We are a family of 4: Annie & Chris, with 2 energetic boys 6 and 8. 1 dog, 1 cat and 14 chickens are part of the extended family. Our German and Quebec roots found new soil here in the heart of the Slocan Valley. In exchange for food and a roof we are looking for some help in the garden between early-may to end of june.
The garden is a very important part of our life and it’s getting bigger every year, yet we are still new at it we are learning a lot. We are interested in permaculture ideas and designs, preservation and self-sufficiency. We are looking for motivated help for the preparation of the soil: primarily and foremost lots of weeding and digging. Many other tasks available though. This spring, we are starting the construction of an energy efficient house, this will bring new challenges in our life!
We offer a beautiful environment to spent some time in the Kootenays, good healthy food and a modern large camper as private space. We are happy to share our small kitchen and bathroom space.
We live on a beautiful open piece of land in midst of the Slocan valley, 3 km north of the village of Winlaw. This valley is an attractive place to visit, surrounded by wilderness full of outdoor possibilities. Lots of community events and people to meet.
Come and play with us!
