Hi I am Eva, originally from the Netherlands but living in France for more than 30 years now. I am already 44 years old and I had a life full of experiences.
I am joining Workaway with the goal of get involved with people in their agro-ecologic projects that I care for. More particularly in tropical climate because I live in a temperate climate and I want to discover their specific biotopes.
I would describe myself as an open minded person, very curious about almost everything that’s why I can’t stop learning (I am a High Potential person or a Zebra as they say). I am highly interested in Nature, plants, mushrooms and animals : biology and botanic are some of my passions. I have an entrepreneur mindset, I own the hypersensibility of an artist, a big amount of empathy coming from my education and I like to socialize.
I had several professional lives : I was first an track and field athlete (running 400 metres) than I became a coach as fitness instructor, physical and mental trainer and opened my own small business (you can follow some session videos on Youtube « Humanus & Corpus Coaching » and visit my old website (https://humanuscorpuscoaching.wordpress.com).
I am also very into Arts : I practice drawing and painting(I made some Illustrations, Comics and storyboards you can see here : http://asubakatchinillustrations.blogspot.com).
And into music : I composed, wrote and performed 27 tracks, you can listen to my music here : https://soundcloud.com/la-nouvelle-eve) or visit my website : https://lanouvelleeve.fr .
I love writing (scripts and stories) and I love photography (Nature is my favorite subject) and video making (shorts, documentary, clips, making of…). I created my one Audiovisual Production Company and developed several skills as a camerawoman, a director, a productor, an editor… And I worked 7 years for the French Center of Cinematography in Paris as a projectionist operator.
Since 2010, I decide to get involved with ecology, blue economy (Gunter Pauli and his ZERI Foundation) and I began to learn about an alternative way of living that I find through Permaculture. I followed some PDCs (Permaculture Design Course in French and English) and I organised the first PTM (Rosemary’s Morrow « Permaculture Teaching Matters » check the link : www.castelforgues-formations.webnode.fr/formation-fep-ptm/ ), then I became a Permaculture Teacher and Designer myself.
The two last years with the Covid issues, I focus on new ecological knowledges and get in touch with two fabulous agro-ecology applications with ecosystemrestorationcamps.org Ecosystem Restoration Camps is a grassroots non-profit organisation that seeks to transform damaged landscapes into thriving, biodiverse ecosystems. And Syntrophic Farming (Ernst Götsch’s Agroforestery method https://agendagotsch.com/en/).
Since June 2021, I am involved in a permacultural project in the French Pyrenees mountains. I am helping my mother to renovate an off grid barn, in a forest, at 750 metes high altitude, with 2.5 square meters land. The idea is to reach full autonomy (energy, food and water) in a sustainable way and to create a food-forest.
The barn is 120 years old and was build by the ancestors of the village of « Cominac » nearby with « dry stones » in the pure traditional way.
This new experience is so incredibly rich because we are developing so many new skills around eco-construction given that we have decided to use only green sourced materials and some old craft techniques.
For example I managed to set up a whole photovoltaic kit with 3 solar panels and to insert windows then to isolate them.
I discover that I really like to be challenged since there are every day new technical problems to resolve here ! So I need to be practical and very creative to find solutions. With my mum, we have to live in a quite primitive way as we camp on site !
