Hi everyone, I'm new here, so I apologize if this thread is in the wrong place.

I live in Switzerland, and I would like to invest into a long-term permaculture project, learning and inching towards self-sufficiency over years and decades...

Now I am at a fork in the road: my father's family side owns a couple of hectares of beautiful, unused grassland (it gets cut once a year for some horses) in the mountains. They live about 3 hours from where we do and we won't be able to relocate for a long time. What we CAN do is spend there 2-3 days every 2 weeks and work on the place during that time.

I'm new at all this, I have been reading and learning about techniques etcetera but I don't have a good feeling of the amount of labor needed and how it is distributed. Can one do meaningful work with chunks of 2-3 days at a time, a couple of times a month? In particular: if you have a very long-term optic of preparing/improving the place over the course of 20 years and maybe move there once the right moment comes... what would you do?

The alternative is to look for land around where we live and work, but that choice depends on my question above...

Thank you!
