In 2010 we opened a cultural centre in little village of Yarker, Ontario. We have an art gallery, movie screenings, concerts, slide-shows, lectures and other interesting events. We also hold an art festival in September. The house needs a lot of renovation and we are working on it on our own, because we have quite low budget.
There is still a lot of things to do, like repairing walls, some other construction work, painting etc.. But mainly we need help with the garden (weeding, planting, digging) and with the cultural centre activities (like attending the gallery, hanging the exhibitions, help with workshops and other events, etc. .
In exchange for help we can offer accommodation, food, friendly atmosphere and some fun (like you can do hiking, biking and trips around, or canoeing, or swimming in the river in front of the house in the summer). We hope that you would help for 6-7 hours a day, 5 days per week.
Please, keep in mind that the place doesn't look like a five star hotel, because we have the renovation going on and we do not use air-conditioners. Please, note that we have pets in the house (1 dog, 2 cats, 2 teenagers). Due to limitations of space (we only have two guests bedrooms and we often have visitors) we would prefer to host couples than single people.
