  • Description

    Description

    We're a retired couple... we have about 1000 Christmas trees in varying sizes. We need help with them, like weeding, planting, trimming and cutting the grass. We also grow pussy willows which require trimming in spring. In addition, we are looking for general help around our 2 acres - gardening, painting, maybe repairing something, . We've hosted many travellers and workawayers and are laid-back and friendly world travellers ourselves. We prefer to host for maximum a week at a time. One or two welcome at a time. No smokers please.

    Help

    We have a small 2 acre farm where we grow Christmas trees and a few vegetables. We are chemical-free so we have lots and lots of weeds and need help keeping them under control. If the weather is dry, we may have to water the trees and the gardens. We also have a few building and maintenance projects underway. I'm not a great housekeeper so help in the house is also appreciated.
