Hi ! We we are full for the fall but have space in the Spring from April 1-15 2020 in our Victoria home.
NOTE: We have just purchased property in Parksville (two hours north of Victoria) of just over an acre that we are turning into a permaculture farm. We have space here March 1-May 31, 2020.
We need help with gardening and household tasks. Anyone with carpentry or other mechanical skills would also be great.
We have nice accommodation in a suite in Victoria and in a 3-bedroom house in Parksville.
It is largely self-catering (you make your own food from the groceries or heat meals we have prepared) as, but we hope you will come share some meals with us too.
I'm a lawyer and my husband is a pharmacist and we have four young adult sons - two still living at home. We enjoy family, gardening, cooking, pets (we have a friendly cat but she is not in your suite, so if you have allergies you'll be ok), being out on our boat, being away, and being at home. We have travelled a lot and enjoy meeting new people. I work part-time so I'm home a lot. My husband works more than full time so you'll see less of him.
We need help mostly with:
general yard work and gardening
various construction projects
some cooking prep/batch cooking for the family and you
other small maintenance matters
Sorry, but we cannot accommodate smokers. We can accommodate vegetarians.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We will meet and spend time with you but you will be on your own some of the time. Our place is centrally located and near the buses so you will be close to much of what the beautiful garden city of Victoria has to offer. Our property in Parksville is close walking distance to the mall and beach, but has a rural feel as it over an acre in size.
We are looking for garden and yard work primarily. Experience in this area is a plus. Cleaning and home maintenance experience are also very useful. Carpentry skills would be excellent.
