We are a young family who live just outside Armstrong, BC. We moved here from the city 1.5 years ago to follow our dream of creating a self sustaining permaculture homestead farm community.
We have another family with a 5 year old son, who built a small home on our farm and work on the farm with us. We also have a single mom with 6 year old and 18 month old daughters who live in the suite in our house. We all have meals together at least once a week and value doing life together.
Michael runs his own business as a financial planner and accountant, and Anna is a nurse with a background in wound care, but now runs her own practice doing neurofeedback for people, which supports the brain by helping it to self regulate. It's helpful for people who struggle with mental health, learning difficulties, brain injuries and more.
We have a 4 year old daughter and almost 2 year old son. We have 2 big dogs, 3 kittens, about 35 chickens, 1 sheep and 1 goat, and plan to get pigs in the spring. We also built a very large vegetable garden and planted a small fruit orchard last spring.
We love to go on hikes, lots of beach day trips, camping in the summer, biking as a family, playing tennis, wine tasting. We also love to travel as much as we can, whether that's weekend trips in our own amazing province of British Columbia, or internationally (before all this covid craziness!). Of course now with starting the farm, most of our time is taken up with that, making it harder to get time away or take a break, which is why we'd love some help! ;)
We believe in taking care of our bodies with fresh organic whole foods, and make our own organic sourdough, kombucha, and raw whole milk yoghurt. This is the reason we have decided to build our homestead farm.
We also really value living in community and sharing life with others. We love Jesus and seek to follow Him in all we do, and share his love with others. We're part of a little community church nearby also and would love any visitors to join us there but of course if you're not interested that's totally fine 😊
We are looking for people with experience in, or an interest in learning about, permaculture. For summer and fall 2023 we are needing a person or couple to mainly work in the garden and outside on the farm. Experience with building projects and cooking could also be valuable.

We request only unvaccinated workawayers. We require a workaway who is able to speak and understand English well. Sorry guys, but ladies only preferred for help with childcare. Also, due to having young children in the home, we request a workaway who does not smoke or vape. We would prefer someone who is able to stay a minimum of 2 months, and would prefer longer stays. Our ideal timing is arrival May or June and we'd like to have someone until the end of October.
