We are the second generation to farm this property and we are struggling to get a leg up. We have four kids, as well as chickens, sheep and a few ducks. Our livestock dogs, Whiskey and Rosy are keen to spend some time with one or two helpers who are able to help out with odd jobs such as:
digging fence post holes
stacking firewood
helping with the animals
helping with some roofing
generally lend a hand where your talents and interests lay.

We live in a fantastic place and we will enjoy helping you out to see as much as is possible of the Island. Our location is a bike ride to town, but we are just a 8 minute drive there too. Tofino and Victoria are not far away, as are Nanaimo and Courtenay. Goats on the Roof, Butterfly World and a Buddist Temple are not far away and you will enjoy the quirkiness of this region.

The accommodation that we can provide is a comfortable cabin with a bathroom, no hot water. Your view is of the mountains and fields with a double bed, a table for four, and a bathroom. Your meals would be with our family, but you would have your privacy, and wifi. If you have a child or two, we might be able to accommodate them with you in the cabin.

We would love to have your help and company, but I am limited in my vegetarian meals, so please keep that in mind. We definitely do not smoke, but a beer or glass/mug of wine does not go amiss.

You can contact me through Messenger under Joanne Menninga. My id photo is a tulip.

We have just had our first volunteer worker and he is amazing and we are loving the relationship that we are building. Our kids are enjoying learning about a new culture and we get to show off our Island, which we love!! So, if you are on the Island during this time, and you want a place to rest your heads for a month or so, feel free to contact us and we can talk.
