    Hello- I’m Leah, the wife and mom. I enjoy children and would be open to doing childcare as well as any household duties such as cooking or cleaning. I have taken an interest recently in minimamilism, downsizing and organizing, and could be of help in that area. I have done 3 years of post secondary education with a focus on the outdoors while living in close community. I would love to pass on to my two kids a great appreciation and wonder of nature. I would like to learn some basic homesteading or farming practices. (Canning, gardening, composting) Our family really enjoys dehydrating the many fruits that grow in our valley or freezing them for year long smoothie making! I am easy going, friendly and am looking for new experiences for our family. 😊 I am happy to spend an evening in playing board games or going to the local community center.
    Hi- I’m Lindsay, the husband and dad. I have a love for all things outdoors! I have also done the same 3 years of post secondary education as my wife, that is how we met. I enjoy hunting and fishing as a way to provide the most sustainable and organic meat for my family. I am the main cook at home and can do omnivore or vegan dishes. My past jobs have given me a wide range of skills including: general maintenence, landscaping, yardwork, construction, guiding, sales... I am a strong guy who is very adaptable to move from project to project, problem solving issues that may come up. I am happy to be taught new skills by working along someone, or be left to work independent on the list of chores for the day. I love strategy board games and can be pretty competative, that is what my wife says at least!
    Hey- I’m West! I am a happy, social and inquisitive 5 yr old boy. I love spending time with my family and also love meeting new people. I love to be involved in projects whether that is in the kitchen or with yard work. I like all animals and playing outside. I am very excited to go traveling!
    I’m Joy, I am 2 years old. I love ‘chatting’ and laughing. I am a very happy ‘joyful’ 2 year old toddler. I love being held even with people I just met. I love all food! At night I sleep very well with mom and dad and rarely wake up. I am also excited to go travelling!
