  • Description


    I am a single mother with a teenage son and one very active dog. We live on Galiano Island,I have a home on about 5 acres of land, most of which is forested and fenced. Looking for someone to help with firewood, (splitting, moving and stacking), small trail work, minor home repairs/maintenance as well as a large garden requiring regular maintenance. other odd tasks inside the home and outside and with our dog Duke. I currently work a variety of jobs on the island and I am a volunteer fire fighter. A close neighbour also hosts work away volunteers and so there are time when we collaborate on jobs and to meet other workawayers.

    Galiano Island is a summer tourist hot spot. There is lots of beautiful nature to explore and a warm and welcoming community in which to practice English. I also work with a local charity (the Galiano Conservancy Association and so if interested learning more about environmental conservation and sustainability is possible.

    I have recently recently had an accident and broke my leg at the ankle. I have limited mobility and therefore I am looking for someone who can help with my large garden - general landscaping, cutting grass, pulling weeds, etc. collecting and cutting fire wood and general household chores: cooking, cleaning and dog walking (a large dog). I live on Galiano Island with my teenage son.
