    Description

    I would like to develop my land to grow food on. I have planted various fruit trees and bushes and have a little bit of renovation works going on. This is a start from the beginning with the growing of food, so it will be preparing the ground etc and I would like to do it with no chemicals and try and help nature to be strong again. I also need help with cutting trees down and chopping up for fire wood, stacking etc, this is hard work but many hands make light work. It would be good to learn and see through fresh eyes. I hope you could learn from me and also discover a new friendship. I like new ideas and what better way than to receive ideas from someone who has learnt these by traveling through life. I would be looking to build some Gypsy/Shepherds wagons/huts to rent out as holiday lets later on and would like to do this with no impact on mother nature or at least we can try and offset the impact by giving something back to her. I also like to make small pieces of furniture, light fittings etc, so if you would like to learn how to make things or you have ideas of your own, lets create them together. I have a little cottage on site that I rent out as a holiday home to paying guests who visit this region.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area I live in is peaceful but only 10 minutes from a town and 5 minutes from the local shops, bar. There is a bus route that will take you in to the city or you can use a pushbike to relax and see the lovely countryside around here or just relax here with a drink and some food.
