    Description

    We have a small homestead just 3 miles east of Nelson BC,in the beautiful Selkirk Mountains.. We have 20 acres of treed hillside thats great for hiking in the summer. We have 4 (I know!) wonderful Cane Corso dogs that are our passion. We had a breeding porogram at one time and now just have the renmaining 4 dogs. In addition to the dogs, we keep about 40 chickens and a cat named Jayne.

    This year we need help getting our veggie garden prepped and ready for planting; the construction of our new greenhouse and also setting up our new bee yard. We are looking for help thoughout the growing season - starting April 1 and runninbg through September. If you think you might like to visit this beautiful area of British Columbia, please give us a call!

    We need to put together our new greenhouse and get veggie and flower seeds planted. We need the veggie garden tilled and raked and prepped for planting. We need to erect and electrify the fence for the bee yard and get the hives ready for the nucs that are coming in May. We may also rebuild our 73 year old gravity water system.
