Hello Workaway! My name is Laura, and I'm looking for new experiences that differ from the past two years I've lived in busy Brooklyn, New York.
I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2017 with degrees in Romance Languages (French and Italian) and Organic Agriculture. I am looking for opportunities to expand my knowledge in culture and cultivars :)
Although I'm a first-time workawayer, I'm open to a wide array of experiences. I enjoy getting my hands dirty with farming and gardening, and would also love to learn the other side of the ag business through sales and marketing. I currently work as a tea curator with a focus in herbal tisanes, and am always open to learning more about the healing powers of herbs, plants, and nature.
I also have a creative streak - my favorite hobbies are knitting, painting, and writing. If you have any need for beautifying a space, I would love to help you out. This also includes maintenance and cleaning :)
I am an enthusiastic and hardworking person and really looking forward to cultivating new skills. I am eager to lend a hand in any way I can and hope to hear from you soon!

I have extensive experience in customer service through working in the food and beverage industry. I completed two internships with a non-profit organic farm in Athens, GA where I learned about herbalism and vegetable/flower cultivation. I am proficient in French and Italian and would love to expand my language repertoire!
English, French, Italian, a little Spanish
I eat mostly vegetarian (I am open to eating fish and poultry)
