  • Description

    Description

    My name is Sammie and I live with my mom in a rural area, we have plenty of physical tasks to be done including a large garden that need to get into shape and order with some raised beds, this will provide food for ourselves and volunteers that comes in the next season. Need help for building stone walls and occasionally a bit of fencing too, but the garden is the most important.
    We've got 2 dogs that stay in the house, 5 cats that stay outside and a some goats that we keep for breeding and for meat, but most of the tasks with the animals is my responsibility.

    Please, we ask your patience, maturity and understanding because me and my mother are very busy and need to work a lot, so sometimes it may seems lonely but we have bikes to use, and a lot of views around. We will take you, when it is possible, to the town or another places.
