  • Description

    Note: Mark and Julia are unavailable until January 2020. Currently working on a project until September and waiting for the exact date of next project: returning to farm in Wales
    We are new to workaway but have experience looking after farms, animals, housesits, and looking after people.
    Julia: Nurse, Executive Director of a Care Facilty, a great cook (vegan), general labourer, loves animals, always smiling, very caring
    Mark: General labourer (need digging done? wood chopped? love pancakes?), teacher, professional movie editor, plays most sports, cycling, hiking, kayaking, loves animals. Taught in Vancouver and Toronto, Canada, and in Shanghai, China. Great sense of humour and strong work ethic.
    Recently we were in Wales looking after a farm. Made new many friends in Pentyrch. Returning in late October (?). Perhaps your project could mesh with our return to Wales.
    Looking for another project. Longer term, if possible.
    Most recently, Mark worked on a horse farm in Ontario, Canada.
    Yes, we want to see new places and meet people. Yes, we want to learn from you. However, we have determined that the most important aspect of this is that we want to help you.
