  • Descripción

    We are Liv and Dan, both 33 and from the UK. Last year we returned to Europe after living in Hanoi for 5 years working as English and science teachers. This year Liv wants to study Violin making in Cremona and Dan will be teaching English in Spain.

    We are interested in cooking, nature, sustainable living, making things, languages, literature, music, science, and arts and handicrafts. We would love to learn more about sustainable living and producing food. We both have professional experience cooking, (Dan for 4 years and Liv one a year). This includes working in German and Mexican restaurants in Berlin, winter season work in Switzerland and community projects such as cooking for homeless people, festival crews and for events. In addition Liv also sold homemade vegan products, such as cheese and cakes, at markets while we have been living in Hanoi. We have UK Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene qualifications and know how to deep clean a kitchen.

    We are both CELTA-qualified English teachers and each have six years experience teaching English from kindergarten up to adults preparing for their IELTS exams. Liv also has experience working in alternative education from her time in India working for Engineers Without Borders. We have also worked as sign-painters and stage builders as part of the team for Quest festival, a community-based arts and music festival here in Hanoi.

    Liv learned how to make a guitar with a luthier in Hanoi, and in addition she is also a qualified Day Skipper with experience at sea. We would love to gain more expertise in permaculture, off-grid living, cooking and producing food and products, eco-building, woodwork, and DIY. We really enjoy getting involved in DIY projects and we learn quickly with people willing to demonstrate safe working techniques.

    During last autumn we were travelling by car as Dan has a full UK driving license. We have participated in numerous HelpX, projects before, mainly focused on sustainable living, in Spain, Italy, India, UK, and Ireland. These were all fantastic experiences and helped us to learn a lot of different things. Throughout the projects we learned some basic woodwork skills, about permaculture, foraging, growing vegetables, roof-tiling, mosaic work, laying paths and turf, animal care, plastering, painting, examples of eco-build techniques (specifically working with mud and straw) and much more.

    We have also done three Workaway projects. Liv spent one month at a cat sanctuary and two weeks at a hostel in Malaysia, Dan worked on an organic farm in Germany for 3 weeks, and then we both spent a month working at a restaurant and bar in Malaysia.
