    There is always a lot to do in the farm Gardening ,watering ,repairs.,strimming ,the focus is on the new project a tiny cob house..
    We could work together in garden and construction. Do handcrafts .

    We like our privacy so it would be nice if you can live by your self in a tent or as a neighbor in your own driving home.
    There is a space for taking a bath.
    On working day's we eat together.

    Space for camper or so.
    In summer warm shower outside .
    In winter gas heated for warm water bath.
    We consider it to be a fair exchange offer both food and accommodation on working day´s for up to 4-5 hours a day.
    If we do not have to offer food 10 hours a week will do .
    As we also provide a free camping based on energy exchange.
    The internet is only connected whit a wire, as I can not stand mobile waves .
