  • Description

    Description

    Our family is comprised of myself, Sam, my husband Elan and our two sons Ezra (3.5yr) and Itaï (6 months). We have also 1 dog, Marlo. We are looking for someone to help care for Ezra and Itaï as well as participate in our other projects such as gardening and construction.
    We live in Harrington, QC. We are in the heart of the forest. We are located about 25 mins from Mont-Tremblant, an international tourist destination. Our region is known for it's beautiful lakes and rivers , hiking trails and outdoor activities. At our business one can find hiking trails, gardens, a private lake and more.
    In our free time we like
    - Laughing
    - Swimming in the lake
    - Campfires
    - Relaxing in a hammock
    - Singing in the sun
    - Listening to the forest
    - Hiking
    - Canoeing

    EATING delicious food!!!!!

    Our expectation is for the Workawayer to integrate into family life and help where possible. There will soon be lots of food transformation happening and we participate in a local farmers market every Saturday. We have various construction projects underway which the workawayer can participate in. We would love help with caring for the boys, light cleaning and meal prep. Ezra goes to daycare 3 days a week. We can offer a unique forest experience as well as a weekly stipend $.

    Accommodation

    We live in a small house. We've hosted someone by setting up a tent bedroom on our back porch to offer some privacy. Otherwise, we also own a vacant lot on which we have a tiny house available to host a helper. It is located 650m from our home. You will be provided with a space to store their belongings. We live in the forest nearby to our business where one can enjoy access to a lake and walking trails. Our spot is very quiet and peaceful. We will cook and eat together a lot. Workawayer will have access to all food in the house.
