I discovered that Workaway is an amazing possibility to help people, to meet interesting people and acquire new knowledge and skills. I did workaway in Canada, USA, France, Switzerland, Italy and Spain. This spring and summer I worked in the gardens, did renovation, planted and trimmed trees, bilt vegetables beds, cut and repaired lawns, played with children walked with the dogs and so on in BC Canada. I have some knowledge and experience in the design and creation of Permaculture Food Forest, Japanese and Zen meditation gardens.
    Oslo I studied different diets, medicinal plants, different kind of anti-aging therapy, age-related diseases, geroprotectors, anti-aging drugs and so on. I am practicing yoga and Chi Qun, not smoking and drinking.
    I am open to different kind of works and knowledge exchange.
    I’m easy going and friendly man, motivated, peaceful and respectful, positive, optimistic, open-minded, fast and easy learning new skills. I love to work with a team.
    I like the arts, books and music, nature, gardening, cooking and a healthy lifestyle. I am very aware of ecologic problems, green organic agriculture.
