    We welcome some help doing some finishing DIY, fencing, gardening.

    Powell River is a couple of ferry rides up from Vancouver, but you only pay for one (one is free each way) . You also get her from Vancouver island. to It is worth the extra effort to get here and be near the world renouwed Desolation Sound, hot sandy beaches of Savary Island, Powell Lake Canoe route, the Sunshine coat trail. Powell River is a up and coming, under the radar arts and culture town with unsurpassed opportunity for wilderness exploration.

    We have had several people that want to work on the camper vans for some reason. So it's been a bit of a trend but don't be scared away otherwise. We can help the right people get up here if needed.

    We have private living/cooking/ bathing space for you durning this COVID-19 thing.

    We live in Wildwood, a semi rural part of Powell River, on the sunshine coast of B.C. It’s a part of town known for its orchards, farmers, bear sightings and quirkiness. It’s not uncommon at our house to see someone walking a lama or riding a horse by, at the same time as the city bus flies by. We are fostering a music, art, gardening, home renovation, eco world here. We have started growing a garden, built a greenhouse, and learning to care for a small orchard. We like to explore the dreamy backcountry in B.C. that is right at our doorstep. We go boating, fishing, mushroom picking, and attend some hiking, music and art events around town.

    We are trying to fix up an old neglected house and outbuildings. Trying to add some sleeping lofts, to build up a bit of art camp gardening backpackers heaven, or at least stop it from degrading and enjoy it. We could use some people that want to work hard but also bring some joy around the property.

    We are on the city bus route on the northern edge of Powell River where it feels rural but it is in town. It's close the lake and ocean. It is easy to get around in a funky part of town. there is lots going on in the few kms around us like a new climbing gym, brew pub (wildwood public house is 5 blocks away) and brewery.

    Algo mais...

    We would prefer to have 3 hours a day work for 5 days, with 2 days off and not include food rather than the standard 5 hrs a day with food and cooking supplied. We just don't have time to cook and shop right now. We do promise a good cultural exchange. So if you would prefer a little more time off to enjoy, and don't mind cooking and buying your own food, this would work great for you. There is so much outdoor and cultural activities to offer, weekly pottery, jamming.. boating fishing lots of fun. It's magic here.
