    We are a semi-retired couple living in Nelson for many years - we have grown children in the area who we often visit with and many friends who we connect with socially and working together on volunteer projects to do with climate change and human rights. We love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, swimming, boating.

    Nelson is a beautiful small town of 10.000 people but serves an area of about 20,000 . It has an interesting history of mining, draft dodgers, doukabour immigration and back to the landers. There is a wealth of outdoor activities and a big music and theater community.

  • Ayuda


    I would like to build some terraces in the garden for berries and vegetables and increase the size of the garden by building more garden beds. Also help with garden maintenance. My son lives a few blocks away on a family property and we want to tidy up the garden for his upcoming wedding.

    Lots of outdoor activities - boating, swimming, hiking, hot springs as well as theater and music events. We live next to a rail/trail for walking and running on and a few blocks from the lake. There are several outdoor summer music festivals in the area.
    A city bus stops two blocks from our house and it is a 15 min walk down to the centre of town and a 20 - 25 min walk back up - Nelson is built on the side of a mountain so most things are up or down. We have two bicycles and an electric bike as well as a car to offer rides from time to time.
