    Currently landscaping and developing a vegetable garden so lots of help needed outside on these projects - anyone with gardening skills is much appreciated. Also general cleaning around the main rooms and help with grocery runs and cooking group meals. Other little projects and ideas are always popping up as well so always different things to be done, including some artistic projects.
