  • Description

    Hello dear host !
    I hope you are doing good! Browsing the opportunities found on this site is very exciting. In order to have a lovely exchange, I understand the principle of giving great work while being lodged and nurrish. Learning is an important part of my life and being on a farm to found the base of my agricultural knowledge is very exciting for me. I thought about learning agriculture and eco projects in the city of Montreal, and I realised it is most valuable for the host and I to go out on farms, eco-habitats, and help great people while learning important methods.
    Through my studies in civil engineering, the environmental sphere was the most important one to me. As it is my work and wish to shape the environment of our , I believe that respecting the biospere is even more important while doing so. In September I get into a new college to now complete an Organic Production Legumiere Diploma. I am gratefull for the recent amazing experience I had with a community farmstay. The exchange opended my eyes to a way of life fullfiled with sens and care.
    I enjoy hiking, meaningfull exchanges, skiing, painting, watching birds, yoga. Cooking with my family is always source of good moments. I like to think these activities alouds me develop my listening capacity around humans and nature.
    For my well being, I need to connect with nature, to do so I walk my dog in a woodeed area near my house, I go hiking etc.
    Thank you for your time, I hope we get the chance to create great stuff togheter ! :)
