Helpers Needed Summer and Fall 2020!

It is Summer and I have sawlogs here at home to mill the timbers to complete the building of a Timber-Frame greenhouse and carport. I could really use the assistance of anybody who is interested in learning how to saw logs and build.
I have both gardening and silviculture jobs such as pruning and brushing both here on the home property but also on the Woodlot. I am looking for Helpers who are keen to learn new skills and desire to experience coastal life in British Columbia. Quadra Island is a wonderful location for finding the "Island Life", we are a friendly community and welcome visitors. We have a well developed hiking and mtn. biking trail system as well many first class Parks. Salmon and fresh water fishing for trout and digging clams and picking oysters off of the beaches are favourite activities.

This farm includes the 10 ha of forested Woodlot with gardens, fruit trees, berries, milk cow, calf, heifer, chickens and ducks with a ... more inside

***Update September 2020: We are looking for a strong volunteer to help with some building projects this fall e.g. working with us to repair our barns and building some shelters. Other work could include harvesting and canning fruit and veggies, milking and making cheese, taking care of animals, and preparing the farm for winter. We do require 2 weeks of quarantine when you arrive due to COVID-19 and this is easily achieved with helper accommodation being separate from our house.***

Four years ago we left our urban life with our two kids and set forth on a journey across North America, volunteering on farms and learning about how to live differently on the earth.

Our journey brought us to Quadra Island where we purchased an old farm and are in the middle of converting it into a regenerative and thriving farmstead using permaculture, silvipasture, animal systems, compost, food forests...and lots of other awesome things! We think that animals are a very important part of crea... more inside

CURRENT ACTIVITIES: starting a new orchard, harvest, weeding, firewood, prep for winter :)

Perfect retreat space! (Couples welcome)

This is the ideal situation for someone who wants time and space for meditation, quiet reflection, walks in nature, working on your writing or artwork, and such.

Denman Island is a wonderfully quiet, sunny, nature-drenched place to spend a summer! (http://www.denmanisland.com has tons of info about the island.)

From our beautiful 16+ acre maple, cedar, and fir tree forest, you can hike the trails all the way to the park at the southern tip of the Island to look out over the lighthouse islet, see eagles nesting below you, and watch for seals and sea lions swimming. Or canoe on our adjacent wildlife marsh. If you prefer being at the ocean, quiet ocean beaches are about a half-hour walk away, down country lanes.

Here you can enjoy plenty of tranquil beauty and fresh, healing air! If you like trees, birds and... more inside

SUMMER 2020 - not accepting any helpers right now. Stay safe and well.

We are a family run farm and bakery on beautiful Salt Spring Island. We have a store that is open every day on our farm, with many customers visiting it. All of our own products, (meat, baked goods, veggies, fruit, wool products etc), as well as products from other islanders are sold in our store. We also attend a farmers market once a week. Help needed with, but not limited to: picking, planting, weeding, market prep, market selling, cleaning, washing vegetables and so on. The farm has a really fun atmosphere with lots of fun young people working on it, who love to have a good time after the work day is done.
We are looking for Helpers now until the end of September. Preferably helpers would be staying longer than 2 weeks, so they can get the hang of things.

We are open for helpers from March - September
