  • Description


    ***AVAILABLE for end of August and the rest of fall***

    Spring is here!! And so is the start of the gardening season! The chicken have been busy laying their eggs again (they stopped quite a while this year during the very cold winter weeks we had!)
    If you're available to help end of July, please contact us and we would be happy to host you! It would be mostly helping maintaining the garden and help with the 1st harvest!

    About us:
    We are a family with 4 children, 1 dog, 1 cat and chickens in a lovely house with 1.25 acres of land in Golden, British Columbia. Every year we are expanding our small scale permaculture garden. We like to work with our environment and making sure we keep the bees and birds close to our place.

    I (Pauline) am a baker and will be working from our property.

    Raoul is working away and when he is back home he needs help with all of our projects on the go!

    The kids are 13, 10, 7 and 3years old. They are very independent and love meeting new people!
    We've been hosting helpeurs since 2015 and it has always been an awesome experience for all of us!

    We mostly speak french at home as we are from France and living in Canada for now 17 years.

    We are looking for helpers who would be handy and willing to spend a lot of time outside in the yard. We are happy to teach you everything we know about gardening if you're new to it! :-)

    We can offer accommodation and provide meals. We have Wifi available if needed.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We've been welcoming helpers through other websites, for 8 years now, and it's always great to be able to show our kids different cultures and languages!
    And I've been giving lots of my cooking secrets to our guests in exchange to theirs!!

  • Aide


    We mostly need help with the garden from March to October including seeding, weeding, maintain the garden beds, etc.... as well as helping with the chicken (feeding, cleaning the coop...) and some seasonal chores as cleaning the yard, picking vegetables in the garden, help with the canning, and splitting our firewood will be required.
    Some Babysitting time might be as well requested depending on references.

    If you are handy and willing to learn we would love to hear from you 😊
