Come and help us at our house on 23 acres in Niagara Falls . We are a couple with a 23-acre camping property on the edge of Niagara Falls, Canada. Our property is a campground with people from all over North America coming through the spring/summer to end of October. The focus of your workaway duties will involve the house and its yard. Note that the neighbourhood is somewhat quiet and approximately 4 km from town. Bicycles are available for use and we can provide a weekly 24-hour bus pass which goes everywhere in Niagara Falls.
Help in the house
Very close to the border (5 km) to the USA, an hour and a half from Toronto, in the middle of wine country and cultural old Canada. We are a campground so there are people from all over North America staying at our property. We also have a have a large Halloween celebration here. This is done to a huge scale and is one of the 10 top attractions in Canada for Halloween.
We are interested in couples who will consider this place "home" and partake in the daily routine whatever that may be. You will get to see Niagara Falls and the beautiful Niagara Region. Go to Toronto and experience one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
There is a garden to tend to, lots of lawns to be mowed, wood to be cut, and organizing to do. We always come up with new projects so flexibility is a good trait to have around us. Strong arms, a sense of humour and a willingness to work is all we need from you, we will train you on any task needed. We have a zero drug tolerance but we do enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day.
We can work out together the amount and times you want to exchange in. If you want to work longer hours for a few days and then take several days of that is fine. If you prefer to work shorter days and go off to explore each day that is okay too. We are not much for hovering over people as they work so a good work ethic is appreciated to ensure that the time done is the time agreed upon. We expect five hours per day.
