  • Description

    Hei! I'm Marika, i'm 30 years old and I come from Mestre, Venice, Italy.
    After a long trip around South-Est Asia and living in Lisbon, I realize that now I want to learn about woodworking and eco-building, but actually, I love in general handcrafts ( Wire jewels, crochet, wood carving, stone painting, sketching and whatever I can create with my hands) but I also would like to know more about permaculture and sustainable leaving.

    I like gardening and it's so satisfying to harvest and eat the product I cultivate.. Also share the recipes:D But I also love indoor tropical plant! I'm vegetarian going to vegan.

    I really enjoyed my past experiences in the hostels, so I love also the places where I can meet new people and learn new languages, cultures, ideas, lifestyles; these meeting make life more intresting and beautiful. So to me the kind of work is not important as the contamination of knowledge, experiences, lives; teach me something and I'll be happy to help.

    I love trying new things and I'm an open minded, curious and smiling girl that is happy to see where universe will bring her.

    My dreams?
    - Work with a mix of my handrafts passion.
    -Do another long trip in South America ( maybe by bike)
    -Have a wood house in the forest
