HOUSESITTER/GARDENER needed in Helena, a suburb of Birmingham, from September 15 to December 31, 2019. In addition to our three bedroom/two bathroom home, we have beautiful gardens, so we are looking for a housesitter to maintain both our house and gardens while we are away. The climate of Helena is typical of the Deep South. Our private house, including utilities, is offered to stay in for free in exchange for about two hours a day of taking care of our gardening needs. Our preference is for a single, non-smoking person, who is financially secure since we are not offering any compensation for this position. We received many housesitter responses from our last ad in The Caretaker Gazette – but not from housesitters who are able to do our gardening work. We would appreciate hearing from housesitters who would also enjoy some of our landscaping work out in our beautiful garden area. Must be a non-smoker/drinker, with no pets, or children. Please email your interest and reasons for wanting to take this housesitting assignment, let us know your gardening background, and include your references to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Thank you.
