We are a family of four on a lovely hobby farm just outside of Victoria with 25 chickens, fruit trees and a developing garden.

The two adults of the family are both health care professionals - one of whom has a home based practice. Our daughter is 12 and our son is 9 and both attend school. We have a very active and busy schedule (swimmIng, biking, music, soccer etc.) and are looking to connect with people for some help with the property and to share our home for periods of 2-4 weeks at a time (longer periods may be considered).

Helpers should be comfortable with larger dogs- we have one who likes to visit with people.

Home considerations:

A couple pictures of the room accomodation are posted. It has one double bed- an extra camping foamy is available.

WiFi is available. Phones for local calls only.

Absolutely no smoking/vaping of anything on property (including outside)

Travel: The nearest bus is about a 15 minute walk to Camosun College o... more inside

Hello\Bonjour! My husband and I (late 40's) came to Vancouver Island about a year ago from the mainland and we are LOVING this area!
Aside from farming and working at our jobs, we enjoy the nearby hikes, swimming in the rivers and ocean and doing winter sports up at Mt Washington. This area has so much to offer for nature lovers plus the town of Courtenay is just 15 minutes away for all your shopping and entertainment needs! We are a new developing farm in the Merville area focusing on growing organic vegetables and fruits (non certified) as well as herbs and flowers. We also keep a small flock of sheep for meat and wool as well as some egg layers and meat birds (future). We would love to share our experience with somebody who is passionate about farming, has a positive growth mindset and who wants to learn and contribute to our small operation. Work varies daily so you can learn the many different aspects of farming. We would be happy with a few hours of help most days b... more inside
