    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    LOOKING FOR A LAST MINUTE WORKAWAY from 15/8 to 26/8 - a week in those dates. Then you :)
    Hello! I'm Claire and I currently live in Oxford. I am passionate about the living world. I currently work as a teaching assistant, but I'll be starting a PhD in freshwater ecology in October. Over this summer (2019) I'll be travelling in Spain, France, Italy and Greece. I have volunteered a lot before in wildlife conservation, environmental education and farming, both in the UK and overseas. I'm hoping to carry on volunteering and building up my skills so one day I can have a farm of my own, which I would run with nature in mind. I'm currently really interested in learning about traditional farming/smallholding practices (arable and livestock), crafts, permaculture, organic farming, rewilding. However, I'm happy to muck in with just about anything - I love children, animals, cooking, playing fiddle, singing, dancing, hiking, and being with good people.
