    Description

    I have a little farm tucked in the country of the interior of BC, Canada. We grow a garden, as well as all sorts of furry animals, such horses, sheep, pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks. There is always lots of projects that need doing. The house is big, and there are always people coming and going. Community dinners are a common occurrence. I work part-time. I have older children away in university, but they are still coming and going. You would be welcome to help with us, and fit into our fun activities as well, or find your own.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live a typical Canadian lifestyle, and we are located in a beautiful part of the country. There is opportunity to connect with other locals, and opportunity for hiking, swimming, skiing and much more outdoor activities. We are a pretty fun family, and if you are easy going you will fit in well.

    I always have projects on the go. Generally my needs are around maintenance on the farm or building projects, gardening depending on the season. Sometimes I also have household projects. It really depends on what is going on around here.
