  • Description


    We are a Swedish/Portuguese couple, with two boys (5 and 1 years old), living in a farm in the middle of Skåne, South of Sweden.
    It's a wonderful garden (more like a small park :)) with a large diversity of plants and trees and farm animals like horses, chicken, dogs and cats...
    We are interested in growing vegetables in permanent beds in a ecological way. We also have some fruit trees and berries.

    We have a quite big garden in our farm. It would be great to get some help for taking care of all plants and trees. We also have a 300sqm green house where we mainly grow tomatoes during the summer time and other veggies on raised beds on the field beside.
    Right now during the winter time, we mainly need help feeding the horses and chicken, collect the eggs, clean up the stable and the chicken coop.
    Also prepare the beds for the vegetables, weeding, seeding, and collecting leaves, tree branches around the garden, etc...
    Fixing fences, sorting out stuff and organise the storage room, build a mobile chicken coop, etc...
    Indoors would be tasks like cleaning the house, cooking and playing with the kids.
    So, plenty of things to do! :)
    We both have other chores, with some flexibility, but meaning that you might spend some time by your own in the farm.
