    *️️️️️️*️️️️️️*️️️️️️looking for help from 11th May to 26th May*️️️️️️*️️️️️️*️️️️️️ mostly for:

    -cleaning and organizing a storage room
    -treating wooden furniture
    -hoeing, weeding, sowing and planting
    -white-washing outside walls
    -painting windows

    I live in a tiny village by the sea and have no regular job, but I run a little guesthouse business, and started a vegetable garden recently, I try to use the fruit hanging in the trees to make conserves etc, and during the winter make some decoration, painting, cleaning, gardening and construction works in the guesthouse and surrounding land.

    I live slow but like to keep myself busy, apart from the guest house and the sustainable food production/transformation/consumption, I'm interested in handcrafts, at the moment I'd like to learn artisanal wool making (collecting, preparing, spinning), and i'm trying out natural dyeing and whatever local old people might have to teach, aka endangered handcraft knowledge : )

    The village is accessible by bus.
    Mostly on saturdays I go to the city organic market, to the library and do some shopping.
