  • Description

    Description

    We are just starting a project of gardening, following some of the philosophical principles of permaculture.
    We have some animals, chickens and a cat for the moment, and one garden to achieve self-reliance with little maintenance, using many perennial vegetables. We are starting one big food forest too...
    So we need help in many aspects, planting and propagation of plants and trees, mowing grass, preparing new places to plant... We also home school our children. They will be happy to learn new things that you can teach or show.
    We also also have many building projects going on, new chicken houses, ponds, renovation of the buildings, greenhouses...

    We are one family with this permacultural project, focusing on perennials and trees. There is another farm from the same family. It is an organic farm with land outside and greenhouses, with more than 20 years experience. So there are plenty of things to learn if you are open to it.
