I am an artist. I have been living off grid in Somerset for 8 years. I have a hectare of land with permaculture, forest garden and 2 horses, with whom I practice natural horsemanship. I have solar electricity and lovely fresh borehole water.
We planted many willows which we harvest to make sculptures and baskets.
I am interested in using the skills I have developed on a larger scale with others in community.
Help with Eco project
They will see a permaculture site that has been developed over the past 8 years and how horses are an integral part of the project. They can learn about natural horsemanship. They can also learn about willow work and ultra violet artwork.
I have had both hips replaced in the last year and my site has become very overgrown and neglected. I am looking for help to get the land back into good heart. This will include hedge trimming, chopping back the brambles,
converting some areas to woodchip and preparing the hotbed for early planting.
I hope to install a better compost loo and hopefully a shower.
Some help with preparing meals would be preferable.
some Spanish and French
Accommodation is pretty basic. The placement would be ideal for someone with a live in vehicle suitable for winter. I do have a large horsebox that could be lived in but would need to have a stove installed.
I would think that meal preparation would be shared.
Frome is a special town with many interesting people, art, music and events, and a strong sense of community.
