  • Description

    Hello! I'm Sophie and I'll be spending most of the spring/summer 2020 volunteering on land-based projects in the UK before I start a masters in the human geography of climate change in September. My particular areas of interest are sustainability, green woodworking, beekeeping, crafts, plant and mushroom identification, and permaculture, although I also hope to get stuck in with lots of things that are new to me! I'm hard-working, friendly, and love community life.
