  • Description


    Our farm is a gorgeous community property on Salt Spring Island, 18 acres with various families and residents.
    Your main host is Freyja, her partner David, and her daughter Shaeanna (11)
    The farm has extensive apple orchards and we are working on establishing a permaculture food forest system here by planting a wide variety of fruit and nut trees, bushes, shrubs and berries with herbs and vegetable gardens interspersed. Some of the first trees we planted are coming to fruition, but it is a life long project!

    We are just getting ready for the big apple harvest including cider pressing and drying apples.
    We will also clear up the baby food forest and plant some new trees and berry bushes.

    It would be great to have a couple or two close friends to keep each other company and share the bus and are able to stay longer through the summer.
    A reliable, self-sufficient individual would work too.

    Trade is 25 hours/week for accommodation with meals, or 15 hours/week for accommodation only.
    Most of the tasks are quite physical, so please be prepared to use your muscles!
    No dogs please.
