  • Beschreibung


    My husband and I are Sacramento Natives, the Farm-to-Fork Capital of the nation. My husband is a retired Life flight nurse, and I am an Operating Room Technician. We are active and love to bike, hike, ski, eat great food, grow food, and taste wine and beer. Vineyards, historical 49er history, lakes, rivers, mountains, and the sea surround Sacramento.

    Sacramento is located at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We are only two hours from San Francisco and two hours from Lake Tahoe, and we are 20 minutes from Sacramento International Airport. Delicious craft beer and breweries abound, and the wineries and vineyards are just a stone's throw away. We live in a bicycle-friendly community, and downtown is minutes away. We have cruisers (bicycles) to share.
    We need help with home maintenance. Our large veggie garden needs attention, weeding, watering, and picking food for dinner!

    I am an avid bread baker (sourdough), and cooking excellent meals from the garden is our passion.

    My husband has Parkinson's and needs occasional help with daily activities. He is 90% primarily self-reliant. We need help with his daily activities as well as dog walking. We love a very busy life!!

    I need someone willing to house sit also.

    Please contact us as our needs are immediate.
