Greetings folks! I am Mike from the UK, volunteering again after working freelance in Denmark for 3 years. Currently planning the next adventures in Spain and Portugal from January 2020. I'm a green-at-heart, energetic and well-seasoned woofer who loves helping others and participating in exciting projects!
Here's a summary of my recent experience and positions:
Last volunteer positions were 7 weeks at EarthSpirit Centre near Glastonbury, UK, (Nov-Dec 2019 on helpx.net network). 3 weeks were spent in Bordeaux on an organic vineyard doing the harvest and learning wine-marking (Sept 2019, helpx). Earlier in 2019, a fabulous 10 weeks on Fejø island (Denmark, also on Helpx), at another delightful organic vineyard called Hideaway. Yes grapes grow beautifully in Scandinavia!
Previously: 8 years full-time volunteering at Greenheart Spain's ecology centre, Casita Verde, Ibiza. Treasurer of Ibiza Ecologic (NGO). Events Manager, website development and Social Media. Eco-tours guide/organiser. Natural building, ecological vegetable gardens and aloe vera plantations. Healthy vegetarian cooking and carob syrup production.
Greenheart Traveller: 2014-2015: three months in Kenya and South Africa (volunteering and travel), 2012: three months in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Peru and Bolivia (travel and wwoofing). 2010-2 Ten weeks in Maasailand, Kenya (Africa) Installed vegetable gardens (Biointensive method) at primary school, renovation of kitchen, plant nursery. Work on ecological projects: Organic Farm with CSA (Wisconsin, USA), Ecological Hotel (Peten, Guatemala), Organic Gardens (Lake Atitlan, Guatemala), Ecological Farm (Tenerife, Spain).
Ideally looking to assist on ecological farms or community projects, start-ups, vegetarian restaurants, sustainable hotels/hostels etc. However, am an "all rounder" so will consider anything!
Not a meat eater I'm sorry to say. I am happy to cater for myself and can rustle up a veggie feast in record timing. I don't mind a bit of fish every now and then. Have nothing against meat eaters.
Interests: ecology, languages and teaching, computers, healthy food, dance, well-being, music, water sports and travel.
