    Description

    I live with 3 Scottish Deerhounds on 12 acres of woods, 7 km from the quaint (and very fair trade oriented) village of Wakefield - 30 minutes north of Canada's capital - Ottawa. The Gatineau Hills are home to a lot of lakes and forests as well as very picturesque farms mostly into bio crops and breeding. A lot of young families are setting up and working with new crops and animals here.
    The log house is extremely comfortable.
    Depending on the time of year I will need a hand with carpentry, re-organizing the pool, gardening, moving branches and dead trees in the woods.


    Je vis avec 3 lévriers écossais sur un terrain boisé de 12 acres à 7 km de Wakefield, village charmant et actif dans le commerce équitable à 30 min au nord d'Ottawa (capitale du Canada). Cette région magnifique de la Gatineau est parsemée de fermes et élevages bios, de forêts et de lacs. La maison pièce sur pièce est vraiment comfortable.
    Selon la période de l'année j'ai besoin de collaborateurs pour de la menuiserie, la réouverture de la piscine, refaire le jardin, , déplacer des branches et des troncs d'arbres.

    For this autumn store firewood.
    Help prepare the place where the wood will be stored - then bring in and stack the wood.
    As Fall is starting out on the firewood in both places. Moving, stacking, protecting.

    Pour cet automne ranger du bois de chauffage.
    Aider à préparer l'endroit ou le bois sera stocké - puis y amener et y empiler le bois.
    As Fall is starting we would be working on the firewood in both places. Moving, stacking, protecting.
