  • Descripción

    Hello there! This is Will and Ryan, we're two folks trying to live a mindful, compassionate life connecting with nature and community.

    Will is loving the life of a travelling volunteer / roaming artist. She is interested in permaculture and sustainable living, minimalism and mindful movement / working / living.
    Always keen to learn, she loves the chance to gain new skills and respectfully offer what she has already learnt.
    She loves looking after plants and animals (and people, when they need it), making things out of wood and other materials (furniture, fencing, structures) and clothes, drawing and journaling.

    Given the chance Ryan would probably spend most of his time outside. He loves physical work and is interested in learning more about sustainable community living and more chances to grow food, feed chickens and make stuff out of the natural materials all around. He loves being an active part of a community and jumps at the chance to offer a nice meal to everyone, as cooking is a big passion.
    Mindfulness and Zen Buddhism are strong factors in his life, trying to bring a bit more peace and joy to the world.
    Wood carving, basketry and making music on things with strings are but a few of his interests.

    Our Values
    We truly believe we have a duty to preserve the earth and other species, and have been involved with some peaceful protests as well as working to shrink our own footprint and exploring alternative, less wasteful ways of living and travelling, which is part of what led us to Workaway.

    Our Experience
    We are learning more and more as we go. We have experience with looking after chickens and ducks, sheep and goats, dogs, cats, and horses.
    We can build durable fences for birds and horses, sew, plant out and weed vegetables, turn or open the earth, construct beds and help with harvests of beans, carrots, potatoes, cabbage and more. We have worked on permaculture and no-dig projects and are growing our knowledge in that field. We have some experience with eco-building including lime rendering, budget roofing and pallet construction.
    Will has also done some drawing workshops and art tutoring with kids, and enjoys sharing her knowledge with people of all ages. Ryan has worked for Bristol City Farm and helped run a co-operative community kitchen. He is happy to cook for medium to large groups.

  • Que habilidades tienes?

    Thanks to a couple of varied lives and our continued travels we've gained quite a few good skills for living off the land and in sustainable communities!

    We've looked after friends' smallholdings, we've been involved with urban gardening projects, helped with permaculture and no dig gardens, looked after animals from chickens to horses and much more that you can talk to us about. All that said one of the main things we offer is a want to connect, learn, get stuck in and get muddy!

    We've a love for making things out of natural and recycled materials, from turning a bunch of brambles into a lovely basket to carving something out of that bit of waste wood you've got lying around or turning an old sheet into a practical shopping bag. These are some of the sorts of things we're passionate about and maybe we can teach a few things (you'll at least probably end up with something we make!)

    We've both some skills in making and building, we've built animal enclosures, done a lot of fencing and even helped build someone's house! Painting and decorating, basic carpentry (we both made our own beds!) and the like.

    We like to try and bring mindfulness into our everyday lives and come at things with a spirit of community and compassion so we hope that wherever we stay we will learn, teach and make good connections. We aren't full mindfulness teachers, but we would be happy to share our practice and meditate together if you are interested in that.

    Ryan - I can happily help you with your English and am currently trying to get my (very) rusty french to a much better level! Will - Fluent in both Dutch and English I can help you with either, having some experience of teaching languages. Also if I can get help with my French that would be great!
