My name is Anita, I am a single mother to a teen. I own a beautiful 2 acre property in the warm Cowichan Valley of Vancouver Isle. Currently, On our property resides at least 2 other individuals, numerous dogs and cats (sometimes chickens or ducks--things change...) We have been living and developing this property for over 20 years and have hosted many work-exchanges long before there were websites for such things! Our mission here is to live in a sustainable community atmosphere building a site that nourishes both body & soul and it set up for community living long into the future. We aim to grow as much food as possible, and continue to create a beautiful environment that brings us peace, comfort & security. We have access to one of the most lovely (warm-ish) rivers in Canada just a few kms down the road, its fun for tubing, swimming or just escaping the heat on its banks. To relax at home, we have a lovely sanctuary garden with a small pond, swing, bathtub and abundant flowering plants and shrubs. Personally, I have a food based business, making specialty food products and selling them, along with hot meals from my food truck at markets & festivals on the weekends. Some might even say, eating my meals will be one of the perks of staying with us. I will also be happy to share some of my recipes & easy cooking techniques. In the summer, we also like to go on picnic trips during the week & we would be happy to bring you along to see a few awesome nearby sites. You will also have access to local hiking trails with spectacular views, bikes, or public busses to tour locally, or you can hitch a ride with me down to the gorgeous city of Victoria on Saturdays while I sell at market. In the evenings, you can enjoy a drink or a toke by our campfire, great conversations and the magic of the West-coast BC evenings!

I am grateful to Anita for being so understanding when I had VISA issues and was delayed on my arrival due to that. Food was incredible and the tasks were not difficult, they were even enjoyable to me.
On the other hand, the accommodation was not what I was expecting, it was not a private room (as stated on the position) and it was bit too dirty for my comfort which is why I had to leave earlier than originally expected.

HI Yvonne, I am sorry that I neglected to update regarding the change in accommodations, I thought I had addressed it in the intake questions (regarding : "like-camping" ). but I realized during conversation with Andrea that in fact the photos still indicated the other accommodation. I will correct that immediately and thank. you for being understanding.

This was my first world packers experience and it really set the bar high. Anita is so kind, understanding and is an absolutely incredible cook! The food is so healthy and delicious. The work hours is super reasonable, no early morning starts, lunch breaks, very laid back and enjoyable. The work itself is also reasonable, very manageable and easy, you are mostly working outdoors and I had no previous gardening experience so I learnt a lot, which was great!

Anitta is a very kind person, I don't know English and she was very patient in guiding me and making herself understood. She taught me English words and phrases. We had a comfortable and quiet stay, with exquisite food. Thank you very much Anitta
