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.
We speak English and French. We live a mountain and river lifestyle.
Preparing gardens for planting. Clearing gravel that has been left by the snowplow. Rebuilding rock walls. Clearing brush and trees. Aerating and seeding the lawn. Possibly some painting.
Currently Whitewater ski hill is still open. you could arrive late March to ski and we could work around a ski schedule, such as a day of skiing a day of work, or ski in the morning and work in the afternoon.
English and French
Loft apartment above the garage with a small kitchenette. Toilet, bath, shower and full kitchen are in the house. Appropriate for a couple.
We will share meals. You can also store and prepare meals in the loft.
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.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
