I'm Joana, originally from Lisbon, local to London for the past 5 years. I've decided to take a break from my work with an environmental NGO to travel south America. I want to learn more about beekeeping, permaculture, mycology, medicinal plants and natural building. Sailing as well! And Syntropic agroecology!
I love cooking - especially coming up with new tasty plant based desserts.
I've shared a home with 18 people for the past 3 years, and communal living is something I deeply care about. I'm very interested in learning about intentional communities and how they organise in a context of self-reliance.
Eventually I'd like to start a project back home (Portugal) that brings together ecology, art and community building, so I guess I'm doing a bit of field work :)
I'm a certified beekeeper and have got a permaculture design course (PDC)
I've worked with an environmental NGO for the past few years, and have experience in activism and education.
I also know about digital strategy, user experience and research and such!

Vegetarian! (though I'm up for eating fish on occasion)
