We have lots of knowledge about gardening and can help people learn about how to grow flowers and vegetables and natural fertilizer methods. The very nearby Shuswap lake is just lovely to enjoy with clean water in which to swim, paddle board and boat. You have use of our bicycles so you can explore the back trails or get to the beach or town.
We have a rather large garden, or should i say 3 gardens and it just needs taken care of such as weeding and harvesting. Also you can learn how to do canning and dehydrating. We also have two greenhouses that we have lots of plants that We grow in the garden This is not a commercial venture just large family run hobby. Some days we have bigger jobs that require helpers to work till the job is finished eg, lifting garlic from the field and lay to dry, or planting in the fall so we may work a long day to get the job done but when finished we take it easier and have a short day. Most of our daily chores involve picking peas beans lettuce kale berries for our kitchen and freezer and it is fun to work in the garden together as many hand make little work and delicious healthy meals come from our efforts.
