  • Descripción


    We are wholesale growers for the plant nursery industry located in the pictures Lowveld area situated next to the Kruger National Park. We live and work on a small family farm close to White River Mpumalanga, I have 3 big Dobermans and a cat that lives in the house with me so you will have to be comfortable with close contact with them but not to worry you won't have to share a room with them. We are constantly upgrading and expanding our nursery and various other jobs are available. If you love plants and getting your hands dirty and a bronze tan then this is the workaway position for you. Please note that most of the chores are outdoors and in the sun, if you have a sensitive skin please come with waterproof sunscreen, we only have mild winters and you will still get sunburned this time of the year! We are also in the early stages of creating a permiculture area and would like to have some volunteers with some experience and or interested in this field to help achieve this project.
