Good day, Thank you all for your interest. Here is some info about me (that's also my first post):

I am Reinhardt RENATI holtzinger, 29 years old, born in Toulon (France) where i lived until i was 2 years old. Mum is a chemist and dad is a former french Navy deep sea diver and captain.When dad retired from the Navy, he took my mum, baby brother Ludwig and I to live on the island of Tahiti. This is where i grew up and started learning about Life a very natural and innocent way. Climbing to the tree tops (not affraid of heigths), eating fresh fruits ; Snorkling in the lagoon and diving in the open waters amongst coral reefs, manta rays and perrot fishes ; Learning traditionnal weaving, crafting, building and cooking.
I had been working from the age of 13 in a « crêperie » after school to make a little money ; i worked a lot in hospitality until 19 y.o. before i got sick of it ; then i did various jobs, i started a business, with my companion at the time, selling and reparing watches, and then i met Michel : he had a vanilla plantation on the Island of Taha’a and a store in Pape’ete where everything was handmade. He taught me how to make soaps, candles, inscents ; how to grow, dry, keep, sort, massage, calibre vanilla and make « vanilla anything ». Up to this day he is a mentor to me. Then i became sales manager for Tahiti Vanilla Market. One year later, i flew off Tahiti to start a journey in Australia.
Before that, i had been to the U.S. and to France a couple of times with my parents to visit familly, i’ve lived for about a year in french speaking Canada from 5 to 6, and i had been to New Zealand (the closest place to fly to from Tahiti) on my own four times from 15 to 20. I had travelled a fair bit before going to Australia.
There i spent the first 8 months getting an English diploma (that allows me to teach in CW countries), after what i attended university. I enroled in an Environmental Sciences and Engineering course where i studied ecology, geology, chemistry, climatology and so on. I loved it but it was too academic for me after no school for 6 years or so, and way too expensive. So i quitted after the first year and went on to learn Sustainable Agriculture in a farm school in a nature reserve … it was a life changing experience ! it really openned my mind to a whole new dimention to Life ! i spent a bit over a year there, the time to get the Certificate of Permaculture under my belt. After that i spent the last 4 months of my trip in Australia helping out an environmental plumber : Trout, to me he is a brother and my second mentor, he helps people setting their off-grid life. I took the plane to come to Europe.
There i visited South of England, France, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, North of Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, and Bulgaria, going everywhere hitch-hiking, following my heart. I mostly attended environmental and social projects, essencialy helping associations to manage their waste as i am good at this. This allowed me to pretty much live for free the whole time, trading my creativity and skills for food and shelter. I did a lot of dumpster diving also. I spent most of 2016 volounteering for an association that holds a ressourcerie . I think this is all too fresh for me to fully realise how good this was.
I had been away from Tahiti for over 6 years. I have been building up skills and researching to create a sustainable project about Miconia, a fast growing plant from Central America that invaded Tahiti and covers around 80% of the Island, and that spreads in all tropical zones in the Pacific Ocean. I want to dedicate my life forth doing my best about that and help people reconnecting there lifestyle to the land they live on and make community. Once I am set up, that is what i will use Patreon for. I'll probably need more money then.
It is good to be home.
I’m pretty eager to learn anything practical.
I also practice chi qong, taïchi, and aïkido. I am very friendly and i am full of energy ! i can use it in action when needed or to explore my inner universe during quiet times. And to cook delicious meals.
I speak French, and English fluently. Good at Tahitian créole, learning traditonal Tahitian. I get a fine spanish after a few days of practice.
Here i try to live with the least need for money as possible, by all organic and/or salvaging ways.
Oh ! and let me tell you that i am happy to live !! Life is a miracle to my eyes.
I love to share a good laugh.
there is more to say and plenty more to do ! let us get together !
