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.
