Hi. I consider myself an ageing hippie, who escaped "the system" in 2008, to grow organic veg., having been a vegetarian most of my life. However I am slightly disabled, and need some help. I have a comfortable small home, s/c guest cottage, level kitchen garden, 6x3 poly-tunnel, some oak woodland, and a cat. I live down a track in an area of mostly oak woodland, olive groves and vineyards, with some beautiful walks. Having completed my project, with help from many workawayers, I spent most of last year in hospital where I had 6cm cut off my femur. This has left me unable to walk without a frame. Fortunately I have had some good help from friends and workaway guests this year, and my garden is full of veg, but I need help both in my house and garden, and marketing my organic produce. Ideally, a long term couple. who can manage my project and profit from it
I look forward to meeting more workaway guests. Gerald.
