     •  We have a number of exciting projects, all of which require someone with solid bookkeeping and financial management skills as we hope to run part of our business as a social enterprise
     •  We have recently established a community orchard, commissioned an architect to design an iron age style 'columbarium' for the internment of ashes as part of a proposed eco-cemetery and more (see our website and facebook page)
