    I'm an organic gardener living in the country north of Kingston, Ontario. I'm a vegetarian who has always grown, prepared and preserved my own food. A dog and cat share the home with me. A small property with friendly neighbors, in a welcoming community.

    Autumn in Canada us beautiful, vibrant red, gold and oranges flame as the leaves turn with the seasons. Crisp fresh air, warm days and cool nights, with starry skies above, are here to enjoy. Sleep outside in the screen tent and wake up refreshed.

    I'd love some help with my large garden, small greenhouse, and around the property. All garden chores from wat - tering to weeding to adding compost, please! As colder weather approaches, fall planting and soils amending are important chores. We'll be harvesting also. Cleaning up the garden beds and greenhouse will be part of the work. Assistance with set up of the stand at the farmers market would be welcome- and it's very social. No selling required - just enjoy the people you'll meet there. Or a short walk to Lake Ontario to enjoy the beach! Light maintenance at home would also be appreciated - painting, staining wood, waterproofing the deck, mortar repair. Various projects will begin at different times through the year on the property. Creating raised beds in the greenhouse is a project for this fall. Working toward permaculture, sustainable use of the land, low- or no-till growing. A hill of nutrient-rich compost is ready to be added to the gardens, and will nourish the next crops.

    Share my home & have your own room or there's space for a tent or camper in my yard. Access to wifi. I'll prepare a (vegetarian) dinner daily and you can help yourself to breakfast & snacks. This is a non-smoking household. Very friendly dog and cat.
    Your privacy is respected, all I ask is that you be respectful of my home, private space and be responsible and clean. Good humor and a smile every day!

    Lakes, forests, and nature park preserves provide many opportunities for hiking, swimming, camping and enjoying the outdoors. A lovely hiking trail which extends for many kilometres in several directions is close by. Bikes can be used to get around- there are no local buses. Train is available in the closest town, Kingston. Occasionally I'd be available to drive you here & there. Montreal, Toronto & Ottawa are 1 - 2 hours away if you need an urban change. Close to major autoroute if you wish to take side or day trips.
