Welcome to our Botanical Garden. We went through major hurricanes in 2017 & 2019 and this 2 acre Botanical garden and plant nursery needs a clean up, plants re-potted& beautifying. That’s where you come in👍
1) My needs are: gardening, animal care (Kitties), painting and some minor Carpentry.
2) The minimum age to visit/ work on my property is 24yrs old.
3) this workaway experience is best if you like cats 😻
4) No tobacco smokers. Period.
5) You are expected to keep your room/ cottage clean .
Island life is about conservation of water, products & conscious living.
This Garden Estate & is located at 1200 feet with great views, in a peaceful residential area! This is a "room" exchange workaway. I share basic staples & my kitchen. I’m willing to change this arrangement depending on the situation. Let’s chat!
I have a 2 bedroom cottage W/ a small bathroom & kitchenette. 1 full size bed and 1twin bed. 2people maximum.
I am NOT on a bus route, but hitch hiking and taxi's are an option.
I have been hosting since 2015. I value your willingness to communicate your needs and ideas to me.
I need ID and emergency contact numbers prior to your arrival. Also I advise that you have health insurance & consider Air ambulance medical insurance.
