Thanks to all our helpers in 2019. For 2020, we'd love some springtime help in April for outside projects....eg. gardening, yardwork, fence building. After 4 hours of help in the morning, you have the rest of the day free to play....bike, hike, climb, explore, relax. Driver's license would be helpful. WiFi, bikes, relaxed atmosphere.

Quadra Island is a small piece of paradise; see our previous helpers’ comments. If you are interested in experiencing some laid-back island living, please get in touch and we can discuss more details. We look forward to hearing from you! Thanks!

The age of fossil fuel powered industrial civilization is rapidly coming to an end.

What comes next is up to us.

In these uncertain times, developing self sufficient and resilient communities through ecological and cultural regeneration, and helping each other along the way, are the most important things we feel we can do.

Guided by the concepts of Permaculture design, regenerative agriculture, 8 Shields and Buddhism, we are developing a wilderness homestead, regenerative farm, intentional community, and education center for life in the post industrial era.

Our community is comprised of a core group of extended family members and a widening circle of friends, colleagues, team members and volunteers.

We share a vision of living in balance with the earth, in harmony with each other, and at peace within ourselves.

We are drawn to the teachings of the Buddha, and aspire to live in accordance with this philosophy. We value spiritual exploration, and the journey ... more inside

Not Accepting New Helpers At The Moment. Thanks


Hello Helpers,

We are a retired couple recently moved to Quadra Island which is a short ferry ride from Campbell River, and are in the process of creating a serene oasis on our 3 acre property. We would like to invite motivated, engaging, happy helpers to give us a hand with all manner of manual labour.i.e. preparing the land for a veggie garden and improving what is here already.

Being "morning" people, we prefer helpers who greet the day with good humor and positive energy.

We request 25 hr per week in the mornings. Lunch is eaten together, leaving afternoons free for exploring our trails, lakes, beaches, climbing rocks and quaint village. We provide food for breakfast and supper and it's casual so you can eat when you it suits you.
We also have kayaks and a canoe you are welcome to use. If you wish to stay on the property, hang out on the dock, and watch marine life, (seals, otters, porpoise, mink and tons of bird l... more inside

We are a family of four with two super cute young girls aged two and four. We live on a little property that requires a fair amount of maintenance as it is in the growing stages. We have about 25 fruit trees that we recently planted, two vegetable and berry gardens, and quite a number of flower beds and a big swimming pond which require a bit of maintenance. There is also a large area of lawn that needs occasional mowing. If there is a special somebody interested in having an incredible experience in a fantastic location on Vancouver Island for a few weeks, we would be thrilled to host you! Your responsibilities would include gardening, weeding, fruit harvesting, algae removal, and care of our two children if everybody feels like you are a good fit! Hours of work would probably be 2-4 hours per day, 4 to 5 days a week, perhaps for several weeks? This could be negotiated. You would have your own room and a bathroom that others use only occasionally. The home is beautiful and close to... more inside

Come experience life off-grid!

Lasqueti Island is a unique off-grid island with passenger only ferry service and hundreds of feral sheep. It`s a pretty fantastic place, with a great community of rugged, quirky characters and beautiful mossy forests, rocky bluffs, beaches and wetlands for you to explore in your time off, plus (depending on the season and how long you stay), there is the option of going to dance and yoga classes and/or the community sauna 2x/week, plus various fun seasonal community events like ArtsFest, Firefighters Picnic and the Fall Fair. June-September there is a weekly market on Saturdays. We`ve also got lots of great books on hand. The property has a pond (great for swimming in warmer weather) and backs on to public land you can hike through down to the ocean. The island has some of the largest tracts of remaining mature coastal Douglas fir forest and we see deer and feral sheep, (harmless, small) snakes, frogs and toads, eagles, ravens and lots of other ... more inside

Hi, I'm Emma and my husband is Rob. I'm originally from Wales Uk and started my little farm a couple of years ago. I'm slowly but surely growing and developing.
We raise sheep, Pig's, chickens, quail and rabbits. We hope to also develop into produce.
Duties will include animal care and maintainence, fencing, building and general labour. We are very small so these duties are not overly extensive daily hours may vary but will be under 5 hours a day in exchange for food and accommodation.
Although remote this is a wonderful location on a tiny island called alert bay, surrounded by ocean, mountain views and spectacular beauty and amazing wildlife such as whales, sea lions, seal, dolphins, porpoises etc. It is a unique and friendly community with rich history and cultural heritage. If you are looking for wild evenings and bustling city life then this is not the right place. If you love the outdoors, animals and nature then it's paradise.
Kayaking, whale watching, fishing, hiking ... more inside
