    Description

    Hello!
    My name is Lee, I started my project about 2 years ago.
    My vision is to create a food forest, and host gatherings, events, and guests in the future
    I'm inviting you to participate in my project, a permaculture vegan farm.
    Have an opportunity to learn about farming, gardening, landscaping, and building.
    I'm looking for independent and responsible helpers who can learn fast and work on their own.
    On the land, there are some fruit trees, electricity, basic WIFI, and water from the well.


    The minimum stay is 3 weeks.

    You need to have a driver's license

    I currently prefer a couple than a single volunteer.
