Region: Ariège PyrénéesWe are a family of 5 with 3 daughters age 8, 11 and 13. We live in a very beautiful and wild area in the Couserans in the Ariege. Our house is a the end of a small road with beautiful views over mountains. We currently have a small gite next to our house and are in the process of finishing renovating a barn to also rent out to tourists. I am a photographer and organise photo workshops /trekking for young people in schools and local organisations. John occasionally gives trainings on intercultural communication in other parts of France and abroad. We have lived and travelled abroad and are used to meeting people from other cultures and all walks of life. We like meeting new people and getting to know them, and so do our children who are used to engage with guests staying in our gite.
Region: SaskatchewanWe have a ranch with 70 beef cows and their calves, several horses, a donkey, a goat, two sheep, two llamas and numerous cats and dogs. In winter you can help us feed and check on the animals and spring is our calving season. In summer you can help us with hauling the hay bales (round bales) from the field to the home yard (using tractors and bale wagons), check & mend fences, vaccinate calves & do other veterinary work. Also help train the younger horses. In the fall we bring the cows home from the summer pasture to the yard where they are fed hay daily. We also would like you to help with general household duties as part of our family. Lots of opportunities to ride horses (either english or western, if you would like to learn to ride, I (Marilyn) could teach you to ride in a safe environment) fishing, canoeing, pick berries, and watch abundant wild-life – elk, deer, coyote, & fox. We have fishing equipment and a boat. Two generations of families live on the farm yard and you will be part of our family. There may be opportunities to go on trail rides of several days. If you are mechanically inclined we have a heated well equipped farm shop and we always have machinery which needs maintenance and repairs. An International driver’s license would be an asset. We have a vehicle for you to explore the area. I am just learning to use the computer, so any help would be well appreciated. Sincerely Marilyn
