It is winter and I have been bringing sawlogs home to mill the timbers to complete the building of a Timber-Frame greenhouse and carport. I could really use the assistance of anybody who is interested in learning how to saw logs and build.

We are two families on one aspiring farm, with 5 kids ages 9 months to 6 yrs, and their adults and pets. We are getting ready for chickens, expanding our gardens, and preparing to reopen our holiday rentals.

Our kids are at an age of exploring and learning, and would love to take an adult friend to the beaches and trails for adventures and fun, and to sit cosy reading and making art. We also can use help building infrastructure, landscaping and gardening, wherever your expertise and preferences lie. Our 7 acre property has a large garden, orchard and pond, with tonnes of potential for more!

We have two friendly dogs, 2 cats, and plenty of wildlife in the surrounding forests.
Our property is in the "busy" south end of our little island of 900 residents, within walking distance of numerous beautiful beaches, the local "downtown", and Hollyhock retreat centre.

We are a small family living on a sweet, 5 acre piece of land with a nice mix of forest and open areas, and with a few other people.

I run a home based small business making custom artisan footwear, but the help I need is mostly on the land and in gardens.

We expect 5 hrs of work, 5-6 days a week in exchange for quality food and a place to stay, as well as an excellent learning opportunity with a rare craft.
* Other modified arrangements can also be discussed and customized to work for all. For example, less days of work and less meals or no meals, etc.

We have traveled in the past and enjoy connecting with people, both local and from abroad. We like to share food, have fires and play music, and strive to enjoy the work we do, do it well, and have a good time working together.

The ocean and a warm lake are biking or walking distance from our home. There are forest trails nearby, and the town center is 10 min. by car.

Our farm is located on 25 acres of ocean front property surrounded by beautiful Haida Gwaii forest. We are learning about self sufficiency and try to grow and make as much as we can since being on a remote island food security is a high priority. Currently we have goats, chickens, ducks and are feeding a baby deer. In the fall we pick a lot of wild berries (salal) for jelly and wine.

Come and enjoy Salt Spring Island. I have 0.75 acres within walking distance to Ganges. I've been away in Victoria for 4 years so my front gardens are overgrown and the 1/2 acre that used to be horse pasture (when I had horses) is now a blackberry farm - all ready for picking.

I want to rehab my front gardens and prune as required. I will have apples and figs to pick plus blackberries.

I also want to reduce the number of blackberry plants I have by digging them up and selling them, leaving the plants only on each side of the fences. I need to check existing fencing and gates and repair as required.

There is also a need front garden maintenance plus some painting and general building upkeep. Ability to use tools would be handy as well as some gardening experience. Muscles are good. Male or female both ok.

I might also need a small hand with my B&B if I do it and if you are coming soon.

Accommodation will be either in the house or the cute out-building + using in-ho... more inside
