About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We will need help from early May. Please note - no applications will be accepted unless you are in Canada or have proof of a valid visitor visa to Canada.
Then we will need more help in the summer too, but easier work like keeping the swimming pool clean, mowing grass and help cleaning and cooking in the house!
We have 1/2acre close to town with a landscaped garden, an unusual house and B&B, a swimming pool and 4 chickens!
Matthew and Jane are getting older and do not have the energy or strength to do as many projects as they need done, or can imagine doing!
We love having people around getting to know them, to sharing our home, our food and our lives. We welcome you!! Please note - we do NOT accept ANY applications unless you are already in Canada.

We are Matthew, an architect, and Jane who runs a B & B, looks after the office, gardens and cooks! Matthew is very creative and is always practising his new ideas on our home, but has a bad back and knees, he needs help. Jane runs out of strength and energy to do all the garden work, and runs out of time to look after the B&B, but loves having an extra mouth to cook for!
