  • Help


    After a quiet wintertime we are eager to continue creating and building our food garden.
    In 2020 we intend to build a new chicken coop and a tool storage. We also intend to build the foundation for a new greenhouse. With that in mind, we are primarily wishing for a person with relevant skills and muscles. Carpentry and masonry skills are keywords.

    Of course, there are lighter works as well, like cooking, help in the garden and general maintenance. It could, in fact, also be working with art projects.
