  • Description

    Hello! My name is Friedrich, (my nickname is Schani) from my surname and I am 28 years of age. I am a intuitive young person who strives for the good things in life like inspiring relationships, knowledge, creative skills and well-being.

    I am a student / researcher of natural medicine, avid permaculture pioneer and traveler.

    I was born in South Africa! Being born and raised in South Africa has taught me through cultural diversity the knowledge of different traditions and customs paired with the skills of adaptability, persistence and innovation.

    I have traveled part of Europe for 9 months working and volunteering in 2012. I see myself as wise and intelligent with a great creative output that bring value to people's lives. This year has brought me the opportunity to share that abroad again!

    I am exploring, studying and farming for the next year and on a journey of re-exploration of my European roots. I am currently writing a M.Sc dissertation in Social Development for Health and Wellness management.

    I have completed my international permaculture design course certificate in 2016 and I have managed my own Workaway project from 2017 - 2020 in SA. Please see my host profile here:

    I want to help like-minded people with similar visions for the world while I am pursuing to expand my knowledge and inspiration about permaculture, ecology and self-sustainability, social development and natural living in harmony with the planet.

    I am a harmonious and productive human-being. I search for opportunities that will benefit me and the world I live in. I enjoy cultivating long lasting relationships and enjoy maintaining a balance of well-being through a mindful lifestyle.

    Being healthy is very important to me and I enjoy doing exercise.
    I am physically a good worker. I can also really enjoy most social settings.

    I am dedicated and proven interpersonal, good communications and multi-skilled person. Adaptable team player with the willingness to succeed and apply independence where necessary.

    I enjoy working with people and on my own while creating, maintaining and preserving good relationships. I am always competent and hard working, ready to expand my skills. I enjoy helping and working with integrity.
