Our family lives on a beautiful piece of farmland with an orchard,large vegetable garden and greenhouse, dairy goats, sheep, turkeys and chickens. This year we are expanding our production and starting a new produce business. During the months of February through April, we need help with pruning fruit trees, working in the greenhouse and construction projects. If you are skilled with any of these things, wonderful! if not, we can help you learn. As a working farm we require physical labour, often involving dirt or animal manure. Our expectations of helpers include maturity, good mental and physical health and a good work ethic. We value problem solving, creative thinking skills,initiative, and independence. We appreciate helpers who can manage their own time and projects.
Our Quadra Island property is a 15 minute walk from Rebecca Spit provincial park, close to Heriot Bay and some great trails. Quadra is a beautiful place with a wide variety of marine and wild life. If you like to fish, dive, kayak, mountain bike or hike, this is the place for you! Our lifestyle is fairly simple, easygoing and eco conscious, we are a meat eating household but have frequent vegetarian meals. We produce our own dairy,meat and eggs as well as many of our fruits and vegetables. Groceries are provided to make your own breakfast and lunch, and dinner is generally eaten with our family, unless you prefer to do your own thing.
Accommodation is in a private room in our home with a queen size bed. If you are looking for more privacy, we have a funky older camper with a fridge, stove and double bed. It works best for us if helpers plan a stay of between 1-2 weeks, and to communicate openly with how things are going. You may notice a nasty review below; please read the others for a more accurate description of what we are about.
No drama, addictions or recreational drugs please.
