    Hi my name is Thom, originally from the North of England. Ive been doing workaway on and off since 2015 when I was hitch-hiking around Ireland. Until recently I was full time Head Gardener for a small country estate and hotel on the Scottish border, which was quite formal. Looking after a country estate's formal gardens and a 2 acre walled garden with many types of fruit, vegetables and flowers.

    I had a great time, but as much as I love horticulture having no free time to pursue other arts just isnt the way of life for me. I look at land as more than just a commodity - community and culture as more important than profit!

    For now my plans are to live with more time for the creative arts, weather that's as part of workaway or in my spare time. I used to work as a street portraitist on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh and have sold quite a lot of other pieces but mainly drawings – I'm still learning to paint which is one of the reasons workaway appeals.

    I'd also love to learn more about different ways of living, both from the land but also culturally and practically, weather its sharing in different foods, skills, ideas or anything else – particularly off grid/self sufficiency/crafts/localism/wider theories.

    Horticulture and arts are my main skill sets, but any help that could come in handy would be a pleasure. Manual work or not, it doesnt matter to me as much as good place and people :)

    It would be a bonus if there are any of the following nearby: Interesting gardens, Ancient Sites, Art Galleries, Good Charity Shops.

    More about me: I'm originally from the UK, lived in Edinburgh and Ireland and hoping to explore more of Europe. Im mainly interested in Art and work as a street portraitist aswell as small design commissions and drawing lessons.

    I try to live according to principles of ecology, permaculture, biodynamic organic farming and holistic activities and lifestyles. Was vegan for 2 years, now vegetarian, do yoga daily and love cycling and music of all genres. I really love literature and films too.

    Right now I'm hoping to travel and meet new people, share new experiences and culture such as cooking and language, or films and music, Ive been introduced to so many fascinating things and met amazing people travelling so I look forward to the possibility of more challenges and adventures that a nomadic life can bring.
