Hello, we are a family that live on 4 acres 10 minutes outside of Nelson BC. Our family consists of mother who teaches Yoga and is interested in sustainable living. 2 boys aged 7 & 10 and our dog Zoe and some chickens. We have a beautiful property and gardens and would like to share our paradise with some enthusiastic and willing workers. We eat mostly organic and Drea is a excellent cook. We love skiing in the winter and spending time at beaches and outside in the summer. Nelson is a sweet Mountain town with plenty of culture and diversity.

Help with Eco Projects
Nelson is a unique area in the world. We are on openminded and fun family and a visitor could expect to practice their english, learn about sustainable living and gardening and eat yummy food.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The help required would be mainly in the garden and outside projects. We will be building a chicken coop and a greenhouse! Help with maintenance firewood collecting, splitting, garden preparation. Carpentry skills an asset. Looking for person or couple that is positive, enthusiastic, can work independently with direction and has some experience with organic gardening and general maintenance. You will be fun, must like children and dogs and would love to come to this beautiful area. Expect to work 5 hours a day/5 days a week. Meals are mostly organic and yummy and this is truly a spectacular part of the world. Accommodation will be a room in the house or camping when the weather is good. We also have a woodfire sauna and beach nearby.
You will be either staying in a room in our house which is a converted barn or camping if the weather is nice with access to the house for showers and kitchen. We eat organic food and we provide granola/cereal/ farm eggs/toast/coffee for breakfast (self-serve), lunch makings and dinner all together cooked by host.
There is a nearby beach, lots of hiking trails, kayaking, camping opportunities. You will have 2 days off in the week (not necessarily weekend depending on week) to enjoy the great outdoors. Also welcome to participate in family outings.
