  • Descrição

    I signed up for Workaway prior to the pandemic and only had two experiences before the world shut down. First I worked for a month in Northern Ireland on a horse farm. I did a lot of gardening, landscaping and caring for the horses. I mucked out stalls and paddock areas. I also helped out with some of the cooking and cleaning. My second experience was outside Philadelphia helping a couple restore their Victorian home. My days were filled with scraping old lead paint from door and window frames. I have been a “volunteer traveler” . Going twice to Luang Prabang Laos for 2 months teaching English to monks and school aged kids through GVI. I have travelled to Zimbabwe and worked on a Conservation Project for three weeks and then to Botswana to help with a conservation group identifying local animals for a research group. During Covid I have helped family and friends with landscaping, gardening and house painting. Summer of 2021 I volunteered weekly at a Food Bank in their food garden helping with planting, weeding, mulching and cultivating. I volunteered with HistoriCorps in the US helping to restore a brick patio at a historic landmark Grey Towers. I have volunteered cleaning trash in small communities in NJ and planting floating islands to help with controlling pollution in small lakes. I have a lot of experience riding and caring for horses. I have ridden all my life. I am hoping that I will be able to travel again in 2022 to work on a farm or ranch with horses.
