We need 2 volunteers

We are a small farm, practising permaculture to regenerate land and demonstrate organic farming in rural Japan. We are expanding our operations and land, and need people to help with everyday farm work and expansion/improvement projects.

I'm English, my wife is Israeli, and we've lived in Japan since 1990. I'm a freelance translator. We moved to an old farmhouse in 2001 and have been farming organically on a small scale since then. Last year we got more ambitious and have been expanding to work more land and raise animals (chickens and rabbits so far).
