Hi, I am a young woman looking for a lovely new home on the island for May 1st!
I would be happy with either shared accommodation or a self contained suite on community land.
I am looking to live among open minded, communicative, creative & respectful folks to share living space or land with. I have lived in community at different times in my life, an experience that has given me many valuable tools for how to cultivate harmonious and respectful relationships. Community for me includes all sorts of living arrangements, but I feel that a shared interest in the land we’re on and the opportunity to check in with each other is important. I enjoy my personal space, however I don’t wish to live in isolation from the other people on the property.
I am very interested and passionate about caring for the land where I live, so garden space would be ideal! I have a great love of plants and living intimately with the land (gardening & landscaping has been my main work for the past 4 years on island).
I also have a strong yoga & movement practice, so a space for this would be an asset as well, but is not mandatory as summer is coming and I can take it outside!
A little more about me:
I’ve lived on Salt Spring on and off for the last 5 years, traveling in between for work, trainings and adventure. I initially moved here from Vancouver Island to do a 7 month farming apprenticeship with Stowel Lake farm; my first home on island, an experience I will never forget and am so grateful for.
I am now self-employed, working full time between my organic landscaping business “Soil Sisters” and my growing Thai Massage practice. I currently rent a treatment space for massage, however I would also love to have the option to practice out of my home if the conditions were suitable.
While I am a very social person and love to have friends over and attend community gatherings, I tend to keep things at home pretty quiet for the most part, reading, writing, meditating, stretching, playing music, cooking ~ all great loves of mine.
I am looking for a minimum 4 month rental May-September. I am open to longer term or a sublet situation. I am looking to pay $600 ALL IN or less with laundry access, equipped kitchen, bathroom and wifi.
I currently work two jobs, but I am open to a partial work trade to off set rent/utility costs. I can offer help with vegetable or ornamental gardening or other light land care maintenance 4-8 hours/ month at my rate of $25/hr.
Salt Spring is my home, thank you for helping me to continue my life here in this amazing community I am a part of.
Please feel free to pass this on if you have any leads!

Our cold spring continues…with the soil too soggy to work in many gardens, especially after this recent heavy rain. If you squeeze a small handful of soil and it stays together in a compact clod, then it is too wet to handle; it should be moist but still easy to crumble apart after you squeeze […]
