojamiento


    The accommodation is a tiny house built into a large truck. It is a beautiful space all natural wood, a tiny woodstove and a propane cookstove. It is located in a field frequented by deer. The property is off grid (solar) so power use is limited, no hair dyers :)! The water supply is limited, so no long showers, drinking water will be provided in containers, same as in the main house. There is an outhouse. A family of 4 lived in the tiny house for 5 years. It is comfortable with a double bed, loft, table and counters. There are large gardens with food available and a local market that is small, but well stocked with vegan and organic and other options. I will cover the cost of food, which can be prepared in the tiny house with some shared meals.

    This area is a tourist destination. People visit to see whales, fish for salmon, kayak, camp and bike. Town is 20 minutes away by car down a dirt road. The community is friendly and familiar with Work Away so rides should be easily arranged when I am not heading into town. There is only one restaurant open some days, but not for dinner. The island is ringed with cobblestone beaches. Sea otters, seals, eagles, sea lions are easily visible from the beach.

    There is a large field where a van/motorhome could be parked, but it is off-grid. There is no power to plug into.
