Permaculture garden near Krakow needs some help

Permaculture volunteer opportunity โ€“ Hi, I am a permaculture gardener and herbalist. I grow vegetables, berries, fruit trees, many flowers, medical herbs and tomatoes in a greenhouse. I also preserve for winter and make my own vinegar (many types), tinctures from medical herbs, dried herbal teas, creams etc. I live in a natural house: strawbale and clay and have 1 dog and 2 cats.
I need some help with gardening: preparing the beds for vegetables, herbs and flowers, weeding, watering tomatoes; picking the vegetables and fruits for food preservation for winter; picking the herbs: drying herbs, making vinegars.
I can teach all of these activities. Can also teach some herbalism, wild edible plants, and food preservation.
Can also assist with sightseeing in Krakow the most beautiful city in Poland and a very tourist city.
