    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In the distant past I taught children about Equine husbandry, training and riding. Although I don't have riding horses any longer we drive our horse and ponies for work and pleasure. I have medicinal gardens and vegetable gardens that we harvest and eat, store and dehydrate. I have a leather shop where I create many leather products, from harness to belts, to knife sheaths.....

    Help

    We live on a small hobby farm in the North Thompson region, BC. I grow medicinal herbs (all legal) have vegetable gardens and horses and dogs. We drive our horses and ponies and use the drafts to harrow the fields and for pleasure. I need help with the gardens weeding and harvesting and farm sitting while we are away as well as general farm maintenance and potential building projects. I have a leather shop I do alot of harness work and other leather projects. I am quite diligent in how my farm is run and animals are kept and handled. I prefer someone with horse experience, especially driving, however we do practice a high level of safety and horsemanship and there would be expectation to follow that practice.

    What else ...

    We enjoy driving our horses and can always use an extra hand. There are lakes about half an hour away that we occasionally take the dogs for a swim. Our children are grown and I am home alone. I enjoy my alone time but would also enjoy the company of a person who is eager to learn about horses and gardening. I work hard but enjoy relaxing and sharing stories. My husband works, I am home. We eat as healthy as we can.
