We are a family of three (Bob, Jane and Yili) living in a rural community, Argenta, situated in the beautiful north end of Kootenay Lake or Purcell Mountain range.

We have a 2-acre property. Our log house is off-grid but with a small micro-hydro system. We started a large organic garden and a green house in 2011, which grew so much food for us. We have two milking goats and about a dozen ducks.
I used to work as a wildlife biologist before I am a stay-at-home mom. My husband Bob currently works for local internet provider as a manager. Our son Yili born in October 2012, now is a very curious and helpful toddler.

We can offer you lots learning if you are interested in raising dairy goats, grow vegetable organically, living off-grid and raising a child at the same time. At the same time, we expect hard work from you! But most work here is fun. You will work about 4-5hrs a day, 5 days a week. The days of working are flexible. I will feed you yummy and organic food. We will have most work starting late April till October.

There are also tons opportunities to hike in alpines, fishing in the Kootenay lake, ski-touring in the winter, and mingling((mostly playing music) with our amazing community.
We would love to share our simple, peaceful, yet busy life with wonderful friends from all over the world.

Accommodation: We recently fixed up our helpers' cabin. It has its own very simple kitchen and outhouse. The inside is also very cozy with my touch of art work and fabric hanging. We built shelves and counters. However it is still too cold to stay from November to mid-March. We do have an extra large room with a queen size bed in our house.
