Currently building a strawbale house on 100 acres. half of property is native forest, balance open country under permaculture system development. If you have a desire to learn by working hands on, are prepared to rough it, sleep in a tent on verandahs edge, get up at sunrise and finish at sunset, with a 2 hour lunch break, perform a variety of tasks from tending chickens and goats, planting, watering, helping with house construction when needed, in return for food accom and a small wage negotiable, send me a message via this forum. Ideally you should be a non smoker, drug free, who can go without alcohol on farm. If you respond please include a contact phone number so that I may call you personally. Thanks Leo Mahon.
