  • Description

    For as long as I can remember I have loved volunteering and getting my hands dirty! I’m eager to immerse myself in the cultures and environments that I travel to. I dream of learning to garden and to harvest through permaculture, and to cook an abundance of vegetarian/vegan dishes for the family’s and friends I meet along the way. I’m a very enthusiastic and quick learner with an endless curiosity of the people and plants around me. I am hopeful and happy to offer my assistance to anyone out there that needs me. :-)

  • What else ...

    I love working hard but love joking around and being a goof just as much. Hope we can all take some time to share music together while we share meals and truly bond beyond just a host and volunteer relationship.
