I am competent, adaptable and willing. My life experiences include 4 children (now young adults) and a lovely husband. I have worked in a factory, retail, IT, training, technical writing, gardening, and in a primary school as an aide and librarian. I have helped renovate houses and restored gardens. I am happiest when I am creating: food, crafts, plans, neatness. I explore on foot and by bicycle – sometimes with others but more often by myself. I have experience in volunteering – as campground team leader at the Queenscliff Music Festival in Victoria, at Wollangarra Outdoor Education Centre (mostly as gardener and cook). I was a Scout leader. I’ve helped on committees. I love reading and travel with a ‘swap’ novel – to read and then trade when I can. World events worry me but I will do what I can to make the best choices for our sustainable future.
Why I joined WWOOF
I am having a gap year (or two) to experience life in a different way. I want to learn. I want to share. I want to combine what I can do with what others can show and teach me.
