Hello! We are Becky and Finn, 23 and 22 years old, and have recently graduated (June 2021) from Conservation Biology and Ecology Bsc at Exeter University in Cornwall. This summer, we are travelling Scotland with our bicycles to refresh from university, admire Scotland's wildlife, and gain skills and knowledge on sustainable living and food production.
We are calm, stress-free, quiet people. We love spending time in nature, whether that is to forage for useful plants and mushrooms, go hiking, watch birds and butterflies, go camping, or simply to be mindful. We are both passionate about sustainability, and enjoy practicing sustainability in our personal lives. We also see the importance of community and system change, so we often work with friends, community projects, and protests.
Our primary passion is growing food and local food. Finn has been a keen veg grower for the past few years and Becky has more recently realised her passion for growing. We use no-dig, organic principles and also have a strong passion for forest gardening. The dream of ours is to start our own community farm, with integrated agroforestry systems!
Finn's past times include reading, cooking, cycle touring, sea swimming, spoon carving, and preserving the foraged and home-grown food he collects/grows.
Becky has very similar hobbies and enjoys reading, hiking, cycling, practicing yoga (especially being upside down in the form of a handstand!), sea swimming, surfing and listening to and playing music.
Finn used workaways during his gap-year (6 months spent in Nepal and India ) and is excited to return to the workaway world! Becky has travelled lots, including Australia, the Caribbean and Kenya. We would both love to share our skills and knowledge regarding food production, music, handstands, foraging and natural history. We are also keen to have our young (and not yet broken) bodies put to hard work. We are keen to learn practical building skills, and all things growing related (especially the logistics of large-scale growing). Becky would love to learn any kind of arts + crafts, such as knitting or painting!
We can't wait to meet you!

We are mostly vegan, but Finn occasional forages for wild meat. We both have a strong understanding of the importance of local food so are willing to consume most sustainably produced food. Although we are probably very sensitive to dairy!
