    We are a small 6 acre farm and carpentry shop surrounded by the Salmon River in the Shuswap/Okanagan area of beautiful British Columbia, Canada (4.5 hrs to Vancouver). We are located 15 mins south of Salmon Arm, BC in the sunny, fertile Salmon Valley area, surrounded by farms and hay fields.

    We are looking for help in the gardens weeding, watering, mowing the lawn/weedwhacking, and helping with our event venue space and weekend farmers market.

    We have planted garlic and look forward to harvest mid July. We have 15 fruit trees and a big market garden where we run a farm stand on Saturdays July - October.

    We have a big house with extended family(mom, brother), 4 dogs, and 3 cats. Thomas is from Switzerland and Maria is from the Okanagan.

    We are a friendly group who enjoy having good meals, working hard outdoors, and swimming in our beautiful river that surrounds our property. We all speak English except Thomas who is Swiss and speaks fluent English and German.

    Accommodation is a private room and bathroom in our house.
    There is a corner store 2 kms up the road and it's 13 mins by car into the city of Salmon Arm. Hiking trails are also nearby.

    We look forward to meeting and learning more about you!
