    Description

    We have a very productive vegetable garden and are also developing 2.5 acres where we are building a certified Passive House. We need general help with our home garden of weeding, composting, garden maintenance, manure and seaweed collection and water blasting. On your land we are establishing fences, vegetable gardens, flower garden, orchard and glasshouse. Lucinda also co ordinates an organic food co op with 60 families, this is interesting to learn about :-)


    We have 3 children so appreciate extra help to get things done.
