Positions: Work exchange helpers
Project: Roberts Creek Farmstead
Location: Roberts Creek, Sunshine Coast, BC
Type: volunteer positions with accommodation provided

Helpers needed for Fall 2021! Week-long and month-long volunteers welcome.

About us: Our family has lived on our heritage homestead for nearly 15 years. The log cabin that we live in was built in 1926 for the area's first schoolteacher. Our small permaculture acreage includes many of the original apple trees that are now over 80 years old. We are located a 20-minute walk away to the heart of the small artsy village of Roberts Creek. The beach is just a ten minute walk away. Our homestead is tucked away privately amidst towering cedars. We have been building our permaculture gardens steadily, and have an orchard, asparagus, blueberries, rhubarb, raspberries, currants, horseradish and many types of vegetables. In the past we have raised chickens, rabbits, and pigs but we are taking a hiatus from livestock right now. We also grow golden willow for basketry, and a variety of medicinal plants.

We are looking for volunteers to help with fall pruning, mulching, harvesting, planting, weeding, plant dividing, and more.

Accommodations: We have a warm and dry Boler trailer in a private area for sleeping, and the bathroom is located in the main house. Meals will not be provided, but you will have your own small fridge and stove. Volunteers are asked to work five hours per day, five days a week.

Singles and couples welcome. Roberts Creek is a beautiful spot with loads of hiking and ocean activities available. We are located close to a bus stop if you are car-free. We are a couple of hours away from Vancouver.
