Japan, New Zealand, Thailand
07/07/2019 - 31/10/2020
My name is Lily and I’m from Ireland. I recently quit my job in landscape architecture to pursue an old dream of traveling to Japan, South East Aisa and New Zealand.
I volunteered with workaway in Europe a few years ago and really enjoyed the experience. I found it a great way to give back while travelling, explore away from the big cities and meet people while traveling. So, I decided to try it again on this trip.
Ideally, I want to volunteer on projects where I can spend time in nature, gardening or creative arts and crafts.
I am particularly interested in learning about permaculture and growing food organically. I have some experience already, I worked for almost a year on an organic farm in the UK and I have a degree in landscape design. I also did a permaculture design certificate course in Portugal last July. I would like to get more practical experience and learn about gardening in different cultures.
I also enjoy creative hobbies such as drawing, painting and embroidery. I would be really interested in working on a project where I could try traditional crafts such as weaving, pottery, print making, basketry or wood work.
