    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have your own living space in the beautiful tropical island and I can help you become knowledgable about local plants, foods, culture and connect you with more people on the island. Participating in this project will also help you contribute something to the island because it will be the first butterfly garden here.

  • Help


    It would be great if you can help plant flowers, start a veggie and herb garden, create art work around the house, help with the kids (they can participate in the above projects with you), and help around the house. Just let me know your interests and areas of expertise and we can figure something out.
