We live on a couple of acres of beautiful mostly-forested land in the Comox Valley. Depending on the timing, comfortable accommodation may be available in a cabin on the property, or in screened gazebos tucked into a corner of the garden or forest....

Looking for people interested in sharing good food and helping out with a range of different projects, including:

- constructing a small bath house for guests,
- watering plants in the garden,
- creating a rockery along the edge of a stream bed,
- making compost and compost "teas",
- harvesting berries and tomatoes,
- re-visioning & reorganizing the woodworking shop, and
- stacking firewood.

As well as being the primary caretaker of the garden and the land, I have a background in community development - here in Canada and in northeast India. Love preparing Indian food, and sharing info about traditional Vedic farming practices farmers and tea growers we've been working with in Assam are now using!

Best fit would be with creative and open-minded people looking for a restorative, peaceful place to stay for a few days - or maybe a couple of weeks. The Tsolum River is across the road and there are lots of shady walking and bike-riding trails nearby.

If this sounds like it'd be a good fit, we'd be happy to hear from you!
