Interesting & enriching opportunity - bikes, community, farming!
We are looking for a motivated, resourceful bicycle mechanic to run our shop this summer. We are offering a unique opportunity; live with us on our 30+ acre farm comprised of 5 adults + one child, a fluctuating number of farm interns and visitors, cows, goats, pigs, ducks & chickens. With the right person, we are happy to share our space, resources and home grown food. The bike shop is located right on the farm, in the Shushwap area of BC, near a small town (pop. 2000). There are no other bike repair services for 60 km in any direction. An influx of tourists in the summer as well as a diverse local population means all kinds of repairs, refurbishing projects, and sales. Our shop is fully tooled (including welder) and we have an extensive stock of bikes and parts. We are also interested in creating bicycle powered machines to make our farm more efficient.
Our dream mechanic can:
We are open to discussing the arrangement, possibly offering a small stipend or different possibilities for earning money while here. We’re very flexible, if intrigued please contact us to learn more about our farm and this opportunity. email@example.com http://www.facebook.com/groups/38812009317/?fref=ts www.goldenearsfarm.com (in progress!)
