We are wholesale growers for the plant nursery industry located in the pictures Lowveld area situated next to the Kruger National Park. I live and work on a small family farm close to White River Mpumalanga , I'm single but have 4 big Dobermans and a cat that lives in the house with me so you will have to be comfortable with close contact with them but not to worry you won't have to share a room with them ,We are constantly upgrading and expanding our nursery and various other jobs are available. If you love plants and getting your hands dirty and a bronze tan then this is the workaway position for you.

Help in the house
You will learn a great deal about propagation ,cultivation of plants while being outdoors in a very beutiful area in south africa. If I can give potential workawayers some advice is to start with a host close to home to get some experience with the whole concept of workaway and then building on some good references that would make me accept you much easier , good references on your profile is 100 times more important then 10 pictures of yourself on a beach.
