  • Description

    Description

    We live in the forest 10 km from town. The house has large gardens and we need help in the spring cleaning and preparing the gardens. I am a retired schoolteacher and my husband is a helicopter ski guide. Our adult son is also a guide and no longer lives at home.
    Unfortunately we will be unable to host in April, but May is still a possibility.

    What else ...

    We are 10 kilometres from town (Nelson, BC). There is a public bus 6 days per week, but not at night. We live on a steep forested property by the river where we canoe. It is a true Canadian rural lifestyle and village or city dwellers could feel isolated. I go to town often for yoga classes, to see friends and to shop for food.
