Be part of life on a working permaculture farm

This farm-stay is the answer for anyone craving a connection to authentic rural life.  Spend your days relaxing, or participate in activities such as a barn and garden tour, educational programs, and collaborative meal preparation using only ingredients from the farm.

Are you...

  • curious about an authentic rural life?

  • hungry for a zero-to-100 mile diet?

  • want to know what 'sustainability' actually looks, feels and tastes like?

Getting Here

There are may ways to get to Denman Island, all starting with arriving on Vancouver Island, BC. Vancouver Island can be reached by driving and taking a ferry from Vancouver, BC or by flying into one of the 3 main airports on Vancouver Island. The closest airport is the Comox Valley Airport which is a 30 min drive from the ferry to Denman Island. Public transport exists but is limited so renting a car might be in order. Please talk to your host about the best way for you to get here.
