I work part time and I need help on my small farm which I run as a side project. The help would mostly involve gardening, a lot of mending since the all the barns are quite old. If you like you can also help with 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. In August there’s a lot of painting, taking away weeds, taking care of berries, fruits and vegetables. I have tree ponies and one cats. I grow a lot of vegetables and I try to be as eco as possible. I do the bokashi (a Japanese composting method) and I would like to do more permaculture gardening. There is always something to mend or need new constructions.
