This is a small hobby farm on a riverside location in the Comox Valley, Vancouver Island. Help is needed with yard and house maintenance, and with the flock of purebred poultry and 4 small fainting goats.. I'm a single person on the acreage, with a number of house pets..ie bulldog, furless cats, cockatoo. for you to be an animal lover (and an outdoorsy person) is paramount. I need general help with all sorts of different things!! Gardening, poultry, yard help, minor landscaping (however would love to get a stone patio installed) and some small house repair issues. Wi fi is available in the main house..however Ive been using a travel trailer for accommodation, unfortunately there is not wi fi reception in the trailer. If you are a smoker, I ask that you smoke outside.. In the spring it is interesting on this hobby farm...as I also have peacocks that are noisy for 8 weeks during their breeding season. But you do get to see spectacular displays from them that time of year. But spring is also when I am in need of the most help with the garden and yard.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Have a myriad of small projects around the yard that seem to be never-ending. I also have a couple of house and barn repair projects that need taking care of...vast construction knowledge not required for them.
Variable...you can camp down by the river if you wish..or stay in a spare bedroom in the house..or live in the travel trailer in the yard...your choice!! Non-smoking in the house please.
At the moment the spare bedroom in the house is not available. The travel trailer or the camper van are at your disposal.
Headquarters/Merville area is in the Comox Valley, which is 10 miles from the nearest town (Courtenay/Comox)..and at the base of the access road to Mount Washington and its winter skiing , summer bike trails etc...Fishing is also great..as is water sports, hiking, biking. Great access to outdoor sports. Prefer singles only...a "couple" may possible, upon discussion.
