  • Descripción

    We are a recently retired couple who have loved travelling, meeting new friends and exploring exciting places throughout our lives together. Now that we have the time and opportunity to travel at leisure, we've decided to try Workaway. We are both new to this adventure and look forward to enriching ourselves but, more importantly, giving back to and sharing with those that we meet along the way. We are both easy going people and enjoy working hard but also relaxing and learning about the places we are staying and the people who live there.

    Update 01 September 2021: We have been fortunate to be working throughout the pandemic in rural upstate New York on a 500+ acre holding. We've built and planted raised garden beds with cages, cultivated and renewed neglected gardens, provided forest management and helped in taking care of sheep, goats and chickens. Both of us have worked during the 2021 growing season at an organic, community supported agricultural farmstead. Karin helped in processing and packaging the produce at the farm and Eric delivered the shares to many happy customers!

    We realize that these past years have been a difficult period for many people. We count ourselves fortunate to be among those who have been able to get fully vaccinated (with boosters) and stay healthy. We look forward to the return of some degree of "normalcy" as well as meeting new people and making new friends.

  • Que habilidades tienes?

    Eric has experience in varied building projects, maintaining a medium sized holding with regular forest management for firewood and general upkeep of grounds and maintenance/repair of equipment. He also has a background in blacksmithing and MIG/ARC welding (mainly for repair of equipment and commissioned pieces). He plays a mean accordion as well!

    Karin has a background in physical therapy and is an accomplished professional artist specializing in painting, mosaic glass, pottery and basket weaving and enjoys sharing her love of art with others through group classes as well as one on one learning.

    We both enjoy cooking and keeping a tidy home wherever we travel to. Prior to retiring, both of our careers involved dealing with the public from all walks of life, so we are quite comfortable interacting and meeting new people.
