** Booked up until mid-April.

We (Tayler & Solara) run an edible landscaping & ecological design business in Victoria, BC. We teach permaculture courses, design & build edible gardens and manage regenerative landscape projects.

Our headquarters is a home-based backyard, permaculture-inspired garden in Vic West, less than 10 minutes biking from downtown. We also have a 3 year old daughter who loves to play in the garden and at the parks nearby. We have just moved in and are renovating the edible gardens.

While we do have a business, the focus of the volunteer exchange will be non-commercial, mostly helping in our home food gardens and playing with our 3-year old daughter.

Maximum 1 week stay for winter months.

We are looking for someone who:

- loves children and is happy to play with and look after our 3 year old daughter (there are many parks within walking distance)
- is willing to contribute to meals and cleanup (shared responsibility)
- enjoys edible gardening and nursery work (weeding, planting, mulching, seeding, setting up cloches, etc..)
- can help with duties related to urban chickens (we'll be getting some in late February/March and will be getting the coop ready in February).

We offer:
Private room and bathroom in 2 story house that doubles as our office. We may request access to the office occasionally between 9am and 5pm, but mostly we work offsite

We are 15 minutes walking to downtown Victoria, 5 minutes biking. We can lend a bike when we're not using it and point you in the direction of many urban agriculture and permaculture sites in and around Victoria, some of which we've been involved in.

Let us know if you think you are a good fit!

- Tayler
