    Hi future hosts. I'm Matt from Ireland. I'm 28 years old and have a masters in mechanical engineering. I'm currently travelling Australia along the east coast. I recently picked up a book called "Call of the Reed Warbler" which has got me really excited about the regenerative agricultural movement. I have a huge interest in the food that we eat and where it comes from and I think it's really important that we try to eat as much wholesome varieties of food without the need for pesticides.
    I grew up on a mixed beef farm in Ireland and always suspected the only way to farm and manage the land was to till and insert fertilisers. After reading this book stated above I now realise the importance of our soil's health and incorporating the solar, water, soil enhancement, organic matter and microbiology, and biodiversity ecosystem cycles into the land to improve our lands health and as a result our health. I hope to transition into a regenerative agriculture course through studying ecology/hydrology/microbiology/mycologyand a combination of these including others but I want to gain some groundwork experience first to see if my passion is really there. I hope I can fit into an environment that will help me learn to gain the skills for managing and developing a regenerative/organic farm. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from my dream host :)

  • Was könntest du arbeiten?

    I grew up on a beef farm where I helped out with some of the daily tasks including:
    Fencing, painting, washing and cleaning out sheds, herding.
    I love animals and always get on great with dogs and cats alike.
    I'm adept at MS Office suite including project, excel, Word and PowerPoint.
    I'm open and easy going and follow orders to the tee.
    I'm an effective communicator and have excellent time management skills having worked in an engineering consulting environment for over 3 years.
    I have worked with tools and in the civil engineering sector in Australia so I won't be shy to any new building projects on the farm.
    I helped grow some crops like potatoes and tomatoes in our garden back home where I learnt basic gardening skills.
    For 3 months last year, I worked as a volunteer planting trees in bushfire relief areas of Victoria and NSW planting over 2,000 trees per day.
