  • Description

    I have graduated College with a bachelor in arts and my focus is Architecture, Urban Design, sustainability, being hands-on/DIY! I have been very interested in sustainable practices, as well as farming, and being outside. I plan to take a year off and in the time I want to spend outside learning. I have practiced some sustainable practices in my day to day life such as creating a vermicompost bin. I like to make soap, out of glycerin, but I want to try with lye! I am building my Nomadic table, I want to re-use as much things as I can, one example is I am trying to use melted candle wax to create new candles instead of throwing it in the trash. I would love to learn more!

    This Summer I have spent at an Ecovillage in Sweden named Suderbyn! I have learned a lot about sustainability, gardening, and communal living! I have worked on various amounts of projects at this Ecovillage which were: Rocket-fire stoves, biogas production, sign making, permaculture gardening, communal living, building and spiritual course in Lithuania, sustainable living, and compost toilet!

    I love learning about people and their cultures! I am a very understanding and open person, as well as an equalist. I am rugged person, I love to get down and dirty with the earth, I love doing manual labor ( I am a strong woman) . I have been specifically interested in being welcomed into a community of culture that I am unknown to, and to being totally respectful of their ways!

    At the moment I am studying Environmental Horticulture and Spring and Summer Plant Identification! I am trying to guide my career jobs one that keeps me outside and in the nature! I would love to learn more about herbalism, Apothecary, usage of plants for nutrition or remedies and tinctures, ancestral herbalism, naturalpathic, clinical herb studies. As well as wilderness survival/adventure!

    I like to make art using dried plants to create some kind of landscape!
