  • Description

    Hey everyone,
    I'm a 25 year old student from Germany currently planning my summer. I just started my Master's degree in the Study of Religions and Cultural Anthropology after spending six months travelling through Canada and volunteering on various farms there.
    I've been really interested in alternative ways of living, working and consuming for quite a while now, especially in self-sufficiency. I found it quite difficult to realise many of the amazing ideas I've come across in my everyday live as a student and am therefore very happy to have been able to gain more experience and knowledge last year. I value respect, honesty and kindness in my relationships and I think it's incredibly important for everyone of us to care about what's going on in the world and with the people around us.
    Looking forward to meeting you!

  • What skills do you have?

    During the months I spent on homesteads in Canada I was able to learn quite a bit about raising livestock and caring for animals. Milking goats and making cheese were some of the most amazing things I had the chance to enjoy and learn about. I also gained some experience with gardening - outside and in a poly-tunnel - and have developed a fair share of weeding skills! Additionally, I often make my own hygiene products like deodorant, washing detergent and tooth paste - trying to reduce the negative impact consumption has on the environment just a tiny bit. I've recently made soap for the first time, too!
    I also gained experience in personal care during a year of volunteering with a disabled young woman for whom I also did housework, some paper work, cooking and generally helping to make her everyday life easier. I guess I'm a fairly good cook (and I really enjoy cooking) even though I won't be able to pull off a four course meal for twenty people ;)
