About Me

I'm a pretty laid-back, friendly vegetarian. I like cooking and socialising, and would happily spend some time with my host getting to know the excitements on offer in their hometown. I like to laugh and to learn, and I have an ongoing project to collect people's favourite poems.

At the moment I live in the ecovillage and community of Findhorn in northern Scotland. When I'm not lost in the jungle that is my garden, I work with community groups taking action on climate change. I also work for the Global Ecovillage Network, and help to hold occasional permaculture and ecovillage design courses.

What I Can Share with Hosts
