We are a retired couple who live on 4 acres on Puget Sound and love gardening. We find it is hard for us to keep up with all of the weeding and sometimes we need help with small projects. We travel extensively when it is not gardening season and always enjoy getting to know people who love to travel. Actually, we enjoy getting to know just about everyone. We have canoes and bikes that visitors can use. Seattle is only a little more then an hour away and we are happy to transport you to and from the ferry to visit Seattle. We live in Gig Harbor which is a cute little community with many activities and good places to eat. We have a friendly cat and dog so being an animal lover is essential.
Washington state is very beautiful and we live in a beautiful place. Seattle is a typical big city so you would be able to experience a county setting and a city setting while you are here. We would be happy to show you around our area and to take you hiking if that interests you.
What we really need is gardening help so you need to have some experience working in a garden. Also, sometimes we have small building projects going (like building stairs to the beach). We have the skills to do the projects so can show you what we need you to do but sometimes we need help lifting and moving things for the projects. We will tell you exactly what we'll be doing before you come.
You would be staying in our guest room with a comfortable double bed. There is a bathroom and laundry facilities next to the bedroom. We would like you to work about 25 hours a week and we are flexible about whether you put in a few long days with other days completely off or work just a few hours each day. We'll provide meals while you visit- we eat foods from our garden and I really enjoy cooking. We can usually accommodate special dietary needs if we know about them ahead of time.
