  • Description


    .. We live on a large farm which is situated at the end of a dead end road which is out in the country and at the same time only 8 KM from a fairly large town, Sherbrooke, Quebec. Our principle occupation is growing plants in our greenhouses which we sell to the public and who in turn plant these plants in their gardens. We need help mainly in the spring and summer to grow the vegetable gardens and weed the flower borders and also with the cooking. We make compost and have a trout pond, one large very friendly dog and three cats and chickens. We are very friendly and laid back and like to converse and have fun. Any skills that you have like carpentry, omputer expertise, cooking etc could be very helpful. But the most important attribute of a good helper is sociability.. We play Texas-holdem and go to Vermont from time to time and are friends with the directors of the Bread and Puppet theater in Vermont.
