We are a family of 6, 4 Children ages 7-15, we enjoy Soccer, camping, swimming, skiing, and many other activities. Mother works part time and Father Full time. Grandfather lives with us as well and we do have an exchange student at times during the school year. We are looking for someone to help out on our hobby farm during the week, learn English. Would suit an independent hard workawayer to help with the daily chores 4-5 days a week and other projects on the growing farm. We have a small flock of sheep, a stable with riding ponies and chickens for eggs.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We can offer cultural exchange experience on a farm, with animals as well as English language skills and the ability to explore Vancouver Island the beautiful West Coast of Canada.
Daily chores on our hobby farm include collecting eggs, feeding and bedding sheep in for night also cleaning mucking out stable would be much appreciated. We would be open to someone who is interested and/or has an equestrian background or just simply wants to learn to ride horses! Our home is busy with Children so you must be easy going, active and love children and animals.
