I am an open hearted entrepreneur who loves life and being around people. On my organic farm where I've been for over 30 years there's lots to do in the spring, summer and fall and so I'm looking for a minimum of two people throughout the seasons. Although located in a very rural area there is a wonderful community of friends nearby and numerous towns and great local attractions to explore.
You will have a good time here. If you speak French that is a bonus for me as I am trying to learn French. Salute. Merci!
It is necessary that you can work effectively, efficiently, responsibly & independently. This environment is isolated unless you have your own car, but if you are looking for a peaceful quiet place this would be ideal filled with peace and tranquility.
No smoking or pets. I am looking for a person who is Eco conscious, respectful, responsible, and honest, who can work well independently, enjoys good conversation, cooking, art, music and people.
I strive to make this a really enjoyable and beneficial experience for all.
Minimum 2 week stay, with a possibility for a longer stay.
Work 25 hours a week both indoors and out in exchange for accommodation. You must provide your own work clothes, work gloves and boots. There is no communal computer although there is WiFi but there is no TV.
Please note that cleaning up after yourself is not considered working time but is part of the collective adventure of cohabiting. This includes light housekeeping, your food preparation and post meal clean-up. If you have special dietary needs you will have to provide your own 'special' food. Most meals have vegetarian options; eating organic most of the time.
I look forward to hearing from you.
