Wanted: Helper on various outdoor projects
Type: volunteer/unpaid but with private accom., shared meals (see below)
Location: homestead on Salt Spring Island, BC

We have been developing 5 acres on Salt Spring Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada for the last 9 years. We are building new garden areas and improving those that we started over the last 6 years. A lot of the work will be related to digging new areas, planting, mixing soil, etc. We are also in the process of building a greenhouse. We also have a lot of wood to be chopped using a hydraulic wood chopper as well as stacking this firewood.

We eat very healthy with a lot from our gardens. We are mostly vegetarian. We prefer to take in one worker at a time.

We can offer you very comfortable accommodations with internet. You will have your own full bathroom and your private space where you can enjoy your breakfast. We will be pleased to eat our main meals together in our home. Of course all of the food is part of what we have to offer for your help in our projects. Healthy, mostly vegetarian meals are provided for all meals. A lot comes from our gardens. If you have dietary restrictions we can accommodate that as well. 

We are a retired couple and have a lot of energy and plans. No children. 

We live in a very beautiful area near the ocean (5 minutes) and our property is next to one of the best hiking trails on this island. There is a lot to do here on this island and Vancouver is very close and easy to get to. Most workers that have stayed with us have taken the time to visit Vancouver Island including Victoria, Tofino and other areas directly on the Pacific ocean.

Sorry we are not set up to take in couples and we prefer to have young men as most of our projects require considerable physical strength.
