    Description

    a small farm in the center of France, beautifully situated but with a lot of work to do.
    I'm a professional carpenter and come from a farmers family, so i got the skills required but i lack help as its only me.

    My aim is to have a big garden (organic, permaculture) to provide myself with all the vegetables i need, already in progress.
    I also plan to have some animals pigs,sheep,.. But not too many as it is about self sufficiency.
    So far i have a few chickens a dog and a cat
    I did a lot of volunteering myself , been on about 30 farms, mainly in New Zealand and Australia, so i know how it is from a volunteers perspective.
