Non smoking house. No Drug users.
Space available now. Women only.
SPACE FOR ONE Helpx. Don't apply if more than ONE person.

Update:
In Mid July 2019, looking for person who can help with a small business and possibility of part time employment. Would need to drive stick shift (not necessarily part of the job) be physically strong and also able to ride a food bike. This would be from April to end September. If this interests you for that time period, please message me.

NOTE: If you are in school or working part time while on Helpx, please do not apply. It is challenging we find to fulfill Helpx while working/ studying.

PLEASE READ OUR ENTIRE PROFILE/ references BEFORE YOU APPLY. Please have a photo on your profile. Let us know what skills you bring with you.
You also need to have a VALID VISA to stay in Canada. We will copy down your ID when you arrive as suggested by Helpx.

We are a family of 5; two wonderful sons. Trudy Ann's mother also stays with us and you would be sharing a room with her. One graduated from Univ and the other just started university. We also have a really sweet dog, Coco. We have travelled a lot together, and are always interested to meet new people. We spent a year living as a family in Goa, India. Trudy Ann is from India and John from Napa Valley (California), originally. We lived in San Francisco before moving to Canada.

Our house is often full of music, and with friends often stopping by for a cup of tea and some conversations. We love to cook, play music among other things. We cook fresh, organic locally bought food. Music is a big thing in our family.

LOOKING FOR: organized, clean and tidy person who can help with with tea & spices. Someone social, decent English skills for talking with customers at the markets. Work may involve some gardening, yard work, home chores, cleaning and helping at dinner time. Being quick and efficient helps. Let me know if you can drive stick shift.

Exchange would involves 5 hours of work a day in exchange for your room/ meals. You will have your own room. Please note, it is much busier with longer hours during the craft fair season.
Need helpers for 7 days at a time. You will get 2 days off in the week.

The things we do NOT enjoy: When people are constantly texting/ talking on cell phones/using computers while we are talking/ working or eating meals.
If you refuse to work or display rudeness towards us, it will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave.

We live 15 minutes by transit from downtown Vancouver and you can see the mountains/ ski slopes from our home. Lots of shops and cafes in our neighbourhood. The first 2 photos are views from our home.

Trudy Ann, John & family
