    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a beautiful area of BC. We are 20 mins from Sun Peaks ski resort, with amazing skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. Heffley Lake is steps from our house for swimming or kayaking and there are many hiking trails right out the back door.

  • Help


    We have 2 dogs, 3 horses and a 20 acre property that needs fencing and development. Duties would vary depending on the time or year but may include:
    Walking dogs
    Building fences
    Cleaning horse pens
    Helping to clear land for horse pasture
    Small building projects
    Cutting firewood

    Be prepared to work outside. It can be very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter.

    This would be ideal for a couple or 2 friends

    We have dietary restrictions ourselves so we don't mind catering to gluten free, dairy free or vegan
