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,... more inside

We live on one acre of forest in the Western Communities of the Greater Victoria Regional District, "GVRD". My wife and i are in our seventies,and, though still very active we find that we need lots of assistance with our vegetable garden, ornamental garden, forest management and general maintenance. We have a very comfortable home offering private rooms and bathroom.
We have many years experience accommodating foreign students, travelers, and guest workers, and so have many references that we can provide to applicants.

More last minute helpers needed! Some pay is possible especially for a person with carpentry or plumbing experience. For qualified carpenters or mechanics, we also pay extra for basic hours. We also can often take a last minute person if you need a place quick!

*** PLEASE READ OUR AD CAREFULLY, AS WE DON`T WANT YOU TO BE UNHAPPY HERE AS IT MAKES US UNHAPPY AS WELL. We have had 1 negative experience on this site with someone that greatly exaggerated, but have wonderful experiences with most helpers & have made (& sometimes visited) many new friends! Only people that ignore what we ask for in our ad are unhappy, as it is frustrating for us & then for them. We know what works for us as we have had many people here & take several at a time. We host with many sites & also since 1988. Most helpers don't have ANY references so we rely on your word that you fit our requirements.
Life is too short for anyone to be stressed out!

There are lots of exotic birds hatching now ... more inside
