I need help managing my garden, my land, and working on my home. I'm looking for 3-4 hrs of help a day. It can be very flexible. Some paid work may be available with me doing work for others. I have many years of gardening, and home repair under my belt. I traveled years ago work trading on farms, and homesteads. I'm a handyman by trade these days. I can teach about building trades, gardening, plant identification, and more. I live along a 57 mile long trail called the New River Trail. It's a rails to trails state park. It's a seven mile bike ride on the path to the closest town. I have bicycles to use. There is a river close by, I have a canoe. My land has a spring, a creek, hills, meadow, forest, and wetlands.
Accommodations are modest. I have an extra bedroom, and matress. We will likely renovate that room this summer. There are plenty of places to camp as well. There are no flush toilets, i have a composting toilet. Hot showers are available. There is electric, and wifi here. No cable, or tv of any kind. I can provide food, but nothing luxurious. There is no laundry on site. The closest town is a 7 min drive, there is laundry, and grocery stores.
It's not a very lively town. The closest bars are in Radford, 25 min away. Blacksburg is a cool town, 40 min away. Roanoke is a decent size city, 1 hr away. There are plenty of outdoor adventures to be had in this region.
E-mail is fine to reach me, but shooting me a text is cool too.
