  • Description


    Hello. We are a family of 4 with pets, horses and lots of projects. We need help setting up our barn, work around the house and other projects. We eat healthy, organic food, go on plenty of adventures and have a lot of fun with our 2 boys.

    We have a 2 bedroom suite downstairs that would be your private living area. The suite has a kitchen, bathroom, laundry and more. We have a back yard, with a slack line and parks all around.

    My little hobby farm which now because of a recent move is little more than a garden. The farm is not a business.

    Everyone welcome!

    It says my reply rate is 0% because I had trouble pausing my account for a 3 year period when I didnt have an active account. I reply to everyone! lol

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have worked in many fields throughout my life, and picked up a number of different skills. I have also spent a number of years travelling and living abroad and am always excited to share and learn. Efficiency is the key! What is the easiest way to get something done with the least amount of resistance.

  • Help


    There will be many projects that will require assistance. Building, cleaning, designing, gardening and so much more. It is still early, so I will likely wait to see what skill set each person brings to the table, and set them up with what is appropriate.

    What else ...

    The house is just outside of Victoria, is does not take long to travel there. Buses run all the time, and are close to the home. I also go into town fairly often, so there are many options for free time/ days off. The area around the house is beautiful and quiet, perfect for hiking, running and adventuring.
