LAND OPPORTUNITY: 2 Bedroom Suite with garden for food production available for rent – Cowichan Station, BC

Posted by Azja Jones Martin on September 10, 2021

We have more land opportunities than what is listed here! Get in touch with a Land Matcher at land@youngagrarians.org to access our full land inventory and B.C. Land Matching Program support in your region.

ABOUT THE LAND

This housing opportunity comes with an established garden with raised beds, small greenhouse, raspberries and a small orchard which is available for the tenants use. The owners would like to rent to tenants who will put the garden to its fullest use and will maintain it as a food producing resource. Water is limited, so irrigation must be done mindfully, and drought resistant/low water requirement crops would be ideal.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

From Dorothea, the owner – We have an upstairs suite available and would love tenants who are interested in growing things. We are a quiet couple who lives in the downstairs suite and our lovely extended family visits occasionally.

We love nature and chose this 1/2 acre property in the country because it is walking distance to the Waldorf school, and a very short walk to The HUB at Cowichan Station, our local community centre, where yoga, clay coops and a Friday cafe take place. Part of the quiet we enjoy here is a commitment to no wi-fi and no smart meter at our home; we want our garden also to be free of microwave radiation, and for the human beings here to get the best possible sleep free of microwaves (though cell service is available). 

We love meeting people, and in the past have hosted wwoofers from around the world as well as teachers for Waldorf teaching training. Currently, my husband collects unusual wood and sells it (Bahnmann Timber) and I am interested in farming ventures, spinning wool and knitting.

I could partner with future tenants to help with a farming venture, or the future tenant(s) could be growing their own food and tending to a few of the fruit trees and some of the berries. We could provide wood for more raised beds. The upstairs 3 bedroom suite has wood floors and is heated by wood stove (firewood can be made available for you). The garden is nicely situated with a fenced veggie garden, lots of raspberry canes and a small orchard. The land is longing for someone to tend it lovingly (together with Dorothea) with respect for Mother Earth.
