    We are a family who live off the grid in a beautiful valley in Kelowna BC 600 acres of bliss with horses and other livestock. Looking for a few extra hands to take the load off myself and my hard working hubby (looking for Someone to hire in construction)Construction or Horse experience would be lovely but not needed, getting your hands dirty in our organic garden and helping with light house chores or out lending a hand fencing, clearing trails or beautifying the land would be appreciated. If you're a couple travelling together and one would be more interested in child minding while the other wants to get on the power tools for construction that's also a possibility 😊
