  • Description


    I am a first nation Mama with a 6 month old baby and very active toddler. I am looking for help around the house and garden... I have a 1 year old dog that also needs alot of exercise and would love an extra helping hand getting his walks in. I do have other childrean but no need for child care as most of them are older and come visit on the weekends when highschool is not in. The toddler and infant are shared with their dad, he lives just down the road and is very active in the care of the kids.

    The kind of help needed is keeping the fire going, cooking some meals, general house keeping like sweeping the floor once a day, dishes washed after every meal, bathroom kept up as there is only one in the house.
    The most important is thing is walking the dog. So you will have to be physically fit for hicking with the dog and able to lift things, move dirt, and occasionally dig holes.

    I live on a farm located on beautiful Gabriola Island near the beach. With lots of beautiful walking paths and loads of different beach access's, this place is a dream for exploring. The house is set in the middle of sheep fields, (care is not needed for these animals) but you get to enjoy watching the mama's feeding their beautiful baby's.

    The island is a 20 minute ferry ride to down town Nanaimo, and there is a cute little village center on Gabriola island for essentials. An island bus is also available that will get you to all different places on the island.

    I will be supplying food but if there are particular health or food needs that will have to be discussed. Also if you are needing extra kind of snacks that are not what I am supplying, I will be asking you to purchase yourself.
    Due to the older teens not living here on the weekdays, you would be in there room in queen size bed. On the weekend I would host you either in another room when my niece is away or at a different location but will always be in a comfortable bed.

    Internet is provided

    Drinking will be needed to be kept to a minimum as this is a family home, as for smoking or vaping, there are designated places on the property where you can be accommodate, covered places.

    I have two gardens one at my house and one at a farm down the road, both need tending to. We will be prepping them for the next months of garden season, moving some stuff around, and sowing or transplanting plants. So there will be digging, and putting organic materials on beds plus more. I have two green houses that will need to be worked on in regards to cleaning up and also prepping.

    House work is helping with sweeping floors, some meals, dishes, help me keep up with keeping the bathroom tidy and clean.

    Generally help with tidying up yard.

    Dog walking is one of the biggest things that will be needed, twice a day or one big walk. We are looking from 2-3 hours a day of exercise, if you love exploring beaches and different wooded paths. Aries is a perfect companion. I am almost healed enough to also take part in taking the walks or doing a share.
