Hello, my name is Gwen Janz. I’m excited to be working with the Mayne Island Conservancy this summer and am looking for a place to call home from May 1st until August 31st. I know that housing is limited, but I am open to all sorts of living arrangements. Ideally, I am looking for a little studio or a room in a shared house. I am also open to house sitting and/or helping with gardening and general property maintenance.
To tell you a bit about myself, I am a kind, tidy and respectful individual who genuinely enjoys taking great care of the places I call home and contributing to the community in various ways. Other things I enjoy include surfing, hiking, kayaking, pottery, woodworking, gardening, cooking, reading, playing guitar, and sharing good food and conversations with folks. Originally from Coastal Germany, I have been working, studying and volunteering in the Salish Sea for over five years now and look forward to getting to know the community on Mayne Island better this summer.
Thank you so much for considering me!
