Hello out there ! i am looking for some experienced gardener with a few years back ground, to take over the responsability of the garden/vegetable production , you have to be able to work independent ,plan a garden and succesion of plants, understand watering and machines how to grow up plants and seedlings ,compost care fruit trees care .Of course especially in the beginning i will be there to show you and introduce you. i need to take time off from the garden to focus on other projects here at the Shangri-la project = buildings and planning, building a chimneyand a rocket stove massive heater . The position is for somebody that can stay here a few months , maybe longer.

“We are at a profound crossroads,The forces that have been unleashed by our greed, our misunderstanding of what nature is and our endless economic idea that it can grow without any checks and balances has come to its end.”
Tero Mustonen.
So !....what do ...?
Shangri-La is a bio-dynamic/permaculture farm/garden started 1/3/16, we focus on selfsufficiency/sustainability , produce most of what we eat ., grow a rich diversified variety of plants/fruits trees , see website for more details.
it is a working farm/garden with everyday physicall work.
- Taking care of the animals daily routine
- Garden/vegetable work/ fruit tree care/ kompost
I have a big focus on creating/improving fertility of soil in different ways.
Also a passion to ferment food of all kinds:
drinks , vegetable, bread , milk , cereals , miso, deanjang.

Shangri-la is and wants to be a intentional comunity for living a healthy life style, free from EMF/microwaves radiations.
We offer a holistic healthy environment and life FREE from unhealthy pollution from electromagnetic/EMF, wireless radiations
We dont have and do not allow WIFI so the CONNECTION is much better here...

There is a long term possibility to join as a resident.

It is also a place that offers BnB ( rooms for rent ) for short, or special agreements for long-term and a place where you can rent a space to camp or establish your mobile home , teepee , yurt, for a short or long term stay , maybe even grow your own garden and live selfsufficient
a place maybe for a long term stay as a community member but this is of course a long project/story which will also involve from your side to invest in an economical share in order to be here.

After having attended a residential fermentation workshpo by and with Sandor Katz , i am happy to pass on my experiences.
Also from " Bean to Bar ! " now and then i transform raw cacao beans to delicious
chocolat bars !.....roasting, grinding/refining, conching , tempering , moulding........

A big part of the life here is about cultivating taking care and transforming , fermenting , drying the food we
produce, there are chickens and a cachena cow and calf.
we regularly bake our bread with our own sourdough starter with fresh grinded cereals from our own mill , different fermented drinks and vegetable fermentations and experiment are always actual.
Daily green smoothies from the garden .
raw food is in forderground, but not only.
Acoustic musical instruments are most welcome!
NON smokers only ,no drugs, no alcohol, no pets ,thanks
