Specifically, we welcome any visitors whose primary purpose for coming is to experience/participate in life at EcoReality, or as an invited guest of a member. Other types of visitors would do well to seek alternate accommodations on the island. If this is the case for you, please do contact EcoReality to arrange a non-overnight visit that works with our schedule.

Visitors at one of our weekly potlucks.
We are WWOOF hosts (WWOOF is a worldwide organic farm volunteer labour organization), we have monthly meetings and potlucks, and we generally like to share with others and gather inspiration.

Please contact us in advance of your visit. There are rare times when we may be unavailable, or there may be so many people on the farm already that it's bursting at the seams.

We are located at 2152-2172 Fulford-Ganges Road on Salt Spring Island. We are about 3km west of Fulford Harbour. (How to get to EcoReality.)

If arranged in advance, we can probably pick you up from the ferry in one of our biodiesel vehicles. We encourage carpooling, hitch-hiking, walking, and cycling (be very visible and very careful- the roads are NOT cycle friendly).

If you work at EcoReality for six hours a day on a number of different activities that have been agreed upon in advance, you receive a night's lodging and three meals in exchange for your work. We generally can't arrange for you to work without prior arrangement.

If you are not a working guest, we suggest a voluntary contribution to help us defray costs: overnight accommodation suggestions are $25/night per person indoors and $5/night per person camping. Meal donation suggestions are $7 breakfast, $9 lunch, $9 dinner, per person. These costs are below that of other accommodations on the island.

Please refer to the welcome letter for more information on what to expect when you arrive. Note: We prefer if WWOOFers and visitors bring their own sheets and pillowcases/pillows or sleeping bags unless pre-arranged with Carol, thanks!

For more details on working on the farm, please see work parties.

Also see our WWOOF FAQ. We request that people coming primarily as WWOOFers (work-echangers) complete our WWOOF application, so we have emergency contact info, etc.

If you would like to visit, wwoof or join us in a work party, please contact us or call 250-653-2024.
