This is such a totally unique opportunity. We feel it would be best suited to a couple, or for a solo traveller who would appreciate a retreat-like environment. There will be times when there are many people in the home helping with rennos and gardening etc., and other times when you have the space to yourself. You will interact with and get direction from us, and you will also get to hang with a pretty sweet group of little ones that tag along with us everywhere. We will invite you to beach dinners and night swimming in the summer months, and potlucks and games nights with friends during the rainy season. You will have as little or as much social interaction with us and our community as you like!
This is a great opportunity for people who care about spirituality (and who are wary of the spiritual bypassing that is so common in the contemporary world), community, connection, development, and who want to be of benefit in the world. You will be surrounded by many others who are excited to explore the ways in which small groups of people can make a difference in the world.
We need the hands and hearts of one or two Workawayers who are willing to commit to a minimum stay of 4-12 weeks or longer, who can help us with some projects around our house. We are looking for people with a lot of initiative, who are passionate about sustainability, design, getting hands dirty in the gardens, hosting, and more. There is much to do, and you will be part of small team of volunteers who are helping us to create this space for awakened agency.
On a day to day basis this spring and summer, we would like help with cleaning and some basic renovations to the house. Other work might include gardening, light carpentry (if you have this skill), painting, and cleaning. There may also be a bit of childcare, looking after our 6 year old daughter and/or 2 year old son. There is so much room for creativity and so we will welcome your initiative, vision, and skills!
We really respect your time and energy and so will make it a priority to develop a schedule with you that works for your own hopes and needs. While there may be some daily tasks, most things can be completed flexibly and so you will be able to take charge of your schedule/time. You will have plenty of days off and lots of time every day to explore our beautiful island, its forested trails, hidden beaches, as well as Vancouver and the wider world of the lower mainland and coastal mountains, which are all very near!
