I've been hosting for a while now and have met many lovely people from overseas and locals. there are things such as maintenance and other fairly repetitive tasks like preparing produce, lawn-mowing and spring cleaning.
Accommodation is comfortable and things are kept in order; this just makes it easier for newcomers to find things & put them back. "Keep things together", "Put things back" & "Make things accessible" are our 3 golden rules.

I have a separate living area, but will regard you as part of the household and will usually combine meals & outings around the city and allow you a chance to do some sightseeing.
This is an urban city-farm that is intensively cultivated, 10 klms south of Halifax; walking and cycling distance from major retailers and convenient transport.

The garden is well established now; mainly fruit trees, veges, herbs, nuts and chickens. I'm committed to organic permaculture and am still learning. Work is 5~6 hours p/day with two days p/week off... I provide most meals, and for those meals you arrange yourself, time can be deducted from work hours. I try to eat mainly veges, but they're high preparation food so we often shop, cook and eat together or share meals as a household
