My name is Alison and I’m an American living in Sydney with my husband and our 7-year-old daughter. I run my own photography company and in my spare time I enjoy gardening (in containers), cooking and reading. I’m also a wildlife rehabilitator with Sydney Wildlife Rescue. My daughter is in Year 2 and she enjoys reading, swimming, singing and slime (haha). We are both vegetarian.
Why I joined WWOOF
I am looking for something a little different to do with my daughter for a mother/daughter holiday. My dream is to one day have a little hobby farm (veggies, orchard, rescue animals) and this seems like a good way of getting my feet wet, so to speak. I mentioned it to my daughter and she was very excited, so figured we’d give it a go.
