  • Description


    Semi retired couple, living in a ranch home on a 3/4 acre lot in Lakewood, a Denver suburb. We're looking for people who
    have gardening skills and really enjoy it. We also have a few indoor painting projects.
    We have a queen bed and private bath for visitors in a very quiet neighborhood. We are a 15 minute walk to the light rail that takes you to downtown Denver and DIA airport. We grow organic flowers, herbs, vegetables and fruit. We love to cook gourmet, natural meals using as much of our garden food as we can. We will provide a dinner for each work day, breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided by you. We are particular about keeping our kitchen neat and clean and expect you to do the same. We have traveled internationally for many years and really enjoy meeting new people from different background and cultures. We are a 20 minute drive from Red Rocks Amphitheater, an outdoor music venue in the foothills, with concerts most nights spring summer and fall.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have lived in Colorado for more than 40 years, we love helping people discover all that Colorado has to offer.I have more than 35 years organic gardening experience and enjoy helping people to learn how to grow their own food. We cook most meals and whenever possible use food from our garden, however, we are not vegetarian. We also do seasonal canning, drying, pickling and freezing of foods and if you have interest in learning these skills we could do those projects together. We also have extensive knowledge of nutrition, medicinal and garden herbs and natural foods.
