*Not available until later summer*
We are working towards becoming as self sufficient as we can for the future. We are right by the coast with a beautiful view of the Firth, with the village a 10 minute walk down the beach.
We are all different ages with very mixed backgrounds, but our shared purpose and ethos in life is to provide healing.
To be clear, we are not self sufficient at all yet, we still have to go to the coop for most of our food. We need help!
Our plan on the land is to grow lots of food, preserve meat, and make a forest garden, whilst implementing permaculture principles.
We will not be taking any of these recently developed vaccines and we strongly advise against them. That is our stance on that.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We are learning how to set up a permaculture food growing system in a coastal area - learn with us :)
We need help on our for projects, as well as preparing the land (digging, clearing, etc.), maintaining the polytunnels, growing veg.
Important - We are looking for individuals who have either experience or understanding of living with people carrying trauma.
We need input at the planning stages too - we need people who have experience and/or ideas about creating a self sufficient small holding (perhaps from other hosts).
