I live in beautiful Revelstoke, British Columbia - Canada's newest developing all-season resort destination.
I'm originally from New Zealand but have been living in Canada since 2009. I'm always doing small jobs/projects on my house/garden so ideally looking for someone with experience in these areas.
I'm only looking for people to help during the summer months (June, July, August, September). This summer (2013) I need some help with interior painting and I will also be building a new patio/fence and outside relaxing/eating area. I also have a 1 and a half year old daughter so experience with young children would be a bonus.
I have a comfortable home and will offer you accommodation in exchange for a few hours of your work per day.
There are lots of outdoor activities from mountain biking to hiking and many other outdoor pursuits in the Revelstoke area. Revelstoke is surrounded by mountains and the mighty Columbia river runs through town. I have a basic bicycle that you can use to get around the quaint little town.
We are a family of 5. We are always working in all our different projects. The hotel that we have in town runs perfect and its always full during weekends. The hotel that is in the farm is starting and we need people to help in this project. In the farm we have horses, vegetable garden, old greenhouse and this little eco hotel.
We are a small Eco B&B in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, on Santa Maria island in the Azores. Our B&B is located near to the village of Almagreira. We are conscious regarding the use of the natural resources. Our aim is to grow our own biological vegetable and fruits, feeding us and our guests or even to sell to the local market. We installed a solar- and photovoltaic system to produce hot water and electricity as well as a rainwater collecting system for our garden, toilets flushing and washing the clothes. So we do own some land for gardening, fruit trees and a little forest. Part of our income is renting rooms and a small apartment.
We are a family of six Barry and myself then two under 12yrs and two over 20yrs. We share our home with our dog , two cats, and chickens .We keep pigs some months of the year.The eldest two kids come home some weekends both study one in galway one in cork .Myself and Barry moved to ireland from england 16yrs ago to raise our family and have our own small- holding.
Barry skills are horticulture and basketry and general maintainence work and Sarah Jane works part-time as a Health care worker and full-time as a homemaker. Our home is warm, friendly and welcoming.
We are developing a vegetable garden as well as growing and using all of our own willow for use as baskets, willow structures and fencing. We have expanded our growing and workshop space so now we hold willow workshop courses every month and educational tours with more diversity in the future.We supply irish and english willow to the whole of ireland.
We can offer help with learning English (if required) or any other skill that we can share. In addition, I can offer one to one tuition on the techniques used in basket making and organic gardening.
We play a lot of music here our son Reuben and Barry play guitars and sing and Reuben is in a band and we do have music evenings around the fire.
When we take time out we socialise with other families & friends hillwalking, cycle, canoe,soak in our hot tub, camp and occasionally surf. You would be welcome to join in with our recreational activities .If looking to plan your route here are bus links to help you buseireann.ie or kearnstransport.com or jjkavanagh.ie. Have fun exploring Ireland everyone!!!!
