Greetings Weary Travelers!

I will consider helpers for April 2018. Enjoy your travels!


I WOULD PREFER HELPERS WHO ARE 25 TO 40 YEARS OLD, PERHAPS, BUT NOT NECESSARILY, WITH SKILLS IN CONSTRUCTION, CARPENTRY OR ELECTRICAL OR ABLE TO HANDLE GAS POWERED EQUIPMENT FOR GARDENING.

We are situated on 22 acres with spectacular views of the countryside-just one hour north of Toronto by car and accessible by GO train or GO bus to Orangeville where I can pick you up.
There are three bedrooms available to helpers decorated as India, the Mediterranean or the Commonwealth, with two single beds in each and great views. Each room has indoor and outdoor access. There is a lower room leading to the garden just for helpers to read, view videos and play games. Laundry available as well. Now a picture perfect bunkie for 2 or 3 is available, thanks to the hard work of helpers. Most recently, we have added a small private ZEN room for peace or meditation. There is an indoor salt water pool (available June to October), pool table, archery, basketball, baseball, soccer, fooseball, darts, exercise equipment, several musical instruments, bicycles, outdoor fire pit, lots of books, many kilometres to walk in the hills, healthy food prepared for you, no TV service but DVD and videos are available for movie watching and free internet/skype are available at the library. Ah yes, and no animal dung!
The famous Bruce Trail is nearby. If you are here for more that two weeks, we could visit my condo at the Blue Mountains (please google same) for biking, hiking, sight seeing, etc.
ONLY NON SMOKERS PLEASE.
Outdoor work is required such as tree pruning, weed wacking, gardening, trimming, weeding, simple construction, window washing, building a walkway, digging, painting, furniture sanding, pool cleaning, etc. Last year's helpers proved to be a great experience for me and for them (see comments). I will need a copy of your medical insurance. This year, helpers work 5 hours per day, 6 days a week. However, hours are flexible if you wish to take two days off to travel or explore.
Please see my website for Savannah Wellness Retreat (centre not in operation at present). Personally, I have travelled throughout most of the world and would not trade the experience for anything. I will be pleased to help you with your English if that is your wish.
Looking forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, have great adventures!
Chimo, Janet
