  • Description

    My name is Margon, I was born in the Netherlands and I grew up on a dairy farm. I have studied Tropical agriculture rural development. After my studies I did a world trip of 8 months. When I returned back to the Netherlands I found a job in an office and worked there for more than 10 years. I always felt that that job wasn’t suitable for me. I need freedom and adventure.
    I quit my job in 2017 and became an Art and English teacher in China.
    Now I am looking for a place closer to nature. I want to go back to my roots, which is farming and I want to be surrounded with nature, forests or the ocean.
    I like meeting new people.
    I am a creative person and I love to make things out of trash (upcycle/recycle) and I am handy with tools. I did a tattoo course in China and I am very grateful for all the people I have met, who I could give a tattoo to practice my tattoo skills. I love being outside. I am eager to learn new skills.
