I am a busy mom of two young children. I work during the day and am looking for some guests (couples welcome!) with a variety of skills. I have some construction and landscaping work. There is also opportunities for babysitting, cleaning and preparing meals. I work in the city during the day, so you must be an independent person or couple. I live in the core of a small town. I enjoy going on excursions on the weekends (hiking, going to the beach, travelling around Vancouver Island).

Travellers will immerse themselves in a friendly, adventurous alternative West Coast community. Hike the Juan De Fuca trail, harvest some seaweed, learn about indigenous plants that grow here in the tropics of Canada. Just breathe our mineral-laden air and heal thyself!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I need assistance with two different areas (not both). On on hand: gardening, landscaping, construction (I am renovating a suite within my house). On the other hand: Cleaning, babysitting, preparing meals, shopping, painting. There are also eco opportunities, like the following: building a cob oven, making a mosiac platform in my backyard, build a pathway, build a greenhouse (I already have all of the glass).
