Hello! We are a family of two: my 8 year old daughter and I, and we live in the country in the beautiful Pacific Northwest one hour north of the busy metropolitan city of Seattle, Washington. I am an artist and spend each day working on my paintings, improving our country home and yard and growing an organic garden. We lead an active, healthy organic lifestyle and would love to host people to help at our place and get to know people from other parts of the world!
We live in Stanwood, a town of about 4,000 inhabitants in the State of Washington in United States, one hour north of Seattle.
We are looking for help in two areas, so if you have skills in either let me know!
1. Language (other than English or Spanish) and/or Moving Arts (dancing, yoga, healing) instruction.
1 hour per day during weekdays language instruction- can be any way you’d like to share speaking or listening in your native language (music, playing etc- my daughter loves to play and dance!). Additionally, hanging out and helping us preparing meals, eating together and with day to day activities from 3- 6 pm in the house for 5 days a week. The other times during the day and weekends are yours to do what you'd like. You are also welcome to join us on activities and trips during weekends if you wish. We are actively interested in learning more dance or yoga skills.
2. Carpentry, Building Repair and/or Organic Garden Projects
4 hours a day during the week active outdoor physical work: working on outbuildings, basic carpentry repairing old farm structures, siding, or building fences, or yard and garden activities which would involve maintaining an organic garden; pruning, garden preparation, weeding, digging, planting etc. Rest of the time is yours to do what you'd like and free on weekends.
English and Spanish
One room with two large beds in our home and your own bathroom. 3 Meals a day-Breakfast included but I may not be available to make lunch. Dinners we prepare and eat together. We eat simple omnivore fare: free range organic meat but primarily vegetarian dishes.
There is a free public bus that stops right in front of our home to larger neighboring towns and a commuter bus to Seattle with daily regular services. The neighboring agricultural tourist area of Skagit Valley and Mt Baker wilderness areas are nearby.
