    We are a small 'urban' homestead of 1 acre. We have raised bed gardens and chickens. We use firewood, and composting toilets. We often need help with small projects like more raised beds, getting and chopping wood and hopefully a green house. We make bent willow furniture. We love to show our guests around the Shuswap and go canoeing, hiking, and picnicking. We can help you with your English as well.
