Work with Peer, a very experienced all round professional that does and knows more than meets the eye.
Learn construction, farming, farm holding, and generally anything you can imagine.
Peer is following and always suggestions regarding organic growing and permaculture ways.
Sleep inside his beautiful wooden house, or in the barn (another nice structure he built himself).
He manages a beautiful land near the picturesque village of Monsanto, with a stunning view of the mountains.
People are welcome anytime of the year and there is always something to be learned and to be done.
Recently Peer acquired company of a beautiful puppy named Cento. Hopefully Cento will be joined by a sweet kitten soon.
Like to just take care of the pets and keep the house running, Peer and the animals will be delighted.
