Hey I am Marc, I am 24 years old, a qualified roof carpenter, a skateboarder, vegan. In mid 2019 to early 2020 I travelled England and Scotland solo.
Wwoofing at a Buddhist center in Doncaster, a farm near Plymouth, An organic orchard near Manchester, and a remote croft on the isle of Lewis before having to come home. My time wwoofing in the UK was awesome and I really enjoyed it. It showed me another way of travelling and meeting new people.
I love food, and I want to learn how to organically grow my own. I want to learn everything there is to know so one day I can be as close to self sufficient as possible.
Why I joined WWOOF
I joined wwoof to help out on farms, to learn how to grow organically, to meet cool new people and do something a bit different.
It is my dream to one day have my own bit of land and grow my own food, so the skills I learn now wwoofing will be so helpful acheiving my goal.
I was born and raised in Karrinyup, in the suburbs of perth and want to get back in contact with more sustainable and authentic ways of living.
