We have a large garden and could use some help with maintenance, fencing, installing irrigation, wood cutting, some building projects. We live on beautiful Cortes Island near to Gorge Harbour. Minutes walk to the water. Accommodation will be either in a large tent or in our music studio on the property.
We are not a commercial farm, but rather a homestead we have been developing since 1989. Some of our fences need to be replaced, so that is part of the work we need help with. We also need to replace our berry cage for the raspberries and blueberries to keep the birds out of the patch. Other work may include constructing compost bins, garden weeding and mulching, installing drip irrigation for the garden, and getting wood in the shed for winter.
Cortes Island is a great community and there are lots of things going on in the summer to participate in (music, arts, dance, concerts, etc.), as well as many hikes or walks to nearby beaches, old forests, etc.
We are retired, but still work on the place. Carina and I are both Reiki Masters and Rick is a professional guitarist and musician, and a skilled woodworker. Musical helpers are a bonus for us. We have small boat and enjoy fishing when we get the time. Cortes is a paradise for nature lovers. Come and help us out and check out this special place.
