We are looking for one person or a couple to help on our farm.
We are a family of 3, living on a rural acreage with a small flock of dual purpose sheep, a pony, a dog and a cat. We always seem to have lots to do here and could really appreciate some help. We live about 30 minutes by car from the nearest store, inn and post office. It is a five minute walk to various lovely west coast beaches and a 10 minute drive to a cluster of beautiful inland lakes, that are fresh and good for boating (kayak,canoe) and swimming. It is very quiet here except for the occasional wolf howl or barred owl hoot. Of course, there are lots of birds, newts, frogs and other creatures that share our space, so you would enjoy being here if you are interested in nature. We live near a stand of first growth fir trees. There are good hiking trails and island beaches.
We are in the process of finishing an addition onto our house and are at the shingling stage, and are also building raised beds, a green hous... more inside

Hi, we are a family of 4. We have a 6 year old daughter and a 4 year old son. My husband is in the Navy, so he is often away. I could use an extra set of hands around the house for some household duties and help with the kids. I also run a small in home daycare with 3-4 extra kids.

Our dream is to buy acreage and start a small hobby farm. we live a healthy, active lifestyle, spend lots of time outside and enjoy doing outdoor activities together as a family. We also have a large, but very friendly dog, Stella.

We are a small family looking for help on our farm. Both out and indoors, doing firewood, post holes and fencing, prepping the spring garden,pruning, animal care and some building. Carpentry skills would be an asset. Indoors may include painting and housekeeping. We live in beautiful place on Quadra Island with beaches and lakes nearby surrounded by woods and quiet. A good place for bird watching, painting, photography and observing nature. There is good hiking, diving spots, kayaking and swimming or just relaxing at the local beach. We offer a cozy but small studio separate from our house, for helpers to stay in. We are looking for help for the duration of 2 weeks.

Aloha,
This will be our 3rd season farming and on Salt Spring Island, and we are really looking forward to this year! We've learned so much in the last 2 years and are very excited about another season!
Although we are still in the beginning stages of our project we already have a large garden and permaculture forest under construction. Our young family includes my partner Greg, our son Bodhi (3.5 years) and Satya (2 year). We are creating an amazing community farm and would love some people to come be a part of it - to create this with us! This is a great project for people who want to experience the early stages of a permaculture operation with some great existing farm structures to make life comfortable.
Salt Spring Island is a model community with it's many small farms and mostly home-based businesses service the island completely. Since we've arrived it has exceeded our expecations with regards to community, and feeling welcomed into a new home.
We look forward to meeting... more inside
