    Description

    HI WORKAWAYERS,
    Starting May 2019 we are looking for help on our 35 acre forested property.
    Jobs may include cutting firewood, thinning the forest, cleaning, gardening, painting, building and general maintenance. We are a family of 3 living in beautiful Procter, BC located 35 kilometers from Nelson, BC surrounded by mountains with a view of Kootenay lake. There is Rob (57), Emmy (56) and Anouk (21). We like the outdoors, camping and campfires and relaxing on our patio enjoying the view. We go to Nelson regularly and can give our workawayers a ride and there is a bus a few times a day from the ferry.

    What else ...

    There are lots of fun things to do and see in the area like hotsprings, swimming in kootenay lake, hiking, biking, local markets, and visits to surrounding towns like Nelson and Kaslo.
    Take a free ferry ride across kootenay lake and hike some beautiful trails.
    There is public transportation to Nelson and we also regularly drive to the city of Nelson ourselves if you would like to go into town.
    We would like to have workawayers for at least a week and longer if we have space and if we both like the way things are going.
