I’m 25 years old, living in Brisbane and am very, very keen to move away from the big smoke and into a more nature-abundant setting.
I grew up on a mountain in the bush so those are my roots, and I’ve been wanting to get back to those roots for years now. I love being outdoors in nature, gardening, adventuring, discovering, learning, getting my hands dirty, having fun, working hard, smiling, laughing, working with people and individually to create a more sustainable and happy environment for all living things.
I’m super friendly, easy going, always have an optimistic attitude and a compassionate approach to life, and my sense of humour is probably my favourite attribute about myself.
Every fibre of my being is calling to a more simple, sustainable and kinder relationship with Earth, I’m open to learning and growing and getting more involved in community and localisation. At the end of the day I just love nature! And to get back to my roots as a human.
Why I joined WWOOF
I have some friends who have done WWOOFing who have told me it was the best thing they ever did.
I’ve been desperate to get out of the city for so long, unsure of where to go or what to do or if I’m sure it’s “what I want” etc, I’ve been hesitant to make the move. But I’m so ready to make that shift now, and I just want to learn and gain more experience in farming as that’s where my passions lie.
I would really love to learn more about sustainable agriculture/permaculture practices as I’d love to one day have a farm of my own on some property, so I’m open to any and all experiences!
Currently I am unemployed and have been for some time, my work experience is as a cook in various cafes, but the food wastage in the hospitality industry was doing my head in and not aligning with my ethics so I quit for a time. The last place I worked at was great – it had it’s own garden out the back and tried to grow as much produce as it could, with composting and worm farms, which I really loved (but sadly they closed).
Ever since then I’ve been wanting to learn more about food production and how to incorporate it into every-day living in a sustainable way.
