We are creative people, we like to play music, creating new things with old material, and we have many skills, i am, Nicole, massage therapist and spiritual coach married to leon, lightning artist and can make everthing whatever you want just by using his 2 golden hands. We moved here in 2017, just 4 weeks before the big fire started in this area. It destroyed all of the land and all our belongings, and also a part of our house and sheds. We have managed to make buildings and nature to become alive and beautiful again. But we have so much things to do, and are looking for help with several things.
    Land / forest cleaning, repare stone walls from buildings, making fences, repare roofs, painting, making an outdoor shower, help in the garden etcetera. We have 3 little dogs, 5 chickens and 2 goats. We own a little caravan suiteble for 2 people. With an outdoor compost toilet.
