Hi, My husband and I live in the country on a large acreage. We enjoy many outdoor activities including gardening and working in our greenhouses. We have many birds and beavers living on our pond. Also we have many cats, small dogs and 2 large outdoor dogs. Our 8, grandchildren visit often with their moms and dads. We have frequent vegetarian dinners and raw food dinners in our home. We are easy going, fun loving and have had many international guests live with us. The longest guest stayed with us for a year and has become part of our family.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Visitors here will experience a friendly family atmosphere with the opportunity to learn skills in an organic environment.
Volunteer work would include helping with the garden and greenhouses...weeding, planting, harvesting. I would like help keeping the house tidy, and occasional help with cooking, or food prep if you're not familiar with cooking. Each guest basically becomes a family member!
Our guests have their own trailer in the summer on our land.
We are one hour from Edmonton where you can enjoy shopping and touring. We're also approx. 5 hours from Banff and Jasper. We make sure our guests enjoy outings and get togethers with our many friends. In the summer we're frequently at the lake swimming and canoeing and we enjoy many picnics and bonfires in our yard and friends yards.
