Hi! I'm Jocelyn, I'm 23 years old and I'm from London. I graduated from university in 2018 and moved back to London before coming to Spain to work and travel. Before I left, I worked for a small charity, mostly with children and young people, using gardening, cooking and making to connect people to nature and to each other.
Growing up in central London, I didn't have many opportunities to grow plants myself, but I did help out with relatives on their allotments, and spent time outside in parks whenever I could. I love being outside, and especially enjoy cycling, walking and wild swimming. Having just spent three years living in another city, Amsterdam, where I studied anthropology, I am very keen to get out and learn more about the realities and practices of agriculture and sustainability, as I am very passionate about environmental and social issues.
I also enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time getting to know people from different places and backgrounds. I am open minded, fun-loving and positive, and always keen to learn from the people around me.

Gardening (basic but improving) - planting, weeding, watering etc.
My previous experience of growing includes working in London for an environmental education charity, which has gardens around London and uses them to teach children about the importance of nature and biodiversity, organic food growing and the life of the soil and insects. On these gardens, I have helped with planting and maintenance. I have also worked a bit on my family's allotment, and while doing Workaway this year in Spain I have been learning more about biodynamic methods, permaculture and the daily tasks that are needed.
In addition to this, I have about a year's experience in hospitality, working for two bars in London and for agencies that provide staff to high-end hotels in London.
