Sprouting about.....living and learning :)
I am in the process of connecting with a gorgeous piece of land in North Wales, settling down a bit after 10 chaotic years in the Middle East working in the sustainable farming sector. Now my days are spent rearing cabbages and potatoes, and trying to build up a lovely community food initiative. I'm all about permaculture and sustainable land management practices - and eating amazing food. I own more potatoes than the average citizen!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
For 4 years I was running a big volunteer project in Bethlehem with some friends. We hosted more than 100 couchsurfers there, and they made an amazing contribution to launching our project. Now I have another farm, I'm hoping to be able to bring people in in the same way, share interests and information, do a bit of light weeding, talk a lot and eat a lot. If people are up for giving me a hand on the farm so I can finish my work, I should be able to take them out hiking to see the nice mountains and lakes!
Permaculture, sustainable living, nice music, good people, beautiful parties, fine wine, cakes, politics, crazy plants and beautiful landscapes.
