    We need help to continue the development of the destination including planting and development of the permaculture garden, landscaping, building maintenance.

    It would be preferable that you are an independent person or a couple and that you don’t mind working on your own, although we are here to show the work and guide you through it.
    The work can be a little demanding and require a little muscle, but not beyond normal good health. If you have experience from gardening or carpentry, it can be an advantage but not a requirement. We teach you what you need to know.
