MARCH 2021 update: We are looking for someone who is helping us with the garden and a big renovation. There is enough space in the house, but you might have to move from one room to another during the messiest part of the renovation. While you live with us, we expect you to follow BC's current Coronavirus restrictions ().
We live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley and have a large permaculture inspired garden, a pool and a large house which we are renovating and yes, 2 little boys 7 and 5-years-old!! We are looking for someone or a couple to be part of our family and help in any way you would like, be it gardening, housework, building or sewing.
Since in Canada it's a little difficult to get around without a car we intend to take you along, when we do something with the kids. We plan your days off around the weather and the bus schedule (there is no bus service up here on weekends).
When we go to our property on Galiano Island (during the warm months) we might ask you to take care of the house, pool and cat while we are gone.
We love getting to know people from all around the world and learning about their interests. If you are curious about us, our region and our interests and love to hang out with our kids and us, we'd love to invite you to be part of our family and enjoy the Okanagan beauty and delicious fruits.
