    You will help with (organic) gardening and general house and property maintenance, including (if you wish) cutting trees, driving a backhoe operating a small sawmill. We also have an eco project on a big 80-acres forested property that we would love to have help with. Love for nature and gardening and basic handyman skills are essential.
