About Me


The most important thing is to seem.and to meet several people,that is to meet a no end wealth. I have a little dream, thus I need a big vigour is the exchange with others!


Hi!I'm Anna. Actually, I'm a farmer - a strange kind of farmer. I'm also a cooking teacher - foraging, wild food, vegan food, teaching both professional chef and non professional people; I work too as a chef, a journalist and sometimes as author and translator (from English and from French). I'm finishing to study medecine. I like wild Nature and I think it's better to watch and to cooperate with environment, than to change and destroy it! My dream is to conjugate my mains passions, i.e. to work in Social Farming.
I like experience in home garden, in vegan kitchen, in bathroom because I like self-sufficiency. I try always a conscious use of things, also ordinary things. They have often many extraordinary uses..It's also the title of a book ;-)
I like books, films (especially at cinema) but I like mainly real men and women..


When I was born, my eyes were already open ;-) I like contend with problems, enjoy people and Nature!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hope meet several people to share experiences, philosopy, lifestyle. I love deeply the people's stories. I'm waiting for yours! Also, when I travel I'd like to discover the local lifestyle. I don't like to be the classical, foreign tourist!


Unfortunately,I traveled very little...I hope it change.I
was generally at friend's home, it's important to can live the indigeneous'life. My Cs a glance, it's my life's philosophy :) Great!


Nature, nature, nature...People...people...people.It's same place of importance, and I think the wonder and the respect for environment and for people is the same!
Social farming. Seed saving.Décroissance joyeuse.
Sustainability.Self-sufficiency, also in town!
Art - every kind of art.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I conceived my babies.
I love sprouting vegetables and seeds. It's the cycle of life! See the photo.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach foraging, wild food but also vegan, raw and macrobiotic style of cooking and philosophy. Now, I'm looking for a good school of medical application of raw food.
