Our 12 acre (4 hectare) property overlooks the Salish Sea and the Coast Mountains. Our tiered gardens of flowers, herbs, and vegetables, are nestled in the bluffs. We are developing a berry and fruit garden, putting up more deer fencing, building a greenhouse, and landscaping and path developing with the natural vegetation: ferns, salal, ocean spray, huckleberry, wild current and elderberry in addition to rhodos and other perennial bushes. Accommodations consist of a private basement suite that includes one queen size bed, an en suite with shower, private entrance and a ocean mountain view. Check out our website. We are a 5 minute walk to a swimming beach. We encourage wwoofers to take advantage of local kayaking, hiking, fishing, and biking opportunities on days off. Chores include gardening, brush clearing and pruning, rock wall and fence building, and chopping/stacking firewood. We offer shared meals and use of kitchen. Our volunteers usually work outside for 4 to 5 hours a day, 5 days a week and help with dinner prep or cleanup everyday. We can accept a couple or a single person at one time. Volunteers are welcome year round. We are currently working on building new raised gardens and making cedar shakes for replacing part of our roof. No smokers/drugs.
We are currently looking for helpers for May, June, and September.
