    Hi, this is Rie in Malmö and Lorenz in Berlin. We are looking for hands-on activities which we can contribute to! Please see the details in the description.

  • Description

    Hi, thank you for your attention!

    We are Rie and Lorenz, an open minded couple interested in new experiences in Europe. We are looking forward to working with people and contributing to the community through hands-on activities.

    Rie, originally from Japan, has been living abroad for the last 10 years in USA, U.K. and currently in Malmö, Sweden. She speaks Japanese, fluent English and Swedish. The experience with people from different parts of the world turned her to be international, independent, caring and considerable. She is currently completing her degree in landscape architecture and seeking hands-on opportunities in the field. Her interest is community development through plants and food. She is happy to share her broad knowledge in food from different cultures.

    Lorenz has been living in Berlin for more than 10 years with temporal residencies abroad in Barcelona and Tokyo. He speaks German and English fluently and basic French. He has been practicing as a professional architect with an interdisciplinary approach in all project phases. Being open minded and happy to step back from city life for a while, he is looking forward to contribute his hands and mind to any projects in the field.
