Help wanted at a vacation rental / ecolodge in Anchorage Alaska in summer, and on sailboat in Florida between January and March.
Alaska: Primary work includes cleaning, yard work and being creative, decorating, cooking and gardening.
Depending on season, other projects available include tending to gardens, permaculture projects, composting, recycling and walking/feeding pets. We’re putting in orchard and perennial gardens, building a composting toilet, and other things.
I ask 20-25 hours of help each week in exchange for housing and food, usually between 9am -1pm, which means you have time to go exploring, make friends, get a part time job, etc.
In winter, housesitting, shoveling snow, deep cleaning, pet sitting, and assisting my grandmother in her home with shopping and cooking.
Florida: Cleaning and touching up paint on boat, keeping watch at night, helping prepare meals, doing shopping, film, recording, blogging and social media posting.
