  • Description

    Hello, community! I'm here to learn & meet like-minded people. I don't believe in luck or coincidences- everything is connected in the web of life.

    My dream is to have an alternative farm, to grow my own food, while helping and sharing with people around me, following Permaculture ethics- care of people, care of Earth.
    Within this context, fungi have been my biggest fascination since childhood, when we used to go foraging for mushrooms and spring herbs, with my family, in the forests of Moldova, my home country. Little did I know how much more there is to learn about fungi and how deeply they permeate our world, from our soils to our bodies. It is part of my mission to continue learning and working with them, to regenerate our lands and regenerate our humans.
    So I'd like to join a bigger project or community, where we can work with these values, exchange knowledge, share ideas, and support each other in a meaningful way. I'm open to long-term exchanges or paid jobs, I don't mind relocating for interesting opportunities.

    I've been slow-traveling with WA since Dec 2019, around Spain and Portugal, living at different farms and working with veggie gardens, market gardening & greenhouses, mushroom farming, microgreens, and some Permaculture projects. I also completed a Permaculture design course (PDC) & internship in the Azores islands, in 2020.

    In my free time I like reading books, hiking, foraging, playing chess, and connecting with the local community.
