I'm currently an architecture student/musician/hemp intern, who lives in a small flat by the River Themes in Isleworth, London (Near Heathrow, Richmond, Kew Gardens, Twickenham). It takes around 30mins by train into central London (Waterloo, Victoria, Clapham Junction), I have two cats (Roxy & Lana) who are very independent and completely passive.
I've just spent my summer traveling around Canada and WorkAway was a great way to meet authentic people :) I truly believe in helping people (this is not a booty call), the same way hosts have done for me. I'm happy to show you around the best spots in London when I'm not busy with university or work.

Talking is healing, I'm there to lend an ear and provide honest advice. I want to help restore people's faith in people. I've been playing guitar for 14yrs now, so i'm always willing to teach people or even have jam session. Every two weeks I volunteer at a Co-operative Hemp farm (Google Hempen) near Reading via train, you are more than welcome to join me. I normally stay with the beautiful people from Hempen for 3/4 days (they also provide 3 free meals a day and accommodation during quite seasons), would be wise to have your own tent just incase.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
I do need help decorating my home like painting (artists please send examples of art work), tiling, flooring, carpentry, sanding, minor plastering, gardening... basically general maintenance. But most of the time I'm happy with someone who is willing to cook and clean and have a laugh. I would also appreciate tech savvy artists, like digital designers who could teach me how to use programs like Adobe design suite, AutoCad, etc...
Also keeping my cats company, they always appreciate the attention :)
English, Moroccan & basic French
As I've mentioned above, I have a small flat but guests will have the double bedroom, because I prefer sleeping in the living room anyway. I can provide food (2x a day) and an unlimited source of English tea.
I am surrounded by shops and public transport, where the majority is within walking distance. There are wonderful canal & river walks around my area. And if you are really nice, you can use my electric scooter when I'm not using it ^_^
