    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hola, ciao, bonjour, guten tag, aloha, I am Donna. I am a human who is very interested in nurturing the earth, living lightly upon it and spreading peace through friendship.
    I am new to workaway and am very excited to work with you.
    A bit about myself: I am a mother of two young men ( 21 and 24). I am a Handwork teacher at a Waldorf (Steiner) school, teaching the practical fiber arts to students 7-14. I am a hard worker and I enjoy taking care of my own home: tending the gardens, renovating & painting, doing maintenance. I also love to be outdoors: biking, hiking, camping, or just enjoying the gifts from mother nature, from the beauty of a small, delicate flower to the glowing sky of a magnificent sunset. I belong to a nearby CSA and it is the highlight of my week to go there and pick up my produce. I love the idea of self-sufficiency and am working towards that goal, albeit slowly.
    I have a deep reverence for mother Earth (Gaia) –enjoying all she has to offer and caring for & protecting her. I am happiest when I am in connection with her, whether it be taking a walk, tending the garden, watching a sunset, cycling through the countryside, hiking through the forest, sleeping outdoors/camping, playing in the snow or best of all being at the beach.
    My beau,Peter and I are a committed couple who love to travel and connect with people all over the world. Our passions include dancing, hiking, biking, being at the sea. We are comfortable in both city or remote environments.
    Our friends and family have described me as ...honest, hardworking, caring and loving, responsible and dependable.
