Description
There are two of us, a retired artist and youth worker,with four cats, living in our seaside house (beach 200m) with garden and 2 allotments for 12 years. Have practised organic gardening and permaculture for ten years. I have a permaculture qualification, can teach basic permaculture. We grow many veg, fruit and herbs, and keep chickens. We are active, sociable, accustomed to living and working with other people in many situations and expect WWOOFers to live as family, helping with washing up, etc. Need help with garden and allotments, harvesting and conserving produce, sowing and planting, composting and looking after the chickens, some woodwork/maintenance.
All home vegetarian cooking, can teach baking, jam making, wine making, dehydration. Aim is for as much self sufficiency as possible. For free time, conversation, beach, bikes, art materials.
Sorry, only room for one Wwoofer. SOMEONE URGENTLY NEEDED SECOND HALF JULY DUE TO NON-ARRIVAL OF WWOOFER. I have just had a second knee replacement op and we particularly need help as a result... Roy is stretched to his limits working alone here..
