Fruit tree pruning
Ever-necessary work on the land: clearing, pruning, brushcutting, tidying, making compost, preparing beds for seeding and planting.
Chainsaw skills are super appreciated right now as the big clear-up from the 2017 fires is still ongoing and there's the coming winter's firewood to process our of it too.
The winter pruning of fruit trees is underway. Pruning skills much appreciated.
Volunteers with mechanical skills particularly appreciated right now as the trusty quinta Mondeo is not well.
Processing and preserving of fruits and vegetables, preparing wild and cultivated herbs for teas and medicines, working with the quinta's resident kefirs, kombuchas and sourdoughs.
Round pole timber-framing, wattle-and-daub wall construction, various cob projects and stonework are all scheduled for the summer months.
Planting seedlings, harvesting, weeding, mulching and watering the quinta's annual vegetable gardens.
