  • Description

    We are Anthony and Alanna - two friendly and hard-working Kiwis making our way around the Americas (South: Aug 17’-Mar 18’; North: Apr 18’-Oct 18’).

    We’re keen to participate in projects/businesses that have a positive impact in your community and that leave a low impact on the environment.

    Our hope is to meet like-minded people, exchange skills + ideas and have fun while working hard.

    We are eager to try new things, get our hands dirty, and immerse ourselves in the tasks and responsibilities that are required. We’re open and friendly people who enjoy art, movies and music.

    To date, our experiences with Workaway have always been enjoyable and rewarding. We’ve worked on a variety of farms and also with families to help run their hospitality businesses.

    Alanna has a background in textiles, design, painting, pottery, and hospitality, and grew up on a farm on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand.

    Anthony is an eager gardener and photographer, with a passion for sustainability and exploring new cultures. Over the past few years he has worked with libraries and community groups to engage youth in education and awareness around sustainability.
