Thanks for checking us out.
in general, I prefer to work with couples or female garden fairy's to help with gardening and my beautiful kids who live One week with mom in Plett and One week with me near Knysna.
It would also be really handy to have someone around who is conversant in wordpress
Sorry guys, but in terms of hard labor, I have a Malawian thats incredibly strong.🌳💪
This year Forest Harmony wishes to collaborate with workaways with specific skills.
Skills in permaculture, solar energy, plumbing - eco-building. And/or experience/qualifications with sustainable dev
If you feel you have skills to share - we can also look at doing workshops at our venue to share with Garden Route locals
Additionally, I have an upcoming project called the solar caravan which will require a multidisciplinary eco team to identify and assist with resolving some of the most pressing issues in South Africa (and globally) at this moment.
Like an eco swat team.
Please message me for more details...
this kind of collaboration can always be done remotely at the moment.
We are also especially interested in filmmakers and film editors - this may only happen in the later half of the year or early next yer for a number of factors.
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.
Happiness and keeping it light is important to me.
I am done with living in cities and can only imagine visiting them for the Holidays.
I have 2 Children (Quinn 3 and Laya 7) who I adore.
They 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 etc.
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 can always use help with running the green dragon.
My - Long Term vision for the farm is to turn it into 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...:)
Our place is exquisitely beautiful and situated with easy access to Forests, waterfalls and 40 minutes from the beach.
