Some projects coming up are picking potatoes, tending to the garden, fixing things, firewood...
Other things we might need help with:
getting seaweed from the beach / working the compost pile / picking and weeding / fresh food process or sell / gardening / planting / weeding/ feeding rhubarb plants / setting up new garden beds / firewood…
Days are usually 5 hours help with the rest of the day to explore the area. Days are flexible with the weather, which is always changing here, some days longer, some shorter, with some nice days off in there to explore around... it's important to get to check out the area which can be easier when you have a home base
- tenting on the property, (two person tent and thermarests and extra blankets available),
Showers and internet are available though I'd prefer to not host anyone who play video games every day or need to be online all day, the internet signal is good but only in the house (no cell signal in most of the yard).
Surrounding area includes beautiful old-growth rainforest 3min walk, ocean 10min walk, berry picking, great community. Focus is on eating local, seasonal and stored vegetables, local meat (fresh and canned): salmon, deer, seafood, fresh rolled oats, wood cookstove...
My girlfriend and I run the farm. I have 2 goats and milk every day, make cheese sometimes.
Easy access to surrounding attractions which include Tow hill, North Beach, Haida art and Totems in Old Massett, unusual bogs, hiking trails, fishing, crabbing, a great new Haida art museum (in Skidegate), beachcombing and miles of beach to yourself (or almost).
Every season has it's perks, In the fall there s salmon running and wild mushrooms. There's also a bike you can use.
I'm interested in music, people and languages from other parts of the world.
Looking forward to hear from you, Please state what you're interested to learn and your previous gardening experience in email.
