    We are a retired couple that are still living in our own home. We are still able to look after ourselves but do need help around the house and property. We live on a (steep) half acre rural lot on the shores of a lake with opportunities for winter and summer sports. Harvey is a retired air traffic controller. Harvey has recently had hip replacement surgery so he really needs some assistance. Our garden really needs work as we were unable to work on it for the last 2 summers due to a health problem so it really needs attention. The area where we live is very beautiful with mountains, vineyards and several interesting towns nearby. We have a young dog.

    We are hoping to start a small vegetable garden and the flower garden needs weeding. The path to the lake is getting overgrown and it would look much better and be easier to walk down to the lake. There is a small rowboat which needs some routine maintenance.

    Help with the gardens and minor maintenance around the house, etc. The work we would like to have done is plant a small vegetable garden, weed and replant flower borders and clean up the yard and area near the lake. This is all fairly rough work and may be more suited to a young man.

    The region is bordered on both the east and west by mountains. The valley is known for its hot, dry summers and is a favourite vacation spot for sun seekers and outdoor enthusiasts. It is also famous for its fruit orchards and wineries.
    Since long distance bus service is no longer available it may be rather difficult to travel but we would assist with travel arrangements.
