  • Description


    I am retired and live on 90 acres in the Interlakes/Bridge Lake area of the South Cariboo, 1/2 hour from 100 Mile House BC. My husband passed away last August. I need help with wood cutting/splitting, carpentry/painting, lawn care, & odd jobs. I have room for 1-2 people. You will work about 3-5 hours per day depending on jobs. You will have lots of spare time to be a tourist in our area. I have 2 dogs & 2 cats. I go to 100 Mile House about twice a week for shopping. Workawayers are welcome to come along to experience a rural small town. I are willing to show you attractions nearby. If anyone enjoys cooking or would like to learn, I would be pleased to teach you. I belong to two volunteer organizations which keep me busy as well. Currently there are several fires burning across British Columbia, along with Covid restrictions.
