What would go on a list of rural skills? How would one learn them? Are they already listed here in one place?
We are seeking people who have some garden and animal experience as well some basic rural living skills. We are asking for 8 hours of work per week and depending on how many people are here 3-4 days every other week on chores + occasional caretaking when we go away. If people have strong interest in the garden and its products, we might ask people to put in another 4-6 hours a week during the growing season. We have laying chickens, turkeys, a milk, meat and pack goat herd of about7-10 (usually no more than 2 milking does) and ducks.
We are looking for people who have some country living and garden skills, are emotionally mature, easy going and good communicators. A good fit for us would be someone who loves to garden and enjoys spending time working with animals and appreciates animal products.
