I have always been passionate about nature and the wise use of resources, and over the past few years have become more interested in gardening for food and therapy as well as beauty. I live in a typical suburban rental share house with a small vegetable garden. My background is in graphic design, and I have also studied spatial design which included some landscape design. I’m one semester in to completing my Master of Urban Horticulture at Burnley. Most of my plant propagation and care knowledge comes from the few months I volunteered at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens nursery. I believe that everyone should have access to green space and be able to grow their own food regardless. I love hiking, dancing, swimming and experiencing different cultures.
Please note that I don’t have my own transport, and I’m on a learners licence. Non-smoker preferring to stay with other non-smokers.
Why I joined WWOOF
I would love to learn more about permaculture living and biodynamic growing in relation to Australian native plants, regenerative agriculture and urban/peri-urban food production. I’m keen to get stuck into a specific project or just to help with the day-to-day running of a farm/garden. I am also planning on building a tiny house in the next couple of years, so am keen to get some basic construction experience.
