Hi, my name is Skye, i grew up of Christmas Island a tiny speck in the Indian Ocean, but now live in Mainland Australia. I enjoy exploring nature, yoga, snorkeling and freediving, permaculture, biodynamics, natural hygiene, surfing, running, cycling, reading and learning new things everyday!
Why I joined WWOOF
I joined WWOOF a few years ago and loved the experience although i knew nothing about how amazing the natural world could be. When i came back home i decided to get a degree in horticulture as the university did not offer permaculture. It was very educating, but focused too much on using chemicals and lawn care-which i am not interested or believe in. A lot of the lessons also when directly against my values- like clear cutting native forests, and how “good” mono crops are!
Though WWOOF i have already learnt so much about not only sustainability but improving and regenerating our ecosystems for future generations.
