Hummingbird B&B

IMGP5547

It is a pretty B&B in Gabriola Island, but also they are accepted people who come all around the world as farm stay (WWOOF).

I’ve stayed Hummingbird B&B as farm stay (WWOOF) for about 1 week.

It was sooooo good.

People are great!

foods are so tasty! (vegetables are from the garden)

Much enough time off! (work just weekdays morning)

They forcus on exchanging of benefits with them and us(WWOOFERS).

The balance of time of “Work” & “Off” was perfect.

The time was priceless and comfortable one.

  Farm Stay ? WWOOF ?

WWOOF is a great system for travelers, farmers & environments. Travelers do volunteer work at a farm, instead of that they can stay at farm and get free foods & accommodations.

So,,,

we gave deers not only peas, but more like old vegetables, fruits & weeds!

 icon-clock-o Work Time

Monday – Friday

7:00am – 12:00pm

weekdays after 12:00 to 17:00 you are free. After 17:00 you need to cook dinner with everyone with fun! and weekends(Saturday & Sunday) are day off! 

It’s good to wake up early for health, and I loved the atmosphere early morning in the a lot of nature.

SNACK TIME

You will also have snack time at every 10:00am on weekdays! This is wow, unusual as WWOOF! Janise brings them, and have a break, eating them, chatting, and she teaches how to do organic farming. It was quit interesting.

Very nice accommodation, and cozy. As you see there are deers around the house. When I wake up morning, I saw them from my window in room. They are very cute.

This biggg house is the Farmers’ house, kitchen, and B&B.

And it was surprised that John & Janise built the house by their-self ! At the time, she started to build the house 40 (she was studying design school when she was 21) , and using the knowledge, built that for only 1 year. They started from cutting trees…!
