We are currently inviting a couple for up to 4 weeks to help from mid April to mid May 2019. Five minutes walk from the beach, our 3-acre sunny property is located on a southwest facing slope in a quiet rural setting with views all round of mountains and ocean. Principal activities will include summer garden maintenance: weeding, clearing small trees and undergrowth, composting, mowing and house maintenance: deck, gutter and window cleaning. We may also be building a new greenhouse and a new footbridge over a creek, so we will welcome helpers with carpentry and construction skills. Healthy, varied and delicious food is a must in our house, non-vegetarian but always with a lot of vegetables, fruit and home-baked bread. Helpers will have their own bedroom and bathroom, attached to our house.

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

We are doing some minor repairs as well as gardening on our SW Florida home. Basic carpentry and gardening skills - few hours of work per day with remainder allowing you time to explore this wonderful tropical destination. Additional assistance needed with inventory and moving of rare book collection. Home has swimming pool and fully equipped kitchen you are of course welcome to utilize. Small dog on site. We would prefer an older couple with some related experience, though will consider all applicants. Would ideally like a minimum of two week stay, longer even better. Look forward to hearing from you (and in attempting to change our listing to reflect that we are in USA not Canada!) Peace for ALL Species.

We are a mixed farm. We grow strawberries, raspberries, greenhouse tomatoes and melons, hay, salad mix and assorted veggies. We also have sheep and horses. You can check out our pictures on Facebook or northendfarm.ca. We go to two markets per week and have a small store on the farm. The property is ocean front which can make for some nice walks or dips in the cold water! We have dogs, cats and would therefore not be suitable for someone with allergies.
