Hello wandering travelers!! my name is Michelle and I am an organic farmer running a 1 acre vegetable farm on my families property. We live the good life in one of the most beautiful regions in the country. Surrounded by vineyards but just a short bike to town on the historic kvr rail trail. Our house is always full of friends and family sharing meals, good wine, and lots of laughs. We love people and are big travelers so we are always keen to meet people and hear stories. This place is a little slice of paradise and we would love to share that with you!!!
We need help on our property, taking care of the garden and the chickens. The type of help needed really depends on the season. We can teach you about gardening, canning, seed saving, beekeeping, etc etc. but mostly, we can offer you a one of a kind experience. Our family is eccentric and we are always doing something new so there is plenty to take part in, but who knows what it will be next!!!! We are currently all booked up for the spring but we are looking for someone to stay from the end of july until mid-september.
English, a bit of japanese
In the house. We have 2 spare bedrooms with their own bathroom. Although if you wish to sleep outside we won't stop you. There is plenty of room to set up a tent!!
This is the okanagan, so there is massive amounts to do: hiking, biking, swimming, sunbathing, winery hopping. We are a ten minute bike ride to town/ 30 minute walk. We leave the property often so getting a ride is always possible. It is possible to take a few days off to visit the rockies, vancouver, etc. We are also not opposed to our volunteers getting part time jobs at local wineries etc to make some money while they stay.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
