Positive, self-motivated non-smokers welcome! Our team at Three Oaks Farm and Saanich Organics is a hard working, progressive, communicative, fun loving, inclusive, and community oriented group and we welcome more of the same :)

Three Oaks is a 6 acre property with 2 acres under cultivation. We grow mixed vegetables and small fruits, sell lots of Spring and Fall seedlings, and have 4 greenhouses. We could use help with all aspects of gardening; seeding, transplanting, wheelbarrowing compost, preparing beds, rototilling, weeding, harvesting, selling, eating, enjoying. We market everything through Saanich Organics, a co-owned distribution business with sales to our box program, restaurants, & two farmers markets in Victoria. Work days will be full, diverse & satisfying!

We offer full room and board and some financial compensation may be an option for longer stays. Separate accommodation is cozy and comfortable, with a composting toilet, cob oven, semi-outdoor kitchen, and shower access in the main house. If that is full there is also a trailer for use. We each cook our own meals and take an hour for lunch to eat together on our deck. There is wireless access. We are a family of 4 (kids are 11 and 16).There are 4 other tenants here, 2 of which work on the farm. We are located 1/2 hr drive from Victoria and 5 mins to local cafes etc. We are close to hiking trails and the coast, and have bikes to lend. We are open for helpers starting beginning of April. Preference for longer term stays:)
