    Good Host
  • Description


    Right now BC is locked down with Travel Bans and fines- I hope that things will open up by the summer that will allow me to host again. Please stay in touch and we can see where things go from there.

    My name is Petra and I have two sons, Trematon and Nicholas and two cats, Thor and Odin. Our life goal is to continue to work on our off-grid 10 acres to become more self sufficient. Our homestead always needs help with new projects or improving existing systems.

    Although we are new to signing up here we have been lucky enough to have had people come to stay from other workaway hosts and decided to actually sign up this year.

    We live part time (away for education) on beautiful Lasqueti Island, one of more rural Gulf Islands in British Columbia. Here you will find an island that lives completely off-grid, no paved roads, no police, strong sense of community, one small convenience store, one bar/restaurant/hotel/gas station all rolled into one, one Free Store, multiple cookie-stands run by the self-serve honor system, an arts center, eccentric characters, feral sheep, billions of stars, gardens galore, houses and structures made in all shapes and forms by all different types of materials. Its an island to learn from, and to share your knowledge.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Lasqueti is a unique island in the Salish Sea that is served by a foot passenger only ferry and is off grid. This setting offers the opportunity to experience daily off grid living in a cultural experience that can only be described as Lasquetian.

    Daily work changes depending on the project focus.

    Most of our building work is done by human-power, which means lots of wheel-barrowing, shovel-digging, and log-dragging activities. At the moment we are looking for people that can split firewood with an axe, use a wheelbarrow to move the split firewood, and finally stack the firewood in the designated location.

    We also need help with day to day living which includes help in the house, general maintenance, and gardening-helping to maintain beds, fruit and nut trees.

    Projects for 2021 include firewood, refinishing the cob outhouse, starting to build an extension on a guest cabin, gardening, and landscaping around an expanded pond.
