We are a couple living on our small acreage overlooking beautiful Kootenay Lake B.C. We have two gardens, a greenhouse, two horses, a dog and two cats. Our nine-year old grandson often visits and keeps things very lively.

We enjoy connecting with individuals from other cultures and countries and appreciate diversity and adventure. We enjoy an eclectic range of music and art as well as being outdoors. Food preparation and enjoyment is a priority in our home and I am happy to share many years of experience with any who are interested. You will be included in community and social events whenever possible. We can go horseback riding if you are interested. There is a canoe at your disposal in warmer months and the lake is nearby for swimming.
Gardening help is our main need in these months. Our only commercial crop is garlic and the rest is for ourselves, so we will be preserving food for the winter which is a great skill to learn. This year we are also landscaping and may require some building and painting help as well. We are restoring an old airstream trailer that is part of this year's projects needing assistance. It's fun!
Work-away accommodation is in our home in comfortable, private guest rooms.
We are situated about 40 minutes from the quaint, historic and beautiful town of Nelson, B.C. and it's only a short hitch-hike or bus ride away. We also go to Nelson at least once each week. World-class hiking, swimming, fishing, music festivals are common summer activities in our area.
