The family, Axel and Christina and 6 kids ranging from age 17 to 10. We are Bible believing Christians and are active in our independent Baptist church. We have a family homestead on the Hot Springs Road outside of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. Our home is close to Whitehorse, only 20 minutes by car, but still feels out in the woods. Access to trails and the wilderness while still living with neighbours not too far off and a lovely coffee shop and the Hot Springs around the corner. We homeschool our kids and have a large garden and also have layer chickens. We speak German and English. Axel has a carpentry contracting business and Christina is a midwife. We also have a guest cabin on our property that we are renting out.
Help around the house
Someone helping us could learn about organic gardening, homeschooling kids, German-Canadian culture and experience the Yukon.
We would love some help with gardening(organic practices), taking care of animals, around the house and tutoring, especially highschool science. This spring we will be going back to Germany for 5 weeks and will need a house sitter.
We have a self sufficient guest cabin, power and running water that someone could stay in to start, but as this is a source of income to us during the summer months we would ask helpers to stay in our large RV. During the time we are gone and while they are house sitting they could stay in our house.
We can set you up with everything you need to spend time in the Yukon wilderness, we have canoes available and a vehicle when needed. There is no public transportation outside of city limits.
