  • Descripción

    Descripción

    We are a small farm in development at the exciting stage of breaking new ground and getting crops in for the first time. We are approaching farming from permaculture and regenerative agriculture perspectives. The land has been used to raise sheep for many years, but we are moving toward growing vegetables to share, and plan on building a new chicken coop soon. My elderly parents live next door, but are avid gardeners themselves.

    You will learn lots about the native species here on the Canada's West Coast, as the property contains a large area of protected Garry Oak ecosystem. You will learn about the challenges and rewards as we learn to farm. We're also happy to teach you everything we know about small livestock.

    Other than the simple willingness to help and do what is needed, a valuable skill someone could bring here are vegetable gardening and experience in construction or building fences, but we are also happy to share the knowledge we have in these areas. We have our first crops going in this year, and we need help with planting, watering & weeding. We are also installing a new irrigation pump and water lines. We can always use help repairing and building new fences. For the horticulturist, there is an established ornamental garden that we can teach you more about.

    We prefer relatively independent self motivated people. In hotter months, you'll have the best experience if you get started early in the day on a project, and feel a sense of accomplishment by the time you finish and have lunch, and still have time to get out and explore in the afternoons. We tend to have quiet evenings on the farm, but often have extended family drop in for outside social time on the weekends.

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    * During this global pandemic, we will ask about your previous travels and request that you to maintain a reasonable physical distance and be particularly cautious during your first two weeks with us, but you have your own private accommodation so this is easy to accomplish. *

    We offer a self contained clean and dry RV / caravan / travel trailer that gives you your own private space on the property with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living area and forest views. It is best suited to a single or couple, but we recently had a toddler come along with some helpers and everything worked out just fine. We provide the basics, and there is food to share from the garden.

    We are easy going and open minded, with just a few basic requests.. the property is non smoking, and we cannot accept pets (due to older small dogs and sheep on the property).

    Our farm is located on the rural edge of Victoria, BC and is surrounded by ocean beaches, lakes, cycling and hiking trails and are a 15 minute walk from the nearest shopping, and close to a well serviced bus route that can take you a half hour to downtown Victoria, which is rich in culture and scenery. All of our past helpers have enjoyed using this location as a home base to explore the area, and several have returned for repeated visits.

    We have a decent high speed internet connection 98% of the time, however, we are in a rural area so does go out from time to time. If you need to be constantly connected, we recommend having a cellular data plan as backup. You may also want to bring a range extender to extend our signal further than it is currently broadcast to give you more freedom to sit in various places around the farm.
