We are a senior couple who live on a small organic hobby farm where we raise poultry and cows for meat and eggs and enjoy the occasional help of helpx visitors who join us for approximately two weeks at a time. The vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry patches provide produce for meals which our helpers eat with us. There are two basement bedrooms for single or double occupancy and wifi is available. Work consists of general farm maintenance, care of animals and help in the gardens. Work hours are flexible so helpers have an opportunity to take advantage of the many hiking trails, beaches and the beauty of our island. There is a variety of entertainment at the local community center, two pubs and two small shopping centers. Our farm is 5 kilometers away from stores and the ferry to the town of Campbell River. We enjoy having our helpers from various lifestyles join us and deeply appreciate the help they give us.

We are a couple with a four year old daughter and a two year old son. We have an acre waterfront lot on beautiful Bowen Island. We are looking for a non-smoking, outdoor loving, single female that has some childcare experience and basic English language skills. The work is mainly house cleaning, gardening and childcare. We typically accept someone for two-three week stays but if it is a really great fit we are always open to longer. You will have two days off a week and will be included in all our family activities if you choose to be. I also encourage you to go explore on your own too around the island and into the city on your days off. In the evenings we all come together for dinner and conversation.

November is our storm season, but that is also when our surfing picks up, so if you're looking to hit the waves on your time off, fall is the time to come :)

I am a full-time artist and my husband is retired. Our lake-front home is in a remote location on Quadra Island with occasional artists visiting or helping with production in the studio. We would like to host a tidy, non-smoker in our home, to help in the studio, with housework and perhaps in the yard. We can only accommodate one person at a time. The studio help requires attention to detail and may involve help with framing, assembling gift cards, or preparing canvases and etching plates. Help with preparation for and perhaps participation in the summer and fall art shows may be needed. Computer skills would be useful with my database and newsletter.
My husband can always use help with the endless yard and house projects and the firewood, but the housework (cleaning) and studio help is our primary need. My website (see link above) can provide more information. A two week minimum stay is required. We have a kayak, and a canoe and an indoor small swimming pool. My studio hou... more inside
