Not Accepting New Helpers At The Moment. Thanks

Hello Helpers,

We are a retired couple who have moved to Quadra Island and are in the process of creating a serene oasis on our 3 acre property. We would like to invite motivated, engaging, happy helpers to give us a hand with all manner of manual labour.i.e. preparing the land for a veggie garden and improving what is here already.

Being "morning" people, we prefer helpers who greet the day with good humor and positive energy.

We request 25 hr per week in the mornings. Lunch is eaten together, leaving afternoons free for exploring our trails, lakes, beaches, climbing rocks and quaint village. We provide food for breakfast and supper and it's casual so you can eat when you it suits you.
We also have kayaks and bicycles you are welcome to use. Or, if you wish to stay on the property, hang out on the dock, and watch marine life, (seals, otters, porpoise, mink and tons of bird life etc) you are welcome to do so.
Chores vary and could be wood chopping, rock work, gardening, clearing brush, building, maintenance... depending on the time of year and weather conditions. Please be prepared to get dirty and sweaty at times.

You will have a private room, bath and wifi.

Our offering would suit helpers seeking a quiet, more contemplative, introspective environment. If you take yourself and life very seriously and are uncomfortable with emotional honesty and wicked humour, this may not be for you!! However, we can, and do,have meaningful conversations from time to time :)
Part of our early past life included living off grid, hunting/gathering, growing, preserving and using recycled materials.

Sorry, no tobacco smoking.

Please don't hesitate to make contact if you have an interest in helping and sharing our little piece of paradise on this beautiful island.
