    Currently seeking to learn more about oceanian plants and traditional navigation

  • Description

    I'm doing my best to follow my path and find my balance

    I like to learn things that make me resourceful. I'm currently focused on that following items :
    - food - growing/gathering

    Some experience about farming and gardening :
    I had the luck to help locals in Viet Nam and Lao about some farmer tasks. A bit about coffee plantations, mainly about the rice process (planting, harvest, sorting, drying) and different ways to do it (Hmong, Vietnamese, Khmu people). +SRI technic with workaway project in Kedah, Malaysia.

    Since April 2019 I started to join many volunteering projects in peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra and Sarawak, mainly focused on gardening, with a duration from 2 weeks to 2 months +
    These experiences gave me the opportunity to learn from different people, with different ways, in different areas and context.
    I read some books about respectful ways to grow food, and got particularly inspired by concept such as Natural agriculture from Masanobu Fukuoka and Tropical Permaculture from Timor Leste...
    I now want to focus on the Pacific biomes and to get familiar with the plants & cie

    I do therapeutic massage, got a background trainings from Chiang Mai in Thailand - school and private teachers - studied anatomy, trigger points, myofascial tissues by myself.
    I created my own composite way and still improving it. I like to share about the fantastic creation that is the body and the symbiosis relationship with the mind.

    In 2019, I attended to an earthen building course in Thailand during the one we practiced about adobe bricks, wattle & daub and cob. Still need to practice to get more experience.

    Through my exchanges with local people I learnt many different ways to make thatched roof with daun nipah (nipa fruticans), ilalang (imperata cylindrica) and daun serdang (saribus rotundifolius)
