|job wanted in (organic) Farming
I grew up in the Netherlands, in a horticulture and farming environment and moved to New Zealand over 9 years ago and Iím a Permanent Resident.
I have a bachelor degree in Social Work and for 10+ years supported people with disabilities both in the Netherlands and New Zealand,.
What I enjoyed mostly is coaching a client towards more independency, the diversity of jobs to be done, and dealing with unexpected.
Since I did a Permaculture Design Course in 2010, I gained a greater interest to learn more about looking after the land.
For the last 4 years, I continued developing my horticulture and farming skills and knowledge by working in New Zealand, Samoa & Australia while completing a TAFE Diploma in Organic Production and NZQA National Certificate Horticulture level 2 & Certificate in Organics level 3.
In additional farming courses I achieved Level 3 Certificates in General Farm Skills, Rural Health & Safety and Farm Management with a focus on Sustainable Farm Management.
For 2015 I would like to learn more about sheep and beef farming using organic/biological/sustainable farming practices and am looking for paid work, currently living in Franklin area but open to consider other areas.
People who I worked for know me as reliable, flexible, with good organisation skills.
Happy New Year!
