My partner Katie and I are in our 20s, currently WWOOFing in Australia to learn as much as we can from others. I am originally from Adelaide and Katie is from Guernsey (near UK).
We have developed a keen interest in permaculture, syntropics, vermiculture, and sustainable / regenerative agricultural practices. We are learning as much as we can about these principles and ethics in order to live a minimalist, holistic, self-sufficient lifestyle.
We WWOOFed on a farm practicing syntropic methods for 4 months earlier this year, developing skills in agroforestry, planting and pruning tree lines, fruits, vegetables and herbs, no-till methods, composting, etc, followed by a month on a permaculture property in Jiggi, and the last month on a community in Barkers Vale, and had a wonderful time and gained a lot of experience at all of these places. We are keen to continue learning more about permaculture and sustainable living.
We enjoy hiking, gardening, cooking, reading, music and exploring in our spare time and have a spiritual practice consisting of regular yoga, meditation and Reiki. We love meeting new people, living and working closely with others who share our passions.
Katie also has childcare experience and some online marketing / website management skills which she can share with you, and we are happy for some of our working hours to include household work as well as in the garden.
We have our own mobile accommodation if necessary for shorter stays.We are both vegan and are more than happy to cook for ourselves and our hosts.
We’re looking for stays of roughly 1 – 4 weeks, preferably working 5 or 6 hours a day 5 days a week, but we’re flexible.
Why I joined WWOOF
Our primary reason for joining WWOOF is to learn more about permaculture hands-on and to offer our energy and service to this cause. We hope to make connections with like-minded people and explore other parts of Australia.
