  • Description


    Ongoing. Weeding, Strimming, hedge cutting, pollytunnel general maintenance. Comfortable with power tools is preferred. July and August have very limited availability.

    I am a busy working Herbalist & Yoga Teacher, living in a rural location on half acre of land. I have one son 18 years and a 🐕 who lives inside. My son likes football and interested in pursuing film editing at university.

    The house is a renovated old cottage using many sustainable building materials and solar panels/ stove for heat. The workawayers room has a view of mountains. The area is very scenic with a large lake a short drive away. We just had a polytunnel installed last year and still perfecting best crops, formation etc. Great if you have experience in permaculture ways inc no dig, partner planting etc. If you are wordpress Web dev savvy, it's useful. If you are interested in herbs you are welcome to assist in the dispensary. We eat predominantly vegetarian with some fish. I like to walk in local spots and forage edible plants for food or medicine. Come and join our family for a couple of weeks with energy to offer and learn about herbal medicine & healthy living.
