    Hello before you read any further please go to

    and check about the travelling into Saint Lucia protocols. I am not a registered quarantine area so you are on your own for this part and we can meet after you fulfill government protocol requirements. I am unable to answer questions about this. If you have more questions concerning that you should be able to get the answers from the travel company you use or the above website.

    Ok continue reading now.

    The eco village project is off but I have other, albeit less glamorous, projects around home that need as much ideas and inspiration as work done, such as signs design or painting and designing decorating or gardening (starting from an ugly mess of wild bush and grass) and house renew/decor with a heavy need for ideas for de-cluttering.

    Sometimes I do random litter clean ups alone or with friends, if you are willing these ALWAYS need doing. This is an ecofriendly gesture for the world at large and sometimes the dogs might unwrap a garbage treasure they have found and leave the bits in the yard.

    It is possibility, sleeping will be in a tent. We are cannabis smokers and eat vegetarian, sometimes fish or seafood. the environment is quite bohemian. I'm very flexible and eager to please I might be just as happy following your suggestions or ideas, so bring them!

    Garden stuff
    The garden should be capable of producing some forms of food, instead it is overgrown in bush, vines and wild grass (recently cut). I would like to restore it to its former beauty and grow some vegetables to eat as well. maybe a few flowers for beauty. and make it a place to feel relaxed. I don't want to use chemicals like glyphosate so the vines have to be removed from the fences regularly. There is a hydroponic project planned for early 2021.

    I have gathered some materials and continue to gather materials for making garden furniture. Pallets and branches.

    You can set your own tasks.
    I rarely have preplanned tasks so I prefer if you are able to decide a project and carry it out. i'm very interested in your ideas and I invite as many of us as needed. Usually I can get help and labour to assist if necessary.

    Maybe be installing solar panels and systems in rural or other areas. Soon. Some of our solar off-grid installations target some or all of SDGs 1-5, 7-13 & 17.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    learning about native species and or food and handicraft, enjoying and inspiring beautiful surroundings and artistic environment to create a beautiful space where currently, there isnt one.

    I usually go to the fresh fruit and vegetable market in castries early on saturday mornings about 5am. Its a nice experience if you are a morning person you should enjoy this.

    I enjoy making bowls from calabash/calbasse fruit. and most likely we will pick some and cut them and clean them out and carve designs into them. it is a fruit that forms a wooden bowl.

    The ecovillage project is closed off. consequently i can no longer supply the bounty of organic fruit and veg of the farm. yes I am disenchanted about this. meals are fewer and more meagre now. That is one of the things I would like to remedy. plant some vegetables

    I still welcome workawayers to my house and not-yet-garden, which are both very in need of decor ideas and help. Anyone who can make pallet garden furniture or any rustic outdoor furniture especially welcome. Knowledge of garden planning or garden water features in low lying land, also welcome.

    The house in under renovation (roof has been repaired, plumbing repaired, soon will be painting, may have to do some electrical wiring). a fairly unattractive new cabin was built over the garage... enthusiastic beautifiers needed - I haven't got a clue!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    the 5 hours of working a day are more than equally balanced with the hours spent on the beach or enjoying the nearby natural wonders and vibrant nightlife. Within 15 minutes walking distance are 2 beaches, one hotel, the bus stops, 3 good and reasonably priced restaurants/bar and some interesting and funny characters.

    when ever finances permit I am happy to go with you on a beach day or tour of the island.

    I am tattoo artist and do piercing as well.

    The wifi connection is decent. Power is solar. So if there is a week of stormy overcast weather there isn't going to be wifi sometimes. This is not often the case. Two weeks, perhaps, out of the year.
