  • Description

    Hello !

    I am Jeanne, I am a french architect and engineer (civil engineering and sustainable buildings). I have recently left my job and plan to travel for a few months in Central and South America. I have started learning spanish on my own 5 months ago, and really want to practice. I would also like to improve my surfing.

    My first volunteering experience was one month in north India in Navdanya Farm, created by famous anti GMO leader Vandana Shiva. There I met amazing people from all over the world and learnt about Indian culture, organic farming and permaculture. I have also had a couple of experiences in guesthouses/farms in Thailand, where I helped in farming but also by doing some art works.

    I'm very curious by nature and everything new I will learn will make me happy.

    My main fields of interests are sustainable buildings (wood, bamboo, earth, hempcrete...), organic farming and permaculture. I am very interested in cacao and aloe vera farming. I'm also very found of yoga (I've been learning for 4 years now). I also like music and art, and I draw and paint.

    I'm hardworking, especially if it's outdoor work ! I'm also patient and a good listener. I'm usually quiet and peaceful but I also love to laugh :)
