    Hi!! Melissa here :)

    I'm back in UK for good (as a home base anyways😁) after solo globe trotting around 4.5 years.

    I'm now looking for a home whilst I take a course in higher education to up my doula skills.

    I'm at my best in the wilderness. I like quiet, peaceful space. Especially after travelling for so long I've constantly been around people and in and out of everywhere. Now really desiring a little spot on tranquility to my self for a year or so.

    Im passionate about living with the land and creating from the land as much as we can. I am inspired by working in a sustainable way so projects that are off grid or building with repurposed resources and growing own food excites me :D My main "passion" is wild food and wild medicine.

    My work is a mix of post natal doula support, Ayurvedic massage and free play with kids. I also adore horses and dogs. Permaculture and biodynamics as well as natural material building all really excite me. I'd love to gain more experience with all of these! Lots of interests.

    I think I've experienced about 12 different work aways now and I really love the exchange set up. Super grateful to all my hosts!

    Main focus on exchanges that I love...

    💟 Bushcrafts, indigenous skills
    💟 Foraging, wild food medicine
    💟 Off Grid, sustainable building
    💟 Permaculture, growing your own
    💟 Undisturbed birth, home birth
    💟 Home ed/ Wild ed/ Unschooling

    I like to be open and honest before we agree on the likely tasks and hours before so we know what to expect from each other :) just to keep it clear. Best way in my opinion.

    Any more info your intruiged for please just ask! :)
