Hi! I am George (aka Juris). I left my IT career working on transforming parents goat farm into diverse permaculture community center by building market garden as an example for others to learn. I am learning by doing Korean Natural Farming and other natural farming practices which I am happy to share with you.
Although cheese making is family direct sales business, also we are producing for our own consumption. Helping with the business related tasks are not needed. There are plenty smaller tasks to be done to turn our homestead/farm into land regenerating example in the area and making it more sustainable with different tasks like making our own compost, charcoal or garden beds to be able to primarily fulfill family needs. This project is the core of our efforts making the change in the food system and ultimately raising wellbeing in society the way it is possible to us and leading by example. We see workawayers as someone who are interested in permaculture and are willing to acquite new skills and knowledge by means of hands on assistance with diverse set of tasks from which to choose that you feel fit for.

I am part of core collective of friends that share similar values you can meet daily and join our journey of being. On free time it is possible to arrange an adventure in the nature or implement creative collective projects. I am excited to share my knowledge on natural farming and show how to do it practically as part my own learning process. As well as sharing our stories and get to know indigenous people. Your cultural contribution is part of community building exercise that benefits all participants.
Most likely there will be garden maintenance tasks that are not yet optimized and need to be done - like watering, weeding. Depending on project we have taken up - could be some cleanup, assistance. Generally simple tasks that can be done alone however there could be tasks where we do collective tasks. It is a farmstead - the best would be if you have ability to see what needs to be done as we help with non-profit projects like Workaway.
Since we are busy with our daily activities - it would be great if meal making could be helped/assisted with. Locally produced ingredients will be provided (goat meat, milk/cheese, vegetables). Additional ingredients can be sourced from a store!
