We live in an island home on Read Island. BC. There is an ocean view and we live in a beautiful conifer forest. We have a small yoga and meditation retreat that can host up to 8 people.
We grow most of our summer food in a small organic garden with berry bushes. We supplement our local diet with seafood oysters and clams. We pick wild berries to make our own organic wines. We are off the grid and the house is powered by solar panels and a small generator. We have internet and wifi and cell phone reception.
We travel to our house by our own boat. We have kayaks and good hiking around this beautiful coastal island.
My husband Rieko and I are both yoga teachers. We also teach and do massages for a living.
We look forward to having helpx travellers come to stay with us and enjoy our home.

We have a busy little homestead with two small homes and a sleeping cabin, platform tent, outhouse and a summer kitchen in the works. We also have a garden that is in its first year, forest, wood piles, weeds, compost. And we have two kids, two kittens, and a dog. There are lots of projects that need help: weeds to pull, gardens to maintain, things to build, or help to offer in the home. We live on a glorious rock beach with bald eagles, seals, and vultures. We have kayaks, canoe, bicycles, and trail maps to use. We'd like a few hours of help a day in return for basic accommodation and one meal a day. Lots of time for enjoying the beauty of the place built in!

We are part of a cooperatively-owned aspiring eco-village, based on the ethics and principles of Permaculture, compassionate communication, and shared values.

Our new 43 acre site includes large, irrigated fields, two spring-fed streams, riparian areas, and young forest, adjacent to 60 acres of community farmland with a 2 acre pond, and backed by hundreds of acres of wild public parkland, extending to the highest point on the island.

In 2012, we will be working on a large propagation greenhouse, market gardens, medicinal herb starts, garlic, pears and apples, as well as chickens and dairy goats. Other projects for those with appropriate skills include water management, fencing, bio-diesel, construction, and helping with our educational events, such as Permaculture classes and workshops.

The village of Ganges, which has all the amenities needed by a community of 10,000, is 10km away, reachable via thumb, public bus, or a hilly bike ride. The ocean is 3km away, and hiking sta... more inside

We have a small family hobby farm on a small ferry accessed island which is a tourist destination off of Vancouver Island, Quadra Island. We are working toward producing much of our own food, or trading/buying it locally, and are in the process of setting up our permaculture based garden. We have five dairy goats, egg and meat chickens, ducks and three free-range children (4, 6, 7).

Quadra Island has a network of mountain biking and hiking trails, many miles of beautiful coastline, and a wonderful artist and music community. Our farm is located relatively close (3km) to both small towns on the island, where hitchhiking is quite easy and accepted.

This summer's main farm projects include the usual goat, chicken and duck care, processing meat birds, vegetable gardening, but also finishing a cabin and outdoor kitchen, and expanding electric fencing. Home projects would include help with children, fixing bicycles, help with household chores and mealtime. Other projects may be inc... more inside
