    Description

    We have an 80 acre hobby farm where have large vegetable gardens as well as cash crops - corn and hay. We also have 3 horses. My husband Chris and I live here with our 2 children (23 and 26) who are attending University and would love to show you around if you come. We are about 25 minutes outside the city of Ottawa and there are buses not too far away.
    If you would like to come help us we can provide private accommodation and food for volunteering 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    What else ...

    Ottawa is the capital of Canada. The city is situated along the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, opposite Gatineau, Quebec. The metropolitan population of Ottawa is 1.1 million and is the fourth largest city in Canada.

    Unique as a North American capital, the city is bilingual. English is the first language of a majority of the population, but French is the first language of a significant number. Staff in most downtown stores and restaurants speak both well and, in general, bilingualism is common.

    The city is probably best known as the nation's capital but has become one of the fastest growing cities in North America owing to low crime, low unemployment, and the high-tech business sector.
