    Hello, right know besides de common task of weeding, harvesting flowers, feeding chickens, gardening maintenance, nursery of medicinals and seed saving, we are in need of one person who could work all the time in a builiding project we are working at the moment. This project is meant to be a mushroom growing place. The walls you will be working on are made out of bales of straw and we are currently putting the clay . That would be the main task and later on we need to divide the mushroom area with the a technique called Tapial(clay, sand lots of grass). So bassically we need lots of hands with that. If you are interested please let us know.
