  • Description

    Hello lovely hosts!

    Originally from Cambridge in the UK, I made the spontaneous decision to move to France at the end of 2020 and have been using workaway to explore this beautiful country ever since. I love workaway because you have the opportunity to learn and share such a variety of skills and experiences!

    A big passion is mine is sustainability and the environment. I have really enjoyed learning about permaculture and gardening, and am looking forward to learning more - there is so much to discover. It is great to not just talk the talk, but walk the walk! And I must say I am converting from a city dweller to a country person, it’s great to be so close to nature :)

    There is so much to learn and share. Always ready for new experiences and to get my hands dirty! À bientôt!

    I love doing work with my hands especially outside. I can’t wait to continue practicing the gardening skills I’ve learned and learn more!

    Here are some things I’ve done on previous projects:

    Outdoor
    - Afforestation
    - Seed germination
    - Weeding
    - Starting a compost heap
    - Starting a vegetable patch
    - Constructing planters
    - Digging irrigation channels

    Indoor:
    - Removing wallpaper
    - Clearing and reorganisation.

    I have done lots of theatre so would love to work on performance art projects and can share my experience in this area.

    Outside of work, I’ve really enjoyed learning new recipes such as sourdough bread or experimenting with soap!
