Instead of rushing from place to place, WWOOFing gives me the opportunity to take things slow and get to know not only the place but also the people who reside there. I look forward to connecting with likeminded people and it gives me a chance to learn unique skills that I cant necessarily learn anywhere else. Things I am interested in learning are: -The different ways everyone grows food in regards to different climates within 'Australia' To expand my mechanical knowledge where possible (this is where I am weakest) -How to milk goats -How to ride a horse (lifelong obsession of mine) Most importantly I want to learn how to be self sufficient, I acknowledge that we are facing a global climate emergency and that things are most likely going to get harder from here. I am most interested in those of you who are living off grid as I very much doubt that the food systems most 'Australians' currently use will support us in a future of declining resources. I am here to learn from you.

I would love to learn more about permaculture living 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.

I'm looking forward to the opportunity to meet interesting people (both wwoofers and hosts) around the country and share experiences, knowledge and ideas. I'm keen to learn new things and help out where I can. I've done a little bit of wwoofing in the past (not for a while), and I'm hoping to meet more like-minded people and contribute positively where I can. I'm particularly interested in learning more/helping out with self-sufficiency/off-grid living, sustainable homes/building, permaculture (keen to get a practical overview), soil, 'alternative' living arrangements, animal care (wildlife and domestic, particularly horses), ecotourism, bikes/cars/mechanical things, and other practical skills. I'd like to offer my skills and time to assist others where that would be useful for their work, property, or sustainable/enviro-friendly goals.
