  • Description

    Description

    I am from Scotland, but have lived here since 2008 where I have been renovating and bringing back to life an old property with an acre of land on the outskirts of the historic village of Cherven, 35 kms south of Ruse.
    My passion is in developing the organic garden.
    I enjoy having volunteers come to help me and to share this beautiful spot with magnificent views.
    There is always plenty to do including, clearing land, weeding, planting, making compost bins, basic building and loads of ongoing projects which are sometimes weather dependent and whether you have the skills or not.
    There are beds in the house, suitable for singles and couples and there is a caravan with a double bed. There is also plenty of land for camping. I have 2 tipis which will be erected once the poles are prepared. I provide good wholesome food and there is excellent wifi access.
    I am particularly interested in people who enjoy land work and gardening and or basic building trade skills but have generally found that everyone has something to contribute.
    I am flexible in terms of tasks and time input and we can agree what would work for both of us.
