  • Descrição


    We are a community of wonderful people living, playing, working, dancing and growing food together. We have 12 people living on our 5 acre property two families and with two kids each and 5 adults. We connected with another 6 acre property with roughly the same amount of people. We are artists, woodworkers, healers, dreamers, forest dwellers, musicians, clowns, professionals and more. Between our two properties we share a community garden about an acre in size. we also share an outdoor community kitchen and yurt. We love to get together for potlucks, jams, dance parties, and ceremonies.

    Our property is nestled in the amazing temperate rainforest in the Cowichan Valley. Surrounded by trees on one side and the river on the other side. We are a 3 min. walk to an incredible slow moving warm river great for swimming and tubing(yes we have the gear for that). Right our door is the Cowichan River Provincial park which has lots of amazing hiking and biking trails for your enjoyment. In and around our neighbour you may see, black bears, herons, river otters, owls, elk and many more of our furry friends. The nature here truly is majestic. Our property has a few ponds and an artesian spring to drink from. I know we are quite spoiled, that's why we want to share it with others.

    Our property is close to two towns. and an hour away from Victoria. We are also about an hour away from the West coast of Vancouver Island and the amazing old growth trees so many are fighting to save.

The nature itself is one of the best reasons to join us here. it is truly beautiful.

  • Ajuda


    We always need help in all stages of our garden. This includes seeding, prepping beds, transplanting, harvesting, weeding etc. We usually meet one day a week as a community but love a good workaway that's in there more often. In general we are looking for help around the land, maintaining paths, removing invasive plants, Weed wacking, lawn mowing and fixing things that may get broken. We always need help in all stages of our garden. This includes seeding, prepping beds, transplanting, harvesting, weeding etc. Having four kids we always want to attract people who love being around kids and want engage with them whenever they get a chance. Occasionally we may need help with watching our kids(don't worry our kids are really fun) or with some help around the house, doing odd jobs. We are open to someone that might want to help create meal plans or cook large meals for the two families. Generally most of the help is needed in the garden and around the land.

  • Acomodação


    We have a truck camper that has a queen bed in it and a little kitchen and table. It's cozy and comfortable. The camper faces into the giant trees behind our land. We also have a "Weirdo". You ask whats a "Weirdo" the weirdo is a custom built triangular camper that was dubbed the "Weirdo". I has a double bed and single bed that folds down into a table. It has a tiny kitchen. The "Weirdo" is nestled into the trees facing our giant forest behind us. We also have heaps of room to park your own rig or a tent or two.

    Although each dwelling has a little kitchen most workaways use our beautiful outdoor kitchen. It has lots of space and feels great. We often have our potlucks and jams here. The kitchen is shared space on the border of our two properties.

    We are currently building outdoor showers, so for the meantime Workaways shower in either of the main houses on the property.

    We have a compost toilet that is kept clean and emptied regularly.

    Laundry is done in the houses or at a laundromat
