    Description

    My name is Chrissy I am a single mother and I have two kids ages 8 and 11. 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 with the following:

    : building garden boxes
    :landscaping
    :wood splitting and stacking

    We do everything ourselves from the planning to finishing stage. So far I am putting the finishing touches on my house that was designed and built by myself and others. A lot can be learned if you are interested in self sustainable living.

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

    Gabriola is really fantastic for nature lovers so spending time at the beach on time off going for a nature walk's and hanging out in our village area are popular things to do. We have nice coffee shops and people are very friendly here .
