  • Descrição

    Descrição

    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 one or two workawayers at a time preferably for a month or longer.
    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. This 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.
