    Description

    My name is Chrissy I am a single mother and I have two kids ages 9 and 12. I have a half acre property on Gabriola Island BC which is a beautiful place to live and visit that is culturally alive in all aspects of the arts.

    I am looking for someone to help out. So far I am putting the finishing touches on my house and landscaping, fencing, gardening. The house was designed and built by myself and others.

    We live a 30 minute walking distance to the ferry and village.
    Gabriola Island is a short 30 minute ferry ride to downtown Nanaimo harbour, our largest city centre nearby.

    There is wildlife abounds on Gabriola ( lots of deer, wild turkeys and sea animals of course ) sure to please every animal lover and tree hugger.
    In the community it is easy to find recreation of all sorts on the cheap. People here are super friendly hippie sorts.

    We enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and would appreciate someone who can work well in a team environment as well as independently, strong as yard work is very hard but satisfying work.

    So far I have had work away women come to stay from Germany, France, Mexico, Sweden, and California. I found everyone had something different to give our family.

    There is a local library, coffee shop, and everything that one needs on the island.
    We have a local bus for getting around, but does not run often.

    I need someone who wants to be involved in the family life who likes children.
    Thank you for your interest. Happy Travels!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We stay busy but are simple people with simple ideologies.
    They can learn a bit of carpentry and how to live on a small island as it can be different than other places because of water conservancy and power outages that occur often. We will be putting up a fence, attaching door knobs and putting trim on in the house and painting
