  • Description


    Family of 3 needs help at the mediterranean cypriot farm with beautiful mountain and sea view in land improvement and applying permaculture principles. The farm belongs to my parents. 67 and 68 years old. I am 40. They live at the farm. I live with my partner in the capital Nicosia. My mother is an artist and a very good cook. My father deals with our family business in Nicosia so he comes and goes to the farm. We have pets but no other farm animals. We are turkish and my parents speak little english. I have written my master thesis on sustainability and I am fluent in English. Also I am a wikipedia editor and have a permaculture design certificate. My partner is greek from Greece and she is a phd architect. She specializes in adobe buildings.
