  • Description

    Description

    COVID UPDATE: We are fully vaccinated and will only accept workawayers who are fully vaccinated.

    We are a couple who have just recently established a daycare/social club for early, mid-dementia and brain injury and unfortunately had to suspend its operation because of Covid-19. We now have reopened and will need assistance with our different therapeutic programs, such as music, exercise, art, and cognitive rehab.
    We have established a food forest of 4200 sq. feet while our daycare was closed and we may need help planting, pruning and harvesting, transplanting, raking. We would like to have two workawayers at a time preferably for a month or longer, this could be a couple or two workawayers willing to share our self contained garden cottage, with separate sleeping areas.
    We have had workawayers for the last five years and have made friends with many of them. We enjoy meeting people from different cultures and like to share with them our Canadian way of life. Our 109-year-old brick home is located on a half acre where we grow some vegetables and herbs and have a good number of fruit trees. Clayburn Village is a very small rural community in between Abbotsford and Mission in British Columbia.

    A little about us. We are a couple who are retired from our previous careers in Montessori Education and in nursing. We are both mostly relaxed, calm, happy people, but also very concerned about the environmental disintegration of our earth and climate change. We are not materialistic but greatly value relationships. Ramsey values a spiritual life as a significant part of life balance, while Leslie is a creative person who has a special place in her heart for children. Both of us are warm-hearted and love music. I like building with wood, sculpting, reading and taking the dog for a walk. Leslie loves gardening, making stained glass windows and painting. We both like to play games, have deep conversations and watch movies and laugh for no particular reason.

    We will either have a large room in our house with two queen sized beds and a full bathroom with jetted tub or a Garden Cottage, which is completely self-contained, except for a washer, dryer, and stove. The Garden Cottage has two sleeping lofts and a main bedroom. Both accommodations have cable, netflix and wifi. When sharing these accommodations, unless you are a couple, we prefer to have the same sex at the same time.
