United Kingdom, United States
01/04/2021 - 31/12/2021
I'm from the UK originally and lived in California, USA for 20 years. I worked as a chemist and had my own small landscape business there. Last year I moved to Spain, graduated with my TEFL certificate, and taught English in Barcelona.
I would love to help out on practical outdoors projects, such as building projects, garden design, Vegetarian/vegan cooking, bicycle maintenance.
I've built patios, dry-stone walls, helped design and build a luxury chicken coup/Palace, built french drains, helped my friend re-build his house. Im knowledgeable about plants in general, and have done quite a lot of pruning, plant maintenance, and propagation.
In short, i love to work with my hands and be creative. I think i have some of my grandfather's genes who built houses in Canada and UK in the 1920s
I have volunteered with the WWOOF organization on Organic farms in Vancouver, Canada living with families with kids, and also here in Spain on several Organic small holdings. I have also helped build a labarynth in France.
I'm very handy, practical, intelligent, sociable and fit in well with families with or without kids. I love animals, and especially dogs. I enjoy music, cycling, hiking, windsurfing, surfing, reading, music, guitar, live concerts, and of course language exchange.
Thanks for your consideration, and looking forward to meeting you soon!
