    Description

    We are a retired couple living on a farm in the Sayward valley. I, Frank, would require help mainly with firewood involving chainsaw work and basic maintenance. If you are knowledgeable with garden work, that would be a bonus.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Sayward valley offers many outdoor activities throughout the year.
    In the summer and fall months there is opportunity for fishing and beginning in September there is also an option to hunt.
    There are various hiking trails across the valley either to local beaches or up in the mountains. In late June, there is a famous annual mountain climb up Mt.H'kusam. This is the perfect place to come if you want to get the full wilderness experience.
