    We live in an eco-community set up along Permaculture guidelines .
    We have 370 acres of beautiful forest, with a central small lake,and we work to manage the bush in an environmentally sensitive way. Helping maintain the vegetable garden and fruit trees on our house block, and small landscaping projects would be great to have some help with.
    We do a lot of stonework ,if thats something you want to learn, and if you like cooking,we love eating!
