  • Description


    I am a single mother with a teenage son and one very active dog. We live on Galiano Island,I have a home on about 5 acres of land, most of which is forested and fenced. Looking for someone to help with firewood, (splitting, moving and stacking), small trail work, minor home repairs/maintenance as well as a large garden requiring regular maintenance. other odd tasks inside the home and outside and with our dog Duke. I currently work a variety of jobs on the island and I am a volunteer fire fighter. A close neighbour also hosts work away volunteers and so there are time when we collaborate on jobs and to meet other workawayers.

    Galiano Island is a summer tourist hot spot. There is lots of beautiful nature to explore and a warm and welcoming community in which to practice English. Galiano is a friendly community with lots of opportunities to meet community members and take part in community events. There is an environmental organization on the island, that is welcoming to and provides opportunity to work in a forest garden, do restoration work and/or enjoy nature. There are regular weekly sporting games held at the Activity Centre. Small island, means small group of folks playing. Great way to meet people and engage with the community.
