Dear Mrs Anne and Erwann Joliff ,

 

My name is Milan Merloz, I'm 22 years old, I come from the Atlantic cost of France and I have been travelling in Roumania with my lovely friend Maria (22 years old - native from Dej, near Cluj-Napoca) since February 2021. After modestly discovered the seeds of Roumanian culture of gardens, and considered with such enthusiasm the peasant lifestyle of Transylvania, I wish to move myself to a more practical approach of organic agriculture. As many of the Wwoofers and as a student of architecture, I feel close to the eco-transition that with have to handle and I consider no better way to learn of alternatives such as a true immersion in a homestead. 

 

That's how I (and we, with Maria, as possible) would be pleased to join you in reconstructing and repairing your house or managing the garden starting on the 13th of June 2021 (for 3 weeks max) subject to your disponibilities and needs. Thanks to our studies, we have already been in contact with such a working site.

We can accommodate ourselves easily with a tent.

It is probable that your announcement on the Wwoof Web Site must have been old, but I extend here my motivation as a probable future Wwoof worker !

 

If you need any more details on me or Maria, I'll be glad to enquire you:

Kind regards,

 

Milan and Maria
