  • Description


    I live 25 minutes from Kingston on 10 acres with a large garden and a few animals. I have on-going projects throughout the year but mainly focusing on preparing for my annual September garden party. Nearly all the food for the 100 guests comes from the garden.
    So I am looking for help from April to September not only taking care of the garden and animals but also with building projects, painting and general maintenance. Mostly out door work but also indoor tasks when hiding from the weather or bugs makes sense. I have bikes and canoes for the nearby trails and river and will provide opportunities for urban fun in Kingston or camping.
