  • Beschreibung


    We would appreciate any help in social media marketing while we are setting up an additional location for our social club. Also help with bringing in some new activities for this unique location in an art gallery situated in a central park with a lake. We are a couple who have established a daycare/social club for early, mid-dementia and brain injury. We may need assistance with our different therapeutic programs, such as music, exercise, art, and cognitive rehab.
    We have established a large food garden and we may need help planting, pruning, irrigation and harvesting, transplanting, raking, lawn mowing. We also plan to do some extensive landscaping work to improve accessibility for our seniors with dementia and in creating sanctuary locations on our property. We would like to have one or two workawayers at a time preferably for three weeks or longer.
    We have had workawayers for the last 8 years and have made friends with many of them. We enjoy meeting people from different cultures and like to share with them our Canadian way of life. Our 115-year-old brick home is located on a half acre where we grow vegetables, herbs and flowers and have a good number of fruit trees. This is a very small rural community in between Abbotsford and Mission in British Columbia.

    A little about us. We are a couple who are retired from our previous careers in Montessori Education and in nursing. We are both mostly relaxed, calm, happy people, but also very concerned about the environmental disintegration of our earth and climate change. We are not materialistic but greatly value relationships. Ramsey values a spiritual life as a significant part of life balance, while Leslie is a creative person who has a special place in her heart for children. Both of us are warm-hearted and love music. Leslie loves gardening, making stained glass windows and painting. We both like to play games, have deep conversations and watch movies and laugh for no particular reason.
