We are a 5 acre permaculture based family farm located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley. We practice organic principles with our animals and produce.
We have many Exciting Projects on the go!
some of which may include ...

natural building including cob and lime plaster (we live in a cob home, this depends on weather and season), seed starting, plant propagation,food forest design and planting, hugelkultur bed building, weekly market prep, gardening, beekeeping, animal husbandry jobs (we have a milking jersey cow, nubian milk goats, 2 horses, bees, chickens for meat and eggs), solar drying, cheese making and preserving harvest. Person must be excellent with children, we have 6 friendly and energetic homeschooled children! Cooking for our family is quite the undertaking so we welcome anyone who loves to cook or play with children while I cook as well. We offer you a small trailer (sleeps 2 comfortably) and composting toilet, wifi, laundry as well as access to garden produce when available, some shared meals and a space to grow your own food.. As well as lots of training and knowledge sharing, we have our permaculture design certificate and extensive natural building experience. Located close to Duncan (a few km) and half an hour south of Nanaimo. We are a busy working farm so love people who can jump right in and join along so knowledge in animals / children / permaculture is a bonus! We are hoping to line up some helpers for our big garlic planting project in Sept/October :)
