Nosso próximo destino:Canada - desde Set 2022 até Out 2024 Ver tudo
Hello! We are a British couple exploring Canada (currently BC), on a 2 year working holiday visa, who are keen to learn and experience what Canada has to offer. We are open to opportunities where we get to experience different ways of living - especially when it comes to aligning with nature. We are flexible and both work hard. We would ideally like some free time to explore our creative practices outside of volunteering hours and have our own living space.
We are both keen to get involved and spend the majority of our time outside. We have been hosted by 2 workaway projects so far and really enjoyed the opportunity to learn lots along the way, embrace different methods of growing plants and food, aswell as feeding the animals and getting the opportunity to get stuck into the community.
Some of the tasks we completed whilst on workaway projects so far include:
- Planting trees
- Assisting the building of a 'veg shed'
- Planting plenty of seeds and bulbs
- Feeding animals including - donkeys, horses, sheep and dogs
Pippa has spent time in the garden growing food and flowers and is particularly interested in permaculture and the connection between nature and community. Meanwhile, Ben has spent time working on a farm and doing various DIY jobs and is most interested in learning how to keep a smallholding. Nature and animals are both important aspects of our lives and we are keen to learn about sustainable ways of growing food and being. We appreciate simple living, good conversations and ending the day with a fire or a good sunset spot.
Outside of day jobs, Ben is a Non-Fiction Writer and Pippa is an Illustrator. Pippa would be very interested in using her skills to paint murals and artworks with a deep interest nature and animals.
