We live on an 18 acre farm in Metchosin Victoria and we have been hosting travellers for the past 7 years. We love the program and it has been a great experience. To date we have hosted over 40 'kids' and many have come back to visit as friends. We have teenage kids and they enjoy meeting and socializing with our visitors. Our farm is on Taylor Beach and there is tons to do here, especially if you enjoy the outdoors. (Hiking, kayaking, spending time at the beach, beach fires, etc) Work around the property could be caring for animals, maintaining the fields/fences/barn, garden work, and/or cooking.
For 2017 we have a special project in that we bought a lake front house and cabin on Lake Cowichan (45 minutes north of Victoria). We need help with painting, renovating, furnishing, etc. to get the property ready for summer time rentals. So we are hoping for a group of helpers at one time and it should be lots of fun.
We are a very easy going family and in return for room and board we ask that you help us for 4 hours a day. We regularly go into town and are available to give you a ride.

You will have a private bedroom in our home and Wifi is available.
