Hello, I am Frances.
I'm trying to expand my knowledge of permaculture, foresting, building and all things that can and should aid to a life of sustainability in a natural setting via Workaway for some years now. After my bachelors in Child Development and Education, it was time for a change in the routine of Amsterdam-life and me and my partner at the time decided to leave the country with no clear destination or end-date. In over 1,5 year a lot has happened and we have experienced an unimaginable journey. Living in Malaysia for several months working on a rice farm, traveling to Indonesia and trying to make New Zealand our home.. words fail to explain.
Currently back in the Netherlands and studying a master Youth at Risk at the University of Amsterdam, but feeling ready to move on again soon :)
The main thing I offer is enthusiasm and willingness to learn! As far as relevant skills I already obtained go;
I've made and tended gardens in Malaysia, New Zealand and the Netherlands. I do know a bit about compost and soil as well, but have never experiences a full compost cycle from start to finish. Right now I'm experimenting with vermicomposting in my apartment!
I can cook and enjoy doing so, like to read and have a steady yoga practice. Also, I don't require a high level of comfort, and try to eat plant-based when possible.
Any more questions, please ask! I would love to meet you soon.
