Organic garden, greenhouse, homestead farm near Masset, on Haida Gwaii. (Northern BC).
A good garden and I also have a pottery studio. I don't have goats at the moment.
I can host someone for sure mid to end of October if that timing works out for you.
Surrounding area includes beautiful old-growth rainforest 3min walk, ocean 10min walk, berry picking, great community.
Focus is on eating local, seasonal and stored vegetables, local meat (fresh and canned): salmon, deer, seafood...
Seeking help with carpentry / firewood / odd jobs / potato harvest.
Work days are usually 5 hours with the rest of the day to explore the area. Days are flexible with the weather, which is always changing here, some days longer, some shorter, with a few days off in there of course.
- solo travellers or couples welcome, no children though.
- I can't accommodate vegans or pure vegetarians,
- please state any specific dietary concerns you might have in your emails
- tenting on the property, (two person tent and thermarests available),
- an old bus, which has a small woodstove and one electric light.
things we might be working on together:
harvesting food / digging potatoes or garlic / getting seaweed from the beach / working the compost pile / picking and weeding / strawberries to process or sell / gardening / planting / weeding/ feeding rhubarb plants / firewood...

Easy access to surrounding attractions which include Tow hill, North Beach, Haida art and Totems in Old Massett, unusual bogs, hiking trails, fishing, crabbing, a great new Haida art museum (in Skidegate), beachcombing and miles of beach to yourself (or almost). In the fall there s salmon running and wild mushrooms. There's also a bike to use.
I m interested in music, people and languages from other parts of the world. I m fluent in french and english

I'm also a graphic designer and there's always more for me to learn in this field, I could use bits of help to doodle with Wordpress if you know it too,
Looking forward to hear from you,
