My husband and I have a small farm, about 60 miles north of Nashville that has a lot of growing to do. We raise sheep and have two donkeys and no children. We hope for cultural exchanges along with 4 to 5 hours of help 5 days out of the week, not including meal prep and clean-up. Winter upon us, fertilizing and trimming bushes around farm needs to be done. I also want to plan and implement to make another water cistern to help with the ever growing water needs.
We are currently working on an outside shower supplied by filtered rain water, that will be amazing to use.
Our recent somewhat lengthy trip to New Zealand is where we learned so much about sustainability. This trip opened up a world of ideas needed to live on our own with very little outside intervention.
We are working on a small greenhouse, and a small seeding greenhouse.
We have recently upgraded our wood working tools to “top of the line”,if anyone has the passion and or skill to use them. If you have an interest we will teach. Painting and carpenters skills are always helpful. We are hoping for a website soon and could use help with our new Mac computer. if you have artistic talent, Mosaic is my new passion and we will support any of yours during your stay here.
Location!
We are 60 Miles north of Nashville for your love of All music, not just “Country”. Our farm is rural with Unfortunately no public transportation. Happy to help with transportation into cities.
Located on a Large lake that we never seem to have time to go to, great helpers is the best excuse to make it a priority.
Mammoth Cave National Park is near by which have biking and trails abound.
You will have your own sleeping space small but nice. Two weeks is the minimum stay on our farm. Smoking outside only. We eat all foods and I am talented at vegetarian cuisine.
We also ask for a copy of your passport, or valid US Identification upon your arrival for everyone's safety.
