I am a scientist from Canberra but grew up in the Barossa Valley working on vineyards and with sheep. I miss the lifestyle and love the work and being out in nature
I own a small business, a health a wellness studio in Canberra. I have also worked in a variety of areas from communications, branding and media to Sport Science. I have spent the last few years renovating my house and fitting out shops with my business partner.
I love being exposed to different environments, opportunities, ways to learn and meeting new people. I am an active person, a bit of a doer and love being outside working. Plus, I truly miss the farming lifestyle!
Why I joined WWOOF
It is something I have always wanted to do. I love learning and experiencing new things and challenging myself. I grew up on a property and farming is something I love and am passionate about. Sustainability practices are fast becoming an aspect of life we must all learn to ensure prosperity for the future. I want to see and experience what it takes to be an organically sustainable farm based on the decision making, methods/techniques and efforts required to achieve such results.
