Come work with us to develop an alternative, farm-life experience!

During your stay you will learn and implement permaculture practices with much diversity, from market garden farming to working on natural buildings (cob house), wood-frame construction and many other communal infrastructure projects. You will experience a full immersion into farm-life under the supervision of our long-term residents and participate in the daily tasks 5 hours a day from Monday to Friday (there may be times when you are requested to work Saturdays in lieu of another day off). In exchange all your meals will be provided (the community shares in the preparation, cooking and cleaning up), you will have your own campsite for your tent (we have some extra if needed) and you will have access to our indoor and outdoor kitchens, bathhouse, laundry and living spaces. There is also a farm computer at your disposal with internet access, plug-in capabilities. However, we are a WiFi Free zone.

Our Salt Spring Island organic (non-certified) farm sits on a beautiful 53 acres property comprised of pristine forest and fertile arable lands. We are located across the road from the ocean and walking distance from the quaint Village of Fulford where you will find the ferry, a convenient store, restaurants, a liquor store, etc. The bus line #2 connecting to Ganges is easily accessible down the road.

We request that visitors be willing to offer the farm a minimum 1 month commitment.

Please, no cigarette smokers and no pets without prior approval. At this time our kitchens are not yet suited to accommodate those individuals with severely restrictive diets.

Experience in farming and/or carpentry as an asset.

If this excites you or you have any questions, please get in touch with us!
