We are a family of 4, Mike and Elfriede, our dog Kansas, and our cat Jasper. We are born again believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. We live about 20 km outside of Golden, BC along a dirt road, away from traffic and noise. We can see the boundaries of 3 National Parks (Banff, Yoho and Glacier National Park) from our home. Our home is only a 5 minute walk from the Blaeberry River. There is lots of hiking, biking and great outdoors around us. We have a big garden, greenhouse and some chickens.
DIY and building projects

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
How life is in an international family, as Elfriede is originally from Germany but now Canadian and Mike is from the States. Interaction of a close knit neighborhood, life away from the city, living close to and with nature.
Here are a few things we would like some help with:
In the spring = June:
-treating the deck
-rota tilling, preparing, and planting the garden
-helping around house and garden (raking the lawn, a lot of little things)
In late July, August and September:
-harvesting and processing
Guest room with private bath.
We live in the heart of 6 National Parks. Behind our house you can see the Canadian Rocky Mountains and from the front yard you can see the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains. There is a lot of wildlife in the woods and pastures around our house. That said, serious hiking up mountains will probably not be possible in May/early June yet because of the snow in the mountains. Hiking and biking in the valley will be fine. Nature pure.
