    The Best of Both Worlds
    Come work and play in the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Do you enjoy hiking, biking, and paddling in your spare time? Want to experience the Rocky Mountains of Alberta Canada? Want to improve your conversational English skills? Ever wished to attend the Calgary Stampede? We are a couple in need of two people who have experience with carpentry, masonry, gardening, and construction. Two week maximum stay in our house in the country and/or the city (Calgary, Alberta Canada). 1.5 hours from Banff. Our city home is within walking distance to downtown Calgary, to local shopping, trendy restaurants and beautiful parks. Our country log home is situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and is isolated. Our log home is open to two volunteers for the months of August, early September.
