à la maison
I am wanting to expand my practical experience in Regenerative Agriculture. I have studied and worked in agriculture in Australia, Brazil and the US for over 10 years and just finished a Master of Ecology, but I still find myself unsatiated and yearning for connection and understanding beyond the academic and field knowledge I have acquired in fairly conventional settings. I am looking for experiences where I can get my hands dirty and learn more about regenerative agriculture/indigenous ecology/permaculture/earth rituals, and hopefully in the process, be of service to my hosts and the land they steward.
I have many years experience in biological insect control, specifically using naturally occurring baculoviruses to control pest caterpillars. During these years I provided technical information to farmers and agronomists about their insect control options, organised field trials and visited farmers in the field when they had queries.
I also have been a part of permaculture gardens in Australia and Switzerland, although both were very experimental. I have taken a Growing vegetables permaculture course with Milkwood in Australia and have grown my own vegetables and worm farms in rural Australia for many years.
I definitely still have a lot to learn about permaculture and regenerative agricultural practices, but I hope that the little I do know, as well as my physical labour and creative and practical mind can be of service to a worthwhile project!
Meditating with and walking in Nature are my greatest joys. I also love board games. Especially word games. I love many different genres of music and I love to sing. I love playing sports and doing physical activities such as squash, hiking, swimming , yoga, dancing etc. I love eating and preparing nourishing food and I am a bit of a purist when it comes to what I put in and on my body. I love sleeping under the stars and generally being outdoors as much as possible.

I tend to avoid gluten and dairy but I can also be flexible if the situation requires it. I am pretty happy as long as there are plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables :)
