WWOOF Canada Gabriola Island
Reviews & Experiences
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.

What Is WWOOF? Farm Stay? Cool Experiences?
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.
The Farmers of Hamming Bird B&B / WWOOF Canada Gabriola Island
John & Janice
They are the best!
They are very knowledgeable, kind, funny, warm, happy and cool people!
The stories of their lives are deeply good & interesting. After I heard their the stories, I felt like I read a great book…! You have to listen to their each interesting stories that can inspire your life. I’m glad that I’ve met them in my life.
The Farm Working & Work Place / Environment Study
I ate them! They are surprisedly so sweet!
(actually, black berries are everywhere in this island, Gabriola. they are wild one in the garden.)
and we often made a sweet jam for cakes.
Grapes were ready for soon..! (I wanted to taste them tho)
Watering to vegetables! (with some love)
I loved the beauties of lights, water & plants!
Pumpkins need a lot of water!
We often gave to deers!
we gave deers not only peas, but more like old vegetables, fruits & weeds!
Then, there was a cute deer family living just nearby the garden. The family is living in the Hummingbird B&B property.
I got many deers shots!
I will put the shots in this article later. 🙂
There are so many flowers too in the garden, and of course beautiful insects too.

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.
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.
The Free Accommodations For WWOOFER
This house is for WWOOFERS.
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…!
The big kitchen!
We cook organic vegetables from garden every dinner with everyone. Jennis can teach us how to cook well. It was fun & interesting.
The big living room!
taste so good!! and the chatting was fun & interesting. It was a worth time.
Other WWOOFER / New World Wild Friends
Maximumly 3 people (WWOOFERS) can stay the house.
At the time, I’ve met cute Korean couple, Jason & Selena.
It was great to meet them. 🙂 Thank you!
We often chat each other. They told me the works stuffs well.
After work We sometimes went to beaches! (Sand beach is 10 mins walk away)
We swam there..! like the dog.
I sometimes went to a rocky beach just nearby the house. (5mins)
And see the sunset, listen to music, drinking GingerAle. It was definitely chilly good time.
