We live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley and have a large permaculture garden, a pool, a large house that we are renovating, and yes, 2 little boys 8 and 6-years-old!! We are looking for someone or a couple to be part of our family and help in any way, be it gardening, housework, building or sewing.
Since it's a little difficult to get around without a car in Canada, 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 interests and love to hang out with our kids and us, we invite you to be part of our family and enjoy the Okanagan beauty and delicious fruits.
