  • My status


  • Description

    I'm Kate, born and bred New Zealander.

    I've just spent a year travelling Europe, mostly soaking up the Mediterranean summer lifestyle. Now I'm back home, with a strong desire to explore my own backyard, my own country.

    In Europe I volunteered with a lot of small farms and eco projects. I was so inspired by these projects that I'd like to start my own one day. Buy a piece of land, grow food and built an eco house. In the mean time I'm learning as much as I can by volunteering on other people' s projects.

    Before travelling I worked as a graphic designer, most recently for Te Papa. I love design and I pick up projects here and there.

    Let me know if you've got an eco project you need help with.
