  • Description

    Hi there, I'm Jenne and in my early 30'ies. Both travelling and volunteering have played a big part in my life over the last decade. 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 and after a couple of years back home I left again to live in London (UK), travel across Central America and have lived in Canada for the last 2 years.

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

    Through workaway projects I'm hoping to learn more about herbal medicine, ayurveda, yoga and any other alternative healing practices as well as applied permaculture and creative sustainable living. I'd like to get in touch with people who are open to sharing their knowledge and skills. It would be great 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.). I'm looking for community-based projects where I can become more educated and skilled in the practices of herbal medicine, healing arts, applied permaculture + design principles, organics, upcycling, building, vegetarian cooking, bee keeping and everything else that fits into this area.

    Over the last decade I've worked & lived in several different countries across the globe. During that time I have worked & volunteered in various projects (wwoofing/workaway etc)...
    ...on (mostly organic) farms& orchards: seeding/planting/picking/packing/drying fruit/veggies/herbs; planting apple trees restaurants: kitchen help and front of house an outdoor lodge: house keeping and hospitality a meditation centre: student manager & kitchen helper
    ...teaching English as a second language a homeless shelter: serving & preparing food sitting / dog walking / animal care / babysitting training / human resources / sales / fundraising

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