(Update: i haven't been very active during 2018 due to work abroad but 2019-2020 is starting a lot better and i have started the orchard)
I live in a big house in a very quite village in the mountains in Navarre, i am a carpenter and sometimes work from home or away and sometimes i don´t work. My dream would be to live off the land, but so far I just have a little orchard and some land with grass and apple trees, i plant vegetables and i am rebuilding a small wall that has collapsed, there is some fencing and some soil turning to be done, the apple trees need pruning in march and hopefully i will be picking up apples in September or October, experience with apples and planting vegetables will be very welcomed, i would like to make make beer too, someone who can help me start the first batch of Ale would be amazing. I would like to host people who are knowledgeable and can give me a hand with these things, but maybe you have some other ideas about what to do, i have been living here just a couple of years after travelling a lot and the place has a lot of potential, overall i would like to host people with good energy who is happy to share it, regardless of your farming skills. I am very happy to meet people from other countries in Europe and from everywhere really, this is a quiet environment to rest, write, paint, read...good company is always welcomed and i am very flexible about the arrangement with working and spending time here.
