    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are very rural with no source of public transportation. Our closest cities are 1-1 1/2 hours away. You will get to experience a truly rural western way of life.

  • Help

    Help

    My husband is very busy with out side work and has some help with all he does. I work off the farm in town full time. We are looking for someone to do some cooking, yard work and gardening as well as limited amount of child care for our grandchildren. The only special skills required is a willingness to learn and a fondness for children. Would be beneficial to have a drivers license and a vehicle but not necessary. Must be able to speak English.
