If the opportunity arises, why not live this experience with another helper!
One thing is certain, I want to woof in France, either at the start of the year (so a little at the last minute), or this summer depending on the opportunities.
Hello everyone !
Here's a little presentation to learn more about me and why I signed up for HelpX :)
Where and when :
My availability is very wide because I do not yet know exactly how my 2020 will go. I would like to help either at the start of the year - so yes at the last minute - (January / February) or this summer, for one / two / three weeks in one place.
Currently I mainly look at the projects in progress in Ariège: I spent time there this summer (notably in the hot springs of Ax-les-Thermes and Mérens-les-Vals, and around Castillon-en-Couresrans, also at Mas d'Azil) and I loved the landscapes and the people I met there. That's why I really want to go back there to see what winter looks like.
I am currently in Montpellier (Languedoc Roussillon / Hérault / Occitanie) where I have always lived, born in a Mediterranean family.
My helper project:
I would like to help on a human-sized, plant-centric place, where there may be additional milk production (in other words, no meat production), that aim for a certain autonomy (food, energy, etc.).
The quality of life (food, air, physical form, human contact, environment) offered by this experience is a great source of motivation.
My personal goal is to carry out useful activities that make sense on a daily basis (after leaving studies that ultimately did not correspond and that ended up looking absurd). Physical tasks do not scare me despite my small size, I like effort and a job well done.
This is the first time that I consider such a project, so my potential is waiting in order to develop skills in the farming field.
That said, I know a little bit about the agricultural environment thanks to a part of my family that produces honey (and before goat cheese) in the Cévennes.
A few details about me :
I am very comfortable with animals and love spending time with children. French is my mother tongue, I try to maintain my English and I surely have some Spanish remnants which allow me to understand Portuguese and Italian more or less.
I prefer to eat vegetarian / vegan most of the time and I love to cook, so I can even show you recipes if you want and it will be a pleasure to cook together. I don't know how to play music, but I love hearing it and seeing musicians. My artistic side is expressed through drawing and painting, so even if I don't intend to take too much tools with me, I would be delighted to participate in an artistic project if there was one.
In my spare time I would love to explore the surroundings if the weather permits and with your advice of course, even better if we can do it together. Otherwise I would surely have a lot of books in my bag and I never say no at a moment together by the fireside, for example around a board game.
Important information: I have neither a car nor a license, so I travel by bus / train / carsharing as much as possible but it can happen that I ask to take me or come to pick me up at an access point to public transortation (here Tarascon-sur-Ariège or Saint-Girons).
Thanks for taking the time to read and don't hesitate to contact me :)
