    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description

    Hello! My name is Ben, I grew up in Victoria, BC, Canada. I have also lived in Vancouver and Montreal for long periods, and volunteered abroad in Brazil, Mexico, France, Spain, and now Italy, where I arrived in May of this year. I love Italy and plan to stay here long term. Since I have arrived, I have done farm/construction work in Calabria, gardening work in a town near Orte, and worked professionally as an English teacher at a military base in Viterbo. My immediate goal is to learn Italian fluently. I am open to travelling anywhere within the country. I am looking for any type of volunteer work, whether farm help, help with children, or teaching English. My goal in life is to have a vegetable farm here in Italy, which I would also use as a shelter for sheep.
