outdoor summer job needed
Posted January 16th, 2013 - 11:14 pm by from Halifax, Canada (Permalink)
Hey everyone! I'm living on Haida Gwaii right now and I would love to stay in this beautiful province for the summer. Does anyone have advice on finding a job? I'm interested in any sort of outdoor work...preferably not in a big city. If anyone has advice on good treeplanting companies, fruit picking or farming jobs that would be greatly appreciated! Oh and the location doesn't really matter ... I'm open to anywhere in BC at the moment!

Hi Rhi, last summer I worked as ATV Guide at Cougar Mountain, Whistler (The Adventure Group - http://tagwhistler.com/) and was really fun and beautiful. They ask previous guiding experience and a 80 hours First Aid course.

We also worked in an organic Farm in Pemberton, North Arm Farm (http://www.northarmfarm.com/). We piked veggies, cleaned them, weeding and prepeared the ordering from restaurants and markets. It's not well paid, long hours, sometimes under the sun the most of the day, but was great experience and in a beautiful location!

Hope you find what you want!
