I work full time and I need some help on my small farm which I run as a side project. The help would mostly involve gardening and helping around my horses. I only use positive reinforcement training with my horses. In April, May and June there is a lot of work with fences and preparing the garden and the horses for the summer. I have two ponies and two young cats. I grow a lot of vegetables and I try to be as eco as possible. I recently started bokashi (a Japanese composting method) and I would like to do more permaculture gardening. There is always something to mend or need new construction.

You can also learn about positive reinforcement (clicker training) for training my horses.
