One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I first moved to Hawaii I live and worked on Mohala Farms, in Waialua, through the WWOOF program. It was an amazing experience to have my hands in the dirt, growing food and living in a tent every day. It was eye opening. I've since done WWOOFing in Japan and Alaska. I think you can really get to know a place by checking out the soil and food production system.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a lot vegan cooking knowladge and skills. If you're interested I'm happy to do cooking lessons. I make my own kombutcha and vinegar at home and I can help you with yours if you want. I used to teach swim lessons professionally and I was a Division I swimmer in college. If your kids (or any adults) are interested in a swim lesson, I can provide that.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm more than happy to help cook and/or do dishes. I've done both of those professionally lol. If you need a little help cleaning or with your garden, I'm happy to pitch in.
