Currently in Australia with a Working Holiday Visa. I’m from Switzerland. I’ve worked as a primary school teacher for the last 6 years and decided I needed a little break from the daily teaching life. I really enjoy travelling and I’ve been to a lot of different places before setting my foot in Australia. Volunteering is a great way to discover a country and it’s culture. I’d definitely say that I had more fun during my volunteer experiences then on my work-paid jobs.
I would like to experience outdoors work. I enjoy nature and being with animals. I like to be helpful, useful and working in a team. Among my past volunteer occupations I’ve built a classroom for a hill tribe community in Thailand and I’ve volunteered in a dog shelter (you can read about my experience here: https://banoboun.org/en/volunteering/). I’ve already had one amazing WWOOF experience in the High Country (East Gippsland), where I was helping in mulching, weeding, picking fruits and vegetables and some handy work around the house.
Music, running, hiking, outdoor activities, films, reading, piano, volleyball, skiing are among my hobbies.
Looking forward to meet you !
Why I joined WWOOF
I think WWOOF is a good way to make yourself useful and get to know about permaculture, local life, people and the country at the same time.
I got very much interested into permaculture during my first WWOOF stay and I would be happy to start my own veggie/fruit garden when I get back home.
