Devon and Cornwall: Skills for my supper - Autumn 2023

Sept 18 - October 13thII'll be walking around Devon and Cornwall and using public transport with no particular path, direction or itinerary. My aim is to trade my skills or energy for a place to sleep and a meal or two.I hope I can support community groups, small charities and individual people and maybe help out with an apple harvest or two. Ask me to visit you to help with your project. Or give me a place to stay and send me off to work for a friend.

Main skills I have to offer

When life, the world or your mental health gets on top of you, cleaning can go to pieces.
I love to hyperfocus on cleaning - so let me come and help!
You'll need to supply cleaning products but I carry my own rubber gloves!

Garden Chores

Weeding, picking, planting, strimming, you name it I'll give it a try. I'm not a skilled gardener, but I love repetitive outdoor tasks and learn fast. I'm more determined than strong though - so no heavy digging!I carry gloves, and work in my walking shoes.

Contact me

Drop me a line if you can offer a place to stay and want to use my help. Let me know how you'd like to chat to see if we can work it out.

Skills for my supper: May-June 2023

I'm working on an interactive map, that shows my wanderings in The Midlands, Shropshire and The Forest of Dean earlier this year. Link will be here when it is ready.

In between swapping skills, I'll be doing small amounts of freelance work in user research, service design, content design and digital strategy. Currently, I'm working on Shared Digital Guides.
