I am a 29 year old South African living in Melbourne. I am taking a short break between my regular working job and my next one to really have a more hands on experience to life so I can start to simplify my life. I am a civil engineer and have always worked in the construction industry where it is always fast paced and chaotic – i would love to use this opportunity to slow down and just enjoy a simpler lifestyle. I enjoy hiking and mountain biking in my spare time, and I also am part of an amazing basketball team. I am quite a social person and enjoy having meaningful conversations and learning about the lives of other people. I have always dreamed of having my own small farm but I realised that I have almost no experience in it so I would really like to start learning so I can start to be more confident and make moves to achieve my dreams.
Why I joined WWOOF
I would like to meet people and gain insight into other lifestyles.I am really keen to learn about living on a farm and the daily skills/struggles that are needed. I would love to some day have my own farm and would like to learn from others about how they started.
