    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi there, I'm Jenne and enjoy being in nature & outdoorsy stuff like hiking and cycling; cooking, baking & sharing good meals in good company, arts, crafts, drawing, yoga, meditation, silence, reading, writing, live music, learning new skills, and generally trying out things that I haven't done before. I'm a happy, considerate, honest, kind and enthusiastic individual.

    Most of this year I have spent volunteering at mediation centres, yoga ashrams and on an organic apple tree orchard. I'm especially interested in community-based projects where I can also become more educated and skilled in the practices of herbal medicine, healing arts, vegetarian cooking, sustainable living, and/or learning languages (especially French and Spanish). I'd like to get in touch with people who are open to sharing their knowledge and skills. It would be interesting to volunteer with a host who is into preserving, fermenting, processing and growing vegetables & fruit and making herbal/natural medicine (remedies, tinctures, lotions, salves, medicinal teas, skin care, essential oils etc.). But this is not a must :)

    Over the last decade I have lived and studied across the globe and both travelling and volunteering have played a big part in my life. Growing up in small town Germany, I always wanted to live abroad, learn new languages, immerse myself in different cultures and meet people from all around the world. After I graduated from uni, I packed my backpack and went on a 3 year journey across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. I was definitely hooked on travelling and living abroad!! After a few years back home I continued my journey and took on a new job in London (UK), before travelling across Central America and eventually ending up in Vancouver. During all this time I have worked & volunteered in various projects (wwoofing/workaway etc) yoga ashrams & meditation sitting / dog walking / animal care / babysitting...teaching English as a second restaurants, kitchen help and front of an outdoor lodge, house keeping and hospitality...on (mostly organic) farms & orchards: seeding/planting/picking/packing/drying fruit/veggies/herbs; planting apple a homeless shelter, serving & preparing food...human resources / recruiting / training...sales / fundraising

    I'd love to continue my journey and join caring people who live in tune with nature and themselves :-)
