My wife and I are on a road trip to Vancouver island to stay with my sister on her boat. We've just had a day open up for us though, so we want to visit Salt Spring Island. It's been a place I've wanted to visit since I heard about it.

I'm wondering if anyone here lives there or has been there and can recommend a place for us to stay? There are lots of farms you can stay at, and I would live to be on a permaculture farm and be able to tour around and even work. My wife LOVES animals too and she would die a happy lady if there were some animals there.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Please reply quick if you're able as we'll possibly be taking the ferry over there today.

Thanks so much in advance.

Caleb

We found a great place to stay. We stayed on a bus on an organic/semi (but not really) permaculture farm. The lady who owns the place was very sweet and hospitable. She really does care about her land so it was still very nice to see her gardens.

The bus was an old blue bird school bus that Sue lived in with her partner for 4 and a half years.

We also had the opportunity to rescue a goat that had escaped from the neighbors pasture. First time I've carried a goat. It was adorable. Would highly recommend duck creek farm if anyone is traveling to Salt Spring island.
