    We are a family of four living on a beautiful forested one acre mountain-side property in Roberts Creek, BC, Canada. We are looking for a young woman or man to provide childcare, light housekeeping and some outdoor/gardening work around our property. This might look like playing inside/outside with our boys, helping with dishes, sweeping and vacuuming, and helping to water the garden, pull weeds or cut the grass for 3-5 days per week.

    Our family consists of :
    Jolene - Clinical Counsellor/Therapist working 4 days per week
    Benny - a senior manager at a wellness clinic
    Buddy - An energetic 7-year old
    Arlo - An entertaining 5-year old that loves to smile and make people laugh
    Odin a two year old golden retriever/great pyrenees puppy & Merlin a two year old black kitten

    We live in a 4-bedroom house in a rural area on the Sunshine Coast about 10 minutes from Langdale ferry and approx. 40 mins from downtown Vancouver.

    As a workaway, you would have every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off to explore at your leisure (Sunshine Coast, Vancouver Island, or Vancouver for example).

    We are an open-minded family with a wide range of interests and attend all kinds of cultural events throughout the year. In the past we have brought our children and exchange students to things like First Nations Powwows and South Asian Diwali celebrations. They have the opportunity to spend lots of time exploring all of the best things of British Columbia, we have world-class hiking, mountain-biking, and fishing minutes from our front door.

    We are looking for help with:

    Childcare: daytime childcare help, and our support around the house days per week while Jolene and Benny are home and working on other tasks. This would basically involve and having fun with the kids outdoors (playing soccer, going to parks, going for bike rides, etc...) or indoors if it's raining (playing with toys, building forts, playing games, doing arts and crafts).

    Light housekeeping: Washing dishes, vaccuming/sweeping, laundry, helping to prepare meals.

    Outdoor work includes gardening, cutting the grass, pulling weeds.

    As a workaway, you would be staying in a private bedroom on the main floor of our house. Our beautiful home is located near the ocean in Roberts Creek and has beautiful Moscrop Creek running through the propery.

    We love to hike, cook good food, tend the garden, watch movies, play soccer, read, play games, play music, relax in the garden, and play outside.

    We keep the home well stocked with lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and staples. We eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, and in the summer our table is often filled with fresh veggies from our vegetable garden. You're welcome to help yourself to any of the food in the kitchen, to join us for meals, or to prepare food for yourself if you prefer.
