    Hello/Bonjour/Sawadee Krap!

    I'm a Canadian traveler happily "stuck" in New Zealand and looking for some projects to get further stuck in! My main interests are plants and how to cultivate and use them, but I am also focused on learning anything related to sustainability, self-sufficiency, and community living.

    Currently myself and two friends are looking for a place to spend at least part of the winter. We're a very sociable group and are craving somewhere where we can mix with active, driven people.

  • More details about your skills

    My main area of expertise and interest is botany. I studied Plant Biology in school and have done plant-related work ranging from weeding to plant identification to tree bud grafting.

    I also enjoy working with people and can even handle large groups of kids and teenagers! I have worked and volunteered as a river raft and kayak guide for outdoor school trips, and would do it again in a heartbeat.

    This summer has been a big one for me, I have spent a lot of time living in communities and volunteering with festivals and burns. I particularly enjoyed the safety and harm-reduction roles I was involved in; I helped as a Ranger and in the Sanctuary/well-being tent.
