British Columbia in a region called the West Kootenays ( . We are located midway between Vancouver, BC and Calgary, Alberta, about 1 hour north of Nelson, BC. We welcome visits from people wanting to experience a beautiful, remote, progressive, artistic/creative and eco-minded community.

    We are a retired couple looking to host travellers wanting a pristine, mountain experience beside Slocan Lake of the West Kootenays, in the Rockies region, about 8 hours west of Vancouver , BC. We have a heritage home with in the small village of New Denver as well as a 3 acre patch of land in the mountains above the village.

    At this time we need help with gathering fire wood, clearing land, burning slash, fencing, digging gardens, picking rocks, and a variety of outdoor work. Help with indoor cooking, dehydrating fruit, preserving foods and cleaning is also welcome.

    Summertimes, we tend to work hard in the mornings when cooler; afternoons dedicated to paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, biking, hiking. The area is rich with music festivals (Kaslo Jazz Festival, Salmon Arm Roots & Blues, Starbelly Jam, Unity Festival, Shamballa) & local concerts, farmer's markets, art shows, hot springs, ghost towns which we attend as often as possible.

    The easiest way to get to the West Kootenays is via Greyhound Bus to Nelson or to Nakusp, BC. We can pick up from either town which isn't too far away. "Kootenay Rideshare" is a web platform designed to offer rides between Vancouver (or Calgary) to the West Kootenays. This is by far the most affordable way to travel. We also visit Vancouver frequently and can organize a ride with enough notice.
