Hi ! We we are full for the fall but have space in the Spring from April 1-15 2020.
We need help with gardening and household tasks. Our biggest priority right now is maintaining our permaculture gardens. Anyone with carpentry skills would be great, as we want to build some hoop houses on our existing raised beds, and a bike shelter.
We have nice accommodation in a small two bedroom suite.
It is largely self-catering (you make your own food from the groceries or heat meals we have prepared) as you'll have your own space for cooking/eating, 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
some cooking prep/batch cooking for the family and you - we make almost everything ourselves from good ingredients
other small maintenance matters
Sorry, but we cannot accommodate smokers. We can accommodate vegetarians.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
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.
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.
A small separate two bedroom suite with full kitchen, bathroom, laundry, internet and cable tv.
Bus routes, attractions and shopping nearby. We can help with any questions about Victoria!
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
