We are seeking enthusiastic non-smoking, self-motivated people interested in helping us grow, harvest, and expand our farm and orchard.

We prefer to host for periods of two weeks at a time. The work expectation for you would be six (6) hours per day, five (5) days per week, with two (2) days off per week for you to enjoy exploring our beautiful Island.

Our home is an active place with a busy 8 year old boy who loves to meet, talk & play with new visitors. Breakfast is prepared on your own and we typically prepare the lunch & dinners with your assistance in clean up. We are open to your culinary expertise as well!

We welcome up to two people at a time in our 130 sq ft cottage equipped with a queen size bed (with heat, electricity, fridge, kettle, hot plate & TV/DVD/VHS for movies).

Our property is 5 acres which contains organic gardens; vegetables, berries, garlic, herbs, perennial gardens, an orchard (fruit & nut trees). Working with us will include: pruning, composting, weeding, planting, harvesting, preserving and general property maintenance.

We are situated on Gabriola Island B.C., - a beautiful location a 5 - 10 minute walk to Silva Bay Marina on the South end of our Island; a 5 minute drive (30 minute walk) to a Provincial Park on the ocean. To see additional information about our Island, see Gabriola Island is a 20 minute ferry ride from the City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Our little Island, the size of Manhattan, with just over 4000 people on it has a Community Bus service to get you around the Island touring.

We hope to hear from you. If you have questions about our property or us, please just ask and start a conversation. Communication is the best way to find out if we are a fit for each other!
