Get some hands-on farming experience
in the beautiful Cowichan Valley!

Position: Farm helper
Type: volunteer in exchange for free room and board, more (see below)
Farm: Mossy Banks
Location: near Duncan, Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island BC

Mossy Banks is a permaculture-based mixed farm in North Cowichan. We are looking for a single or couple to help with animal care, the gardens and the food forests. Please note: we raise animals for meat, so if that is a problem for you, Mossy Banks is not the right farm for you.

In return for work we offer free room and board for 30 hours a week, usually 5 days a week (until the end of October. After that it is 20 hours a week). You’ll have your own cabin/room/trailer plus three meals of great food most of which is produced on the farm or on other local farms. We also have wifi at the house.

Help wanted for November, preferably for at least a month and through the winter if you wish. This is a great place for tree-planters to spend the winter getting some farm experience.
