Facilitator in the 8thLife Project, Canary Islands 
Languages: native Polish, English and communicative Spanish

Maja has successfully completed a year-long internship program at 8thLife, during which time we started her Design Portfolio, which you can see here.

She worked as the Volunteer Coordinator since 2016, after taking on the lead for the PeDreTea project and in 2018 she took over the role of Farm Manager.

Maja has a Bachelor’s Degree in Horticulture, has spent years learning about aquaponics and working as a gardener, did her first PDC in 2015, and has been studying and practising Integral Permaculture since 2016, focusing on research about Holistic Grazing and its applications.

Maja is also a very gifted graphic artist, and did plenty of illustrations to promote the PeDreTea project and start a crowdfunding campaign to support her own participation in it.

In the eco-village we are really grateful for her great intelligence, clarity of thought, firm integrity and passion for justice.   We have also had lots of fun together with her enthusiasm, creativity and artistic skills, and she is doing a wonderful job as our Animal Systems Coordinator & Volunteer Coordinator, thanks to which we are working much faster at building the soils & improving the infrastructures of the EcoVillage project.
