We are a small, family run apple tree nursery on 5 acres. We specialise in over 150 varieties of heritage and cider apples. We are looking for a helper for 6 weeks from mid-June to end of July.
We would offer training in how graft and propagate apples, plums and pears, how to start an orchard and how to care for fruit trees at all life stages.
Accommodation would will be an independent dwelling onsite, and the helper is responsible for making their own meals, though we will share meals occasionally.
We are looking for a helper with experience in horticulture. You should be hardworking and reliable, with an excellent grasp of English, and comfortable working alongside our family team.
We are passionate about what we do and hope to share that with others and with our helper. Feel free to check out our website denmanapple.ca for some pictures and more details.

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

Welcome!
We share a beautiful lakeside home & garden on the north east side of Quadra Island. We grow food, flowers, native plants, fruit trees on a large forested property. We have also been doing small-scale mushroom growing for a few years and are expanding this project in the woods, with ongoing shitake logs, also now some reishi, chicken-of-the-woods, and more.

We keep very busy with the garden during summer and shoulder season, but move out of our house during peak vacation rental season, so we don't have accommodation during July and August.

We can use help in the garden, on forest trails, rural driveway maintenance, a few alternative building projects, and the big spring job of prepping the house for vacation rentals (cleaning, repair). Best to get in touch with us to share your interests and skills, as projects vary widely with the season, weather, and our own work. We have an easy-going but busy schedule, make and share great meals with friends and family and... more inside
