  • Description


    A family of three (single mom with two boys - 14 and 16 years-old). We live in a house which is located East of Atlanta in Decatur with easy access to the train and near everything worthwhile in the city. My sons speak fluent German. I am looking for help around the house and garden. We want to establish a flower and vegetable garden and possibly raise chickens (I have experience in both of these). I am also doing some fun DIY home improvement projects (painting, light carpentry, landscaping).

    We love the outdoors, music, languages, and travel. You are welcome to join us on our outings. I've traveled all over the world and enjoy exploring other countries and cultures. I have basic to intermediate fluency in Chinese, Spanish, Italian, German and French, and I enjoy practicing any of those languages. I love hosting and sharing so I hope you have a great time with us.

    You must be at least 25 years old to be our Workaway. I have a very busy life that requires you to make decisions, take initiative and have some autonomy. I can only accept responsible, worry-free Workaways. This is not couch surfing; we would expect 20-25 hours of engaging work in exchange for a safe and comfortable place to sleep and home-cooked meals.

    If you are interested please tell me the following info so I can understand what you need:
    Title: Your First Name - Your Dates; Example: "Marcie - Aug 1 - Aug 30 2023" or "Marcie - 6 weeks in Sept-Nov"
    Try to answer these questions in your message: Are your dates flexible or fixed? Have you already purchased tickets or made plans? Are you waiting to purchase tickets after hearing from a host? Is this urgent? If so, please explain.

    Please briefly describe you and your skills, talents, interests. Also, what are your goals for Workaway while with us? (explore area in free time, learn English, cultural exchange with us, learn or improve a skill, find a local job, etc.) But please be brief and honest!

    We host Workaways for the cultural exchange, and for that reason we don't host people relocating to Atlanta for work or school. If you are relocating here, I offer furnished rooms with a rental contract, security deposit, and background verification. You can message me for the link to my listing.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    My previous Workaways say that my English is really easy to understand. I think this is because I've worked as a journalist and have good grammar and pronunciation. I don't mind correcting people when they speak and am happy to help you improve your English.

    Thanks for considering a stay with us in Decatur! We enjoy hosting Workaways and guests in our home. The main tasks for volunteers would be assisting me with DIY projects around the house, practicing languages with us, and anything else that may be a skill you have or wish to explore.

    The better experiences for hosting and Workaways occurs when we are like a family and have good communication! If you want to learn English or gain an American family experience then you will be happy here.

    I love Workaways and will treat you with dignity and respect. I can offer several living arrangements that include a queen bed or two twin beds with private bathrooms. The internet works great and the location is fantastic. We have a nice yard, and easy access to the subway station within 15 minutes walking.

    For international travelers trekking across the US, we may be able to accommodate a parked camper van but due to city laws you may not sleep in it while parked at our house. We don't host American citizens relocating to Atlanta for work or school as it does not provide the cultural exchange we seek from Workaway.
