  • Description


    Hi there!

    I am Erika, I am interested in adopting a self-sustaining life and in turn helping others to do so, reducing our impact on the planet. I am currently taking the Earthship Academy in Taos, New Mexico. Wich are radical sustainable living, completely off grid houses built out of trash and natural materials. I love meeting new people and I hope I have the oportunity to keep travelling around the world learning a lot while helping others. I love biking, climbing, dancing and of course being in the nature.

    Mariana is one of my best Friends, she always get me in the craziest adventures. She is a very curious girl who loves being outdoors and active. Her interestd are diverse, if I could describe her just with words would be something like this: trees, fungi, climb, bike, nature, scuba diving, travel, reading and last but not less knit and crochet. The people she loves are many, but she is always talking about her granny, her 10 years old cousin, her sisters and her little niece. If you get to know her you may get surprise to see how strong she is even if she is thin, she is a hardworker.

    We've known each other for 10 years but our hobbies brought us closer together a couple of years ago. We are also interested in zero waste living.

  • Quelles sont vos compétences ?

    (Erika) I am an architect and was working in the area of urban planning and landscape in Mexico. In Puerto Rico I helped restoring an abandoned house where I did different tasks like tarnish some holes, close a window with bricks, cut a tree, removing old paint from a blacksmith structure, painting and more... In the other volunteer I helped with the garden, where I learned some permaculture, built a planter with natural rocks, open paths with the machete, plant some flowers and seeds... In Taos I have learned to build walls with cans, glass bricks made of bottles, tires... Also did some plastering with adobe and worked at carpentry, making cabinets for the Kitchen.

    Mariana is graduated as an agronome, she worked in an organic greenhouse of cucumbers and in a arborist entreprise where she loved to take care of trees, but at the moment she is a kindergarten teacher (which is a very fullfilling job).

    She had volunteered before: fixing up a refugee in a raramuri comunity, serving dinner to the relatives of the sick in the Civil Hospital of Guadalajara, helping in the fire brigades of the forest "La Primavera" in Guadalajara, patrolling turtle nest in Maui.

    We are very easy going and we have lots of energy. She helped me with my vegetable patch at home and we discover that we are great working together, always motivating each other to keep going no matter how tired we were. We like to dream big and push the limits.

    You won´t regret having us!
