*Currently looking for help with garden, irrigation, spring cleanup etc once the pandemic restrictions lift for 1-2 weeks.

**Looking for help for 1.5 months during harvest season starting mid-September until the end of October.

We are looking for help in our Micro-Vineyard and garden. We have a great little property on Vancouver Island, close to the town of Sidney and Victoria, with hiking trails nearby and access to the beach right across the street where you can catch beautiful ocean sunsets!

The help we are looking for includes anything from picking grapes, spraying vines (with a backpack sprayer, all organic sprays), cleaning buckets, crushing grapes, racking juice in tanks, pruning vines, rototilling, general vineyard labour. Also, weeding in the garden, planting, building simple farm structures such as gardening plots.
Potentially helping with cooking some dinners and cleaning.

We have a bedroom downstairs where you will have your own privacy and access to your own bathroom. The bathroom is only used by us when we are in the winery area but mostly it will be your own space.

We eat everything but can easily accommodate vegetarians.

We are able to accept a maximum of 2 helpers at a time, if you are friends or a couple as we only have 1 bedroom with a double bed so you would have to be comfortable sharing a bed.

We live in a rural area across the street from a few beautiful beach accesses and only 8 minutes drive to the town of Sidney, 8 minutes from the Victoria International Airport (YYJ), 7 minutes from the BC Ferries (Swartz Bay Terminal) and 35 minutes to downtown Victoria. The bus stop is a 30 second walk from our house with buses coming 8 times during the weekdays, 4 times Saturday and 3 times Sunday.

Our family of 5 (3 young kids) enjoy living a positive, happy life with a lot of family time and fun around the house. We love making delicious dinners, paired with great wine.
We are looking for people who are kind and considerate and hope to make lifelong friends! :)

There is absolutely no smoking allowed on our property.

For safety reasons, we will photocopy your ID upon arrival.
