  • Description


    Our names are Steven (60) and Patti Reade (57). We run a small greenhouse operation with 7 greenhouses in which we grow annual hanging baskets, bedding plants and vegetables starters.

    Most work is done inside a heated, dry greenhouse. We need help to fill containers, transplant seedlings, sort tags, and general cleanup of buildings and area. We mostly need help in March, April and May and June.

    We had an amazing first year with our workaways, most of our helpers stayed 2-3 weeks longer than planned. We are very easy going hosts, we have lots of laughs and fun.

    We have 6 children and 4 grand children who visit regularly. For those with allergies, we should mention that we have a dog and a cat.

    We are on the outskirts of town, but arrangements can be made to pick you up from the airport or train station.

    From the Moncton NB Airport, we are about 1 hour.
    From Halifax NS Airport, we are about 2 hours.

    From the Train Station:
    Halifax: 2.5 hours
    Sackville, NB: 20 mins
    Amherst, NS: 20 mins
    Moncton, NB: 1 hour
