Greetings world travellers! We are an organic farm with Ducks, Chickens, Bees and an approx 2 acre veggie/herb garden, The 14 acre property backs onto the trans-canada trail and is about a 3-5 minute walk to the prestine Heritage Cowichan River on Vancouver Island, We are a collective of 4 families (2 of which live on site) of artists and permaculture gardeners/herbalists who are looking for extra help in the garden/land maintenance and with the odd random job here and there. It would be very helpful to have someone with woodworking skills on the land. We are looking for 3 hours/day per person 5 days/week in exchange for either tenting accommodation or the option of sleeping in a trailer, either option includes the use of small trailer kitchen and shower in workshop space. Bulk organic grain (rice and or lentils) will be provided as well as access to garden for fresh veggies and some eggs from the chickens weekly! We are looking for a 2-3 week commitment to start, with the potential of a 4 week exchange given the energies align after a couple of weeks. The land is approx a half hour bike ride (on transcanada trail) from lake cowichan or a 7 minute drive. Also about 15 mins from duncan by car. We can offer use of bikes as well :) I (Coco) am fluent in French and Spanish with first language being English. I look forward to hearing from you!
