  • Description

    Helloooooo to All,

    I'm a 34 year old South African working in the Mediterranean and there is some free time in my life for a few months & would like to use it by meeting people, and doing something off the grid or with a self sufficient farming vibe/community & help out however & where ever i can????

    I'm a fun loving, bubbly & independent individual passionate about cooking & nature... Experimenting with flavour combinations, gardening, harvesting, making preserves & bee keeping (have even made my own mead). Whilst needing to be in nature as much & as often as possible, hiking or trecking & mountain biking... I do enjoy socializing too!! Other than my creativity in the kitchen, I do some leather crafting, sewing and painting.

    I'm happy as long as im constantly learning & am a practical person, have an interest in building with natural materials, doing some carpentry, learning about compost toilets, water management & solar power (really need the opportunity to learn more about these though), enthusiastic about getting my hands dirty & doing physical work. I am fit & strong (for my small build), enjoy eating healthily & with a little meat in my diet.

    Now that it's winter I'd be very happy in front of a fire listening to other's stories, talking, sharing a bottle of wine with a meal and having a good laugh... Always up for a game of cards, otherwise content with a book or even to put a movie on!

    Left my bicycle in France... so no transport at the moment!!

    Regardless let's see if our paths cross...
    Ciao, Lauren
