The Experience

We are seeking people interested in organic veggie gardening (weed, water, harvest) or a handyman with skills in construction, plumbing or electrical, as there are many odd jobs around the property. Please let us know if you have any other skills you enjoy doing! After work, you'll have lots of trails & lake to enjoy. On bus route or walk to town. Private room for one - if you have your own camper van, 2 is fine. We have a cat - no farm animals.
