This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We show our guests our area, the lakes and mountains. We help with learning English. We sometimes go to local museums.
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.
We have a bedroom in the house for our guests unless they really want to tent on the yard. We eat together and try to eat local and healthy. We do not use any chemicals on our gardens. We do not eat gluten( wheat, etc.) but don't mind providing it for our our guests. Usually we do 3-5 hours of work a day.
There are hiking trails right behind our place. We have WIFI. As mentioned already, we take our guests to see the area.
