Wow, exploring right outside our backdoor along side the Campbell River is a beautiful place to experience FALL and Vancouver Island`s great outdoors!!! Although we live on a one acre town lot, our back yard is situated on a cliff over looking an accessible beautiful heritage river, with a nature park setting of ferns, douglas firs, maples and alder trees. You can often see deer, racoons, bears and the silver backs of salmon and Steelhead fish jumping in the ebb and flow of the riverís pools. We have trail access to the river below, where you can enjoy listening to the sing song of many birds, tubing down the river/swimming in the heat of the summer, and trying your hand at casting for Steelhead fish. As well, our neighbourhood is the access point to many scenic nature walking and biking trails. The 1st three photos are at our home and the others are nearby nearby trails and local vistas.

If you have a specific trade or skill to exchange we can find you a suitable project. Otherw... more inside

Hello and Welcome to our Farm! We are people of integrity trying to live our lives with purpose, meaning and love. We have an enchanting 14 Acre Farm that we are trying to turn into more of a Healing Haven then it already is.

Covid19 coronavirus update: We are still accepting Helpers! However please note that:
- We can only accept if you can describe how you have been taking care and following recommended practices over the last few weeks.
- We only go grocer shopping every two weeks. You can expect to eat humbly and be able to cook healthy meals with wholesome ingredients - we have abundant food, but it is not fast or packaged food - we will be eating nearly 100% food from scratch which means lots of legumes and garden veggies!
- we prioritize helpers who are keen to spend safe and positive time with children (along with many other diverse land-based and home-based tasks).

Join us and feel the healing of the land on 100 acres. Be part of a bustling dynamic farm family, eat healthy food, and work a variety of home and farm tasks. We live on a gorgeous farm with forest, field, creek, garden, eagles nesting, salmon spawning, a chorus of frogs, big trees, gorgeous views and wide open skies.
We grow... more inside
