    Description

    Hi everyone !
    I live in a nice location surrounded by beautiful mountains
    I grow all organic food for home use and also have goats, hens and honey bees for pollination of the fruit trees and plants.
    The job is always varied, which will give you the opportunity to learn a lot of new skills and never get bored. I would also be happy to teach you a bit of stretching, training, martial arts and different knowledge about gardening that could interest you.

    UPDATE 19.12.20
    I’m currently looking for two volunteers to help me as soon as possible, preferably boys because I have a lot of hard work to do in the next few months.
    To give you an idea about what kind of work you would do, here are the main projects :
    Ongoing projects : chicken garden / secret garden / finish to establish a new polytunnel
    Upcoming project : Planting a new forest
    There are always a lot to do, I have also a lot of smaller projects.

    If you are interested and motivated to be a part of it, don’t hesitate to contact me !
