    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn what it is like to be in a family in BC. Our kids attend a Waldorf school. We have some friends with farms that you will meet and be able to experience how they live through conversations. We like to get out of the house on the weekends so you are welcome to come along some of the time on our adventures and learn to catch crab or follow along on a hike.
    We have travelled all over the world so we can share our experiences with you about travelling to many countries from our perspective.

    Help

    We are looking for someone to help out with the daily tasks of life with kids and running a household. looking for help with the children, putting them to bed some nights, help making lunches and with other things the. Laundry, cleaning gardening and cooking. We may have a few other random tasks here and there like yard work.
    Since our kids are in school the weekday is fairly scheduled with getting them to and from school and the daily tasks with running a family. Durning the day you will be doing most of your 5 hours. The days you are on cooking duty or babysitting some of the hours will then be in the evening.
    We like to go out as a couple about once or sometimes twice a week, so you would be watching the children durning this time and putting them to bed. Possibly there will be a night or two we will be gone till the morning or following day.

    Accommodation

    We have a spare bedroom in our basement with a bed and a side table. We do not have a ton of furnishings at this point as we just moved to the area. We also have a second bathroom on the upper floor that you will have access to.
    We are right in the town of cowichan bay. You can walk to the village in 10 minutes with a handful of shops and restaurants coffe shop, convenient store. There is a bus stop close by. We would also be able to drive you places if it works out timing wise.
    We eat mostly organic food, we eat meat but not everyday.

    We only require you to work the days you are here. If you are here 7 days a week sleeping and eating food here then you will help out all 7 days. The days off are flexible, does not have to be on the weekend if you want days off. If you want to go somewhere for a few days or a week that is no problem just let us know. Also would be responsible for your own meals if we are eating outside the home.
