Gather knowledge and skills for off-grid living
Grew up on the East Coast, but through a series of random events have now found myself living in Ottawa this year :P I'm working part-time as a PSW, and spending the rest of my time working on farms and cabins, trying to learn as much about permaculture and off-the-grid living as possible! I'd love to get my own homestead on the go in a few years so that's definitely a passion of mine at the moment and a big part of my life.
I rent out the main floor of a house with 2 friends, and we are all very excited to get some hosting on the go this year in our new spot! :)
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I first got involved as a host while going to school in Truro, NS. It's a small town... full of the same kinds of people... and just generally not a lot going on. So couchsurfing was an AWESOME way to bring a little excitement to my summers there! And I've been hosting ever since.
