    Description

    Dear Traveler,
    We are a family of 5 with 3 girls ages 12, 9 and 7. We love art, gardening, good food, reading, traveling and music. We've travelled, studied and worked overseas and love hosting other travelers (1-2 weeks ideal). We have a dog, outdoor cat and a friendly family of birds with a nest on our roof by an olive tree. We love music and our girls play drums, piano, guitar and cello. We also enjoy board games and/or baking on weekends.

    We need help with miscellaneous house projects, mostly in the garden. We are building a pond in the backyard. You must be strong and willing to move rocks or planters around.

    Projects:
    Garden-weeding, installing sprinkler system, planting, moving planters around
    House- washing windows, wash deck, walk dog, misc house cleaning, cooking , some math tutoring
    Expected volunteer hours: 5 hours per day

    We have a spacious guest room with a private bath and walk-in closet. Our SF home is located in one of SF’s most desirable neighborhoods, close to public transportation.

    Vegetarian diet, non-smoking household.

    Laundry: There is a laundromat walking distance from our home.

    We look forward to meeting you.
    Best Regards,
    Host
