I am a self motivated 42 year old woman from Quebec. I have lived on Haida Gwaii, BC for 8 years now and just bought a property which I am very excited to settle onto! I have travelled extensively and lived abroad for many years and love to meet folks from around the globe. I am living in a remote community on a remote island called Haida Gwaii which is a rainforest surrounded by the sea and by mountains. I have a kayak and paddle board, a bike and lots of knowledge of the surrounding area to share.

I am a cook, I also work doing Thai and Swedish massage, and am an avid outdoors enthusiast who loves to do wild harvesting, transformation and experimenting. I also love dance and yoga and art. I can exchange with my volunteers in 3 languages about world travel, local wild harvested food and culture, and much more!
I have just finished deconstructing a house (Eco Project - reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible), and I will need help with re-building a shed, building a yurt plateform, setting up garden beds, making a compost bin, building a foot path and greenhouse, etc. Lots of opportunities to learn new skills and share experiences! I would prefer self-motivated, hard working travelers that have a minimum of experience but am willing to accommodate folks with little knowledge but a good dose of motivation and determination! Using power tools and hand tools is part of the job so if you have knowledge in that area, that is great! If you are willing to learn, that is also awesome! My house has just been moved to my property (July 2022) so there is lots to do!!! The closest grocery store/post office/liquor store/restaurants are only 5 minutes away (walking), and the woods with hiking trails are 30 seconds away, as is the ocean!!!
Private room with double bed in my house. I have a 2 bedroom house, with each bedroom being at opposite ends of the house. I would enjoy cooking to be shared but am prepared to cook for volunteers as well if that isn't part of your skill set! Would love to share at least 1 meal a day with volunteers.
In our spare time, you can definitely go hiking in beautiful forests or on deserted beaches, you can use my double kayak and/or paddle board to explore some of the small islands in the bay, you can walk around town and explore the Haida cultural museum, the restaurants and library. This is a small community so no shopping malls or chain stores here!!! I also built a mobile sauna which you are free to use!
