My husband and I live on 1/2 an acre across from the ocean in Gibsons, BC Canada. We live in a semi rural community close to Vancouver. In the winter months we have a great recreational snow area for cross country,snowshoeing, and back country. Also we are well equipped for mountain biking in our local mountains 10 min from our house. We grow fruit and vegetables and are learning to use our greenhouse. I’m constantly needing help with my creative outdoor projects and enjoy doing them with someone. I would love a buddy to help with raspberry supports, building wattle fencing, arbors, moving plants, composting and general garden stuff. Our home has a small new separate cottage. A single person that has some garden knowledge would work well.
