Thanks for checking us out.
In 2019 we had a lot of people through the Door, in 2020 we want to take a more focused approach.
This year we wish to collaborate with workaways with specific skills.
Skills in permaculture, solar energy, plumbing - eco-building. And/or experience/qualifications with sustainable dev
Additionally, If you feel you have skills to share - we can also look at doing workshops at our venue to share with Garden Route locals
I have an upcoming project called the solar caravan which will require a multidisciplinary eco team to identify and resolve some of the most pressing issues in South Africa (and globally) at this moment.
Please message me for more details...
We are also especially interested in filmmakers and film editors
Day to day help with life at the farm can include:
Help with setting up Infrastructure (building, gardening, venue improvement, etc) and prettifying spaces
Checking Guests in - showing them where/how it all functions
Ensuring spaces are clean and ready to receive guests
Multi miscellaneous Farm Projects - building, installing chimneys for Firebaths maintenance etc
A Little Background on me and the current situation:
I moved down from Joburg 3 years ago.
I have traveled in 43 Countries and shared many magical moments helping/being helped along the way and believe in paying it forward, gifting economy and all things along the line of a new world system - based on people and planet
I am done with living in cities and can only imagine visiting them for Holidays.
I have 2 Children (Quinn 3 and Laya 7) who I adore that live close by with their mom and visit every second weekend.
Also, there are 3 dogs who Love love.
We have a large Veggie patch that always needs weeding/planting/seed saving activities.
I live with Captain Joseph from Malawi who started full time in Dec 2018 and is an amazing man with an awesome work ethic.
I run a solar company and could use help with administration sometimes in both physical and virtual filing.
Our - Long Term vision is to become an Eco training center, yoga retreat space, permaculture, upcycling, etc etc...
Essentially all aspects of sustainable living
I Would Love to do more Yoga but need encouragement...:)
