  • Description


    My name is Jeanine. Over the years, I've been building my house into a home. It's a large house located in Marietta/Kennesaw Georgia (suburbs of Atlanta) and with that I have created a nice atmosphere for my family and I to have and enjoy. My daughters (all 3) have graduated and moved out, visiting when needing a getaway, but needless to say, I am mostly living here by myself with a lot to maintain for just one. I work out of my home busy as a bee, but I love being able to enjoy my house and backyard sanctuary for when I have time off. As of right now, I have a few projects I need help with that I can't get the time and place to work with like gardening, some clearing, painting, and small handyman jobs. I want to stay on track with my land but also have room for new ideas and expansion. That being said, I have room in the back that I would like to transform by clearing some invasive plants and adding fruit trees. I also have a small garden that I would like to improve and expand. Maybe you've volunteered before? Some previous experience in gardening and farming would be great. Exerience in painting and small repairs, tiling, etc are also a huge plus.

    I also have room for more than one Workawayer, so assisting in storage my with organizing, cleaning and moving boxes etc or in my office with light accounting and bookkeeping or cleaning are also accepted. I also accept couples.

    I am very easy going yet dedicated to my work and home. I provide a good, happy atmosphere.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Marietta is a historical town only 25 minutes to Atlanta, 15 minutes from KSU, 5 miles from the Square with many delicious restaurants and which also hosts a farmers market every Sunday, as well as public transportation. I am 5 minutes from organic grocery stores and juice bars, Kennesaw mountain for hiking, and many parks for exploring. As for myself, I have traveled to many countries around the world and enjoy sharing my experiences in traveling, business operations, and holistic healing. I look forward to sharing and learning from one another. We are about 5 miles from any public transportation.

  • Help


    Tasks or hours can vary, but I do require 20-25 hours a week for room and some board meaning pantry stock staples like coffee, beans, rice, vegetables & bread with some family dinners. The tasks will consist of possible painting at house, small Sheetrock repair if knowledgeable in that area, gardening, light landscaping, planting tree project, possible small area clearing. Or possible warehouse type work, and openness to any incoming handyman attention. Also, light bookkeeping/accounting work available.
