I live in a tropical rainforest along Caribbean coastal Colombia.
I've recently bought a small acreage that I will design and develop into a sustainable model farm using permaculture and local knowledge. It's truly a blank slate with only large trees dotting the hilly landscape. There's 110 meters of beautiful clear water river frontage, think daily dips.
My plan is to develop a timber and food forest, garden, nursery for young plants, land stabilization, rain water harvesting, a botanical paradise, inviting place for the monkeys and birds and eventually a small chocolate facility.
I need help right now working on interior wood structures. It's a carpenter I need. Building structures for sinks, counters, and interior doors and completion of a bath house and wash station is another priority. Next a perimeter barrier. Basic construction experience and knowledge will be useful as would work with cement.
I'm a retired Canadian who enjoys people nature and adventure. I have pets.
Minimum stay one month and hopefully you'll enjoy it enough to stay longer. The work is 5 days per week 5-6 hours a day. You will have a simple clean bedroom with new bed and mosquito net in a village house. Fresh home cooked meals on work days and your cooking help and expertise is also welcome. I can do vegetarian. You're free to explore the area on weekends. Internet is close by.
