  • Description

    Organic, sustainable farming and hydroponics are my main interests as well as travel, photography and anything based around a stove/oven cooker :-) Qualified in science, I chose an office over a white coat and spend my time improving the user experience of my company's products. I'm currently on a sabbatical break to discover people who are in tune with their passions through Workaway exchanges. When not struggling to speak French, I love to cycle and hike, meet new people, engage in enlightening conversation, explore philosophies, soak up the buzz of a farmer's market, and enjoy good, clean food. I'm looking to share my love of food with the people who do the hard work.. grow this food! And hopefully I can learn from your experience and passion in what you do.

  • What else ...

    I'm interested in exchanges where I can learn practical farming skills, preferably in horticulture. I love the concept of growing and selling your own produce, and learning about different, creative ways to do this. I can bring commitment, a solid work ethic, a good sense of humour, a love for cooking, and an open mind.
