We are a small family living on a sweet, 5 acre piece of land with a nice mix of forest and open areas, and with a few other people.

I run a home based small business making custom artisan footwear, but the help I need is mostly on the land and in gardens.

We expect 5 hrs of work, 5-6 days a week in exchange for quality food and a place to stay, as well as an excellent learning opportunity with a rare craft.
* Other modified arrangements can also be discussed and customized to work for all. For example, less days of work and less meals or no meals, etc.

We have traveled in the past and enjoy connecting with people, both local and from abroad. We like to share food, have fires and play music, and strive to enjoy the work we do, do it well, and have a good time working together.

The ocean and a warm lake are biking or walking distance from our home. There are forest trails nearby, and the town center is 10 min. by car.

Salt Spring Island is a thriving arts, dance, music and organic farming community, and is a very special place to visit. We look forward to hearing from you and discussing further if this sounds like a good fit for you.
