We are a middle-aged couple who run an organic smallholding with vegetables, fruit and poultry.
Alison is due to have a hip operation soon and we need help with cooking/cleaning. Also some help with gardening/horticulture/looking after hens & geese, if you like.
I am a software developer who needs to catch up technically. I would like someone with a good knowledge of Python/Django/SQL and/or HTML, to help me develop an web-based application. I am currently developing the database.
