  • Description


    Join my son and I on a smallholding 15kms from the sea and and a stroll to the bottom of the garden to our bordering river. Assist in growing new organic gardens of abundance. It's just too much for us to cope with alone,as its an old chicken farm thats been neglected and reansacked over the past year. So, if you are ready for hard work and new beginnings....come and get your hands and feet dirty and blistered in KZN, South Africa.
    I homeschooled my son, so any help there will be much appreciated.
    This is a new project as we are moving to a new location in a lovely farming region inland from Scottburgh and Umkomaas in a farming valley named "Crowders,"

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will learn about rural community life in a beautiful subtropical area of the south coast in Kzn. Get to know the local flora and fauna. Meet with the local population just 15kms from Scottburgh. Close enough to the city of Durban if the need arises. swim in the river or the ocean. Travel by Local Transport or lift share as I do have a car.
    I garden by the moon planting calendar.
