Dear travelers, we are a couple that have both travelled the world and now have settle to give passion to The Joy of growing. Growing in everyway.. Here in "little land" we found a tiny farm with lots of abundance and possibilities to be self-sustaining, Raffaella 32 from Sweden/Italy, that have her big love for growing veggies, medicinal plants and preserving things from nature. Been working as vegetarian cook True The years, and later on studied to become a garden master in biodynamic farming.
Simon 39 Englishman is growing into The life on the countryside, becoming a handyman in everything he takes on, have travelled lots and lots. Simon is also musician and loves jamming with others. We are both old work-awayers and see this as a beautiful way of exchanging knowledge, passion and Great project such as art, music, handcraft, food nature and much more.
Here we live in total nature with lots of forests, lakes, wild animals and what is called The glass kingdom. We have beautiful bigger towns in every direction and The sea with different Islands.
Most of all we try to build up this forgotten little farm, with eatable trees, kitchen gardens, house renovations, making good food and try to live in harmony with less.
As now we live with little Kiko, our street dog from Portugal, Our little puppie Orza that came to life here.. We have our two kittens and also our beautiful chickens..
This Autumn we will work on: Making a beautiful home for our New Baby boy who was just born on the 30th August. Right now we are getting used to life together and we could really do some help on closing up the garden for winter and planting out some crops for next year, and help with looking after our animals, we now have 3 female goats that are newish to the family and they need food, cleaning and for us to find them a suitable lover for the winter so they can make babies and we can make cheese in the spring. Ideally we are dreaming of a couple, 1 who is happy to work outdoors in the garden and with the animals, and the other who is happy to cook for us all and keep the kitchen tidy. It is a busy time of the year at our place but also it is a time when we are wanting to spend time cosying up as our new family, so ideally our next volunteers will be happy to spend time chilling on there own and we wont feel the pressure of having to entertain them. what gifts will the river bring this time..........
