    Description

    SUMMER: We are a family of 5, living & "micro-farming" on the beautiful shores of Marsh Lake, Yukon. We have chickens, rabbits, and alpacas - all of which are treated like family. We have 3 sons, 5, 7, and 15. Ideally, we are looking for someone who would stay with us for the WHOLE MONTH of July. We run a food truck and are very busy this month and would love some extra help with the all little chores around the home. We work long hours, so you should be trustworthy and independent. This stay is well-suited to a couple!! If you have a driver's license, you will have access to our vehicle and are welcome to explore. We live on the water and have kayaks and a canoe. We are close to hikes and several wonderful First Nations Cultural Centres. We are in a rural community, but there is a Community Centre 2km away.

    FALL: no big projects on the go right now. Help is always appreciated keeping the 5 & 7 year old entertained after school so mom can tackle some organization projects.

    WINTER: help with child care, mainly, including teaching your language and culture to our small children. Playing outside, kicksledding, skating, etc... House-sit opportunity for the right person/couple in January.

    Our children attend French Immersion, so helping them with the French language would be an asset - but all languages and cultures welcome.

    Thank you for reading!

    There's not too much to do, and it's all very relaxed! If you need to be "busy" all the time, you won't enjoy your stay here. You will be able to enjoy canoeing in the lake, walks in the forest, and lounging in the grass. We are located 45 minutes from Whitehorse, the capital city of the Yukon. We are within driving distance of several wonderful First Nation Cultural Centres. Marsh Lake is a diverse little community, and there are people living here from Germany, France, Switzerland - and quite a few other Workawayers here, too!

    Help

    SUMMER: We are looking for help in the garden (weeding, etc...), yard maintenance (barn cleaning, mowing grass, etc...), feeding the animals, and someone to watch the children while they play. It's not at the "max" end of things - you will have plenty of time to explore or rest up for your next big adventure!

    WINTER: Mainly teaching the kids about your language and culture.
