I am a single mom with 3 sons aged 17, 15 and 12. We live in a bungalow in a small town in rural Alberta, but we are close to the city of Calgary and the Rocky Mountains. I work from home and also homeschool my 2 youngest sons. We love to travel and spent a month in Europe last year. We have a large yard and are planting a garden this year. My oldest son and myself enjoy gardening. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their travel stories. We can offer the experience of living in a small town, but we also visit my sisters in the city of Calgary where there are many tourist attractions. If time permits there may also be opportunities to visit Banff National Park and many other scenic wonders. My sons enjoy fishing and being in the outdoors, so there will be opportunities for camping this summer.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
I work full time, homeschool, raise 3 boys and take care of the house and yard, so any help with the above would be greatly appreciated. It would be great to have someone who enjoys cooking to help prepare meals. Also, I have a large yard and garden so someone who also enjoys working outside would be an asset. I am also building a fence this year so if someone has carpentry skills that would also be helpful.
We live in a 4 bedroom bungalow. There will be a bedroom with your own bed to use and a shared bathroom.
The closest international airport is 45 minutes away in the city of Calgary and it will be no problem to pick up volunteers. The Greyhound bus service can be used to access the rest of our beautiful country.
