  • Description

    Hello :)

    My name is Angie, a seasoned traveller from the UK currently undertaking a Horticulture degree at Eden Project.

    I'll describe myself as an optimistic, open-minded, friendly, hands-on and outgoing individual who has an appetite for adventure and all things creative!

    I am really interested in trees, plants and anything to do with nature, I am an experienced gardener and a qualified arborist by trade. I enjoy being outside, in whatever types of weather.

    One aim from using Workaway on this trip is to
    1) Learn about fungi, permaculture and extend horticultural knowledge.
    2) Practice Spanish
    3) Learn new skills, and teach some in return!

  • More details about your skills

    I can offer any of the following skills:

    I have worked as a gardener for years so I adore to get my hands dirty planting and growing fruit, vegetables, shrubs and flowers.

    Anything involving arts and crafts - I particularly love upcyling old items. Want to do up some furniture or create something using what you already have? Let's do it!

    Sewing! ♡ (capable but not professional ).

    Cooking! I am passionate towards learning about food, I especially like to create unique and spontaneous dishes incorporating local ingredients. I have a vegan lifestyle (always happy to cook for myself).

    I can teach you the Spanish language (introductory/beginner level only) with a decently structured system in which I was taught.

    I know a good handful of yoga poses that I can show you (not an actual teacher by any means), i can teach you some tricks on the hula hoop too. I can show you how to make dreamcatchers and some jewelry.

  • What else ...

    I love to meet happy and positive people, with open minds to build friendships and develop good teams whilst working!

    This needs to be mentioned to avoid any confusion- I'm not looking to volunteer anywhere where animals are used in any way (horse riding, horse and cart, camel/donkey rides etc). I am an animal advocate so I will not participate in any non-vegan projects (leather work, preparation of non-vegan food). Thanks :)
