  • Description

    Hi there! Naomi or Nomi from Melbourne, Australia, originally from Tassie. I bought a van, quit my job and packed up in Sept 2021 and have done a couple of Workaways over about 3 months since then. I've taken Jan 2022 off and have been enjoying lots of camping and blissing out in nature. I'm in search of developing some building skills and immersive experiences in the great outdoors, and the fine company of like-minded souls.

    I rejoined Workaway in July 2021 after doing some Workaways in Mexico and one in Canada through late 2019 and early 2020. My travel plans got cut in half. I was in the jungle at an Ayuhuasca retreat when covid struck. I landed back in Melbourne, Australia.

    Interests and passions are in permaculture/growing food and wild food foraging. Also very passionate about food and other plant medicine, yoga and meditation. I have some experience in natural building and permaculture. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty! I've loved spending time caring for animals.
    From previous bio: "I'll be starting in Thailand in November, then heading to Canada and onwards to Mexico and Peru. From there, time will tell... At this point I am so open to go with the flow and see where my heart and journey takes me!" ~ and that was as far as I got, but goals are the same. I intend to follow my heart.
