We are a small family with a relatively undeveloped piece of land, on it we operate a wholesale nursery but are looking for help on the personal farm side of things. We have a large garden, fruit trees, lavender and bee hives. We are centrally located, just 2 hour drive from Victoria or Tofino, and only thirty minutes from the ferry to Vancouver. We are only a 15 minute drive from lakes, rivers, and the Salish sea.
We love to cook and eat. We believe food brings people together.
We do a lot of our own preserving, fermenting, and processing of food grown on the property. We can always use extra hands. We also have 2 large dogs and 2 cats who love extra attention.
We are currently interested in someone with construction experience for small maintenance jobs.
We expect 4-5 hours a day 5 days a week, maximum 2 week stay. Tasks may include but are not limited to; weeding, building garden beds, rock picking, rebuilding a small roof, garden maintenance, and some household chores including cooking and cleaning. Accommodations are in a open concept separate building, with own kitchenette (no stove top). Camping is also available if desired. Free wi-fi during stay.

We will provide 2 meals a day (breakfast and dinner) and a bike for getting around.
We prefer work to be done in morning. Have afternoons off, then after dinner help us with dinner and clean up. We would also prefer couples, pairs or singles who work well independently.
