  • Description


    We are a vegetarian couple who practise a healthy lifestyle and enjoy friends and family . Our home has a private beach on the Slocan river and is near Nelson British Columbia. Workaway guests would have a private space on the first floor that has an outside entrance, private bath, kitchen and bedroom. Local towns are minutes away and easily accessible by bus or vehicle. We are part of a peace loving community and enjoy visiting and traveling to all parts of the world and learning about different cultures. We are in need of help to keep our place enjoyable with organic garden, wood preperation and flower beds.

    At this time we are looking for someone who can also do some keyboarding for an hour or two a day, (amongst other activities) typing my grandfather's book into the computer in English. It has been published in Russian, and there is a draft in English.
