My family is starting to develop a eco farming: we have started to create the space for garden, fruit trees, hens, 8 horses (and a newborn foal), all in 9 hectares of grassland and a little forest. We would like to start to make a bigger vegetable garden.
We have several projects to choose helping:
- Support at home to collaborate at home with regular activities, and maybe support some activities with children (they are home schooling but we organize always social activities or sports)
- Support on day to day activities: feeding hens, collect firewood, repair things
- Recycle materials, collect garbage or cleaning common areas
- Expand and improve the vegetable garden
- Collect and store/dry (or eat!) tree fruits: apple-pears-raspberries-plums-cherries-nuts
- Help to arrange tools, and materials stocked
Other ideas are to prepare a greenhouse and rebuild/repairing some buildings and cover for the animals.
We would like to share/exchange experiences and we have enjoyed past experiences with workawayers and woofers. All have been very positive and we enjoyed diversity and respect, sens of humour, from all types of persons.
Important: Beside the support with the farm activities, we expect to share food, and common spaces, so we expect that the person/s hosted ->>collaborate- with the common activities (support to:) prepare food, cleaning common areas, cleaning dishes, taking out garbage, compost...
