We share a beautiful lakeside home & garden on the north east side of Quadra Island. We grow food, flowers, native plants, fruit trees on a large forested property. We have also been doing small-scale mushroom growing for a few years and are expanding this project in the woods, with ongoing shitake logs, also now some reishi, chicken-of-the-woods, and more.

We keep very busy with the garden during summer and shoulder season, but move out of our house during peak vacation rental season, so we don't have accommodation during July and August.

We can use help in the garden, on forest trails, rural driveway maintenance, a few alternative building projects, and the big spring job of prepping the house for vacation rentals (cleaning, repair). Best to get in touch with us to share your interests and skills, as projects vary widely with the season, weather, and our own work. We have an easy-going but busy schedule, make and share great meals with friends and family and helpers. We have a canoe and kayak, and a bike or 2 for wilderness lake and nearby exploration. We enjoy sharing art, music, wildcrafting, and coastal exploration.

p.s. Sorry we had trouble logging in for a while - we are now again connected with HelpEx and will be better responders to inquiries!
