We have a need for Earthship builders, permaculture garden & kitchen helpers. No experience is necessary; however natural building, construction skills are preferred. A passion for natural building and/or gardening and/or cooking is desirable. In 2019 we will be finishing the tire walls, the greenhouse structure, and roof.

We are in Lighthouse Country, a small rural area on Vancouver Island about 6 kilometers from Bowser town center. Close by are a grocery store, banking, real estate office, massage, doctor, yoga, Salish Sea gift shop, coffee shop and a variety of retailers. A summer farmer’s market is held here.

We are off grid and very rustic. If you love the outdoors, you will love this. A place to pitch your tent, or park your RV (no hookups) on the edge of the forest. We have an outdoor solar shower – very cute – but if you want real running hot water, a quick bike ride to the local campground and for a buck or two you can have a hot shower! Our outhouse is not smelly and we use real toilet paper – not old magazines and phone books.

Meals are prepared and served in the Bear Paw Cafe - named for last summer’s early morning guests (2 black bears) our compact outdoor kitchen includes a stove, fridge, cook top, double sinks, cutlery, dishes, pots n pans and all the basic equipment to cook or serve a meal. It is stocked with all the basics for breakfast – guests get themselves up and organized for the day’s start. We serve a healthy and nutritious lunch and dinner.

The kitchen is kept clean and tidy. Dishes and kitchen clean up is the responsibility of all.

Saturday and Sunday you are on your own, help yourself to leftovers in the fridge, pack a lunch, take a buddy or two (or more) and find something to do. There are occasionally special Sunday dinners... we’ll make sure you know in advance!
