I am a responsible, caring, fit, middle-aged woman who loves people, animals, and exploring new places. By profession, I do community development and education work in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. In my spare time I'm very involved with urban agriculture- community gardens, supporting local farmers, backyard chickens, saving seeds & public education. If you have a garden or houseplants, they will be as well cared for as your darling children and/or pets. I have experience caring for cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, lambs, turtles, fish, parrots and a donkey too.
I have a (brilliant, kind and beautiful) 19 year old daughter. I love interacting, playing, teaching and learning with kids and teens.
My husband and I renovated and rebuilt our old home. I have a lot of experience helping with construction projects and painting. I'm a keen worker!
I am not interested in cruising into a place, checking off the tourist spots and heading to the next country. I'd much prefer to meet local people, eat local food and learn about your customs. Caring for your children, pets or farm animals and/or garden and home, will offer me a chance to pause and experience life in another community.
I lived in France for a year a long time ago, and I'd love to improve my French language skills. I am also a trained English teacher.
I'll respectfully treat your home and loved ones as I do my own. I hope to meet you some day!
