    We'd love some help from you with gardening and weeding and watering (all on rainwater!) with extensive veggie gardens to tend and grab the eggs from the chooks. Keep the dog company and plant some natives in our subtropical rainforest project. An out door shelter project and seperate gazebo also on the ''to do" list
