  • Description

    Hi, hello!
    I am Jörg and from Germany. For about 8 years I worked as a language teacher, helping people from all over the world learning English and German. I worked mostly in Asia and Germany. However, at some point I wanted to make some changes and decided to ride my bicycle across Europe, Australia and Northern America.
    I carry two Bachelor degrees, one in English, one in Sociology.

    I am very interested in and concerned about globalization, social justice, environmental issues, healthy living (physically, mentally, spiritually) and I am looking to expand my range of skills. In fields such as housework, simple maintenance, painting, animal care, gardening, natural building, bike maintenance and, of course, language teaching I can certainly be of very good help.

    I have worked on farms and have gathered experience in and knowledge about gardening, vegetable planting, growing and harvesting as well as woodwork, natural building and taking care of animals in general, including herding goats. I really love to he around animals

    Not as regularly as I would like to but still often, I do yoga, work-out and meditate and would be happy to share and coach or help out in this regard, where- and whenever needed.

    About my last travels, I created a blog (see link below) and I really enjoy writing and working a website and can certainly be of good and creative help here, although I am neither a professional web-designer nor programmer.

    My main goal is to become more involved in (organic/ permaculture) farm work and Eco-project work, but i enjoy anything that is related to helping and improving a place. Back home, I have helped with remodelling and renovating entire houses.

    I have a good eye for things that need to be done and a good common sense in how to approach a task.
    If needed, with a little bit of your help and/or instructions, I am happy expand my range of skills and we can both benefit from a nice time and productive work together.

    Warm regards,
