I’m of Japanese origin but grew up in Australia. For 20 years, I was living and working overseas, in Japan, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore. But last year, I gave up my career and came back to Australia to explore a more sustainable way of living. I joined the local permaculture group, Permaculture Sydney North, and have learned a lot over the past 8 months.
My background is in business and finance, but I’m interested in philosophy, psychology, spirituality and of course, permaculture. Hopefully I can use my knowledge and skills in some way to help heal the earth and build a sustainable society.
Why I joined WWOOF
I’m looking for an immersive experience to try different ways of living and hopefully gain hints about what kind of life is calling out to me.
I need to gain lots of practical skills as well, and the best way to do that is through actual work with my hands. Hopefully I can be useful to the host during my stay there, doing whatever work needs to be done.
