    We need help weeding our large organic vegetable garden, moving hay, and mowing pastures. Familiarity with horses is an asset, as is familiarity with tractors and a driver's license.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have miles of hiking trails,r and a marina half a kilometer away. The biking is excellent (the Kingston Triathlon route cycles right past our driveway). Kingston's downtown is ten minutes by car or 30 minutes by bicycle, passing Fort Henry historic site on the way.

    Kingston is home to two universities and a college, so there is a very active arts scene. The area has deep historic roots, interesting geology, and lots of wildlife. We are centrally located between Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal so day trips are quite feasible.
