Help with Eco project
Help in the house
i lives 3 year between Birmingham and Dublin that experience, the contact with people from different parts of the planet change my point of see of the world, we have the experience like a traveler, here you will learn about different areas like: eco farming and garden-house building, the own production of the all process of wine, the maintenance of fruits trees.
The help we need is mainly in grounds keeping and tasks in the vineyard and fruits trees , as their maintenance is essential in the very rich and generous valley. The grass cutting and collecting is a weekly summer task performed with the help of a tractor. the maintenance of the fruit trees is other important task with the cultives in the garden house on winter season.
In the vineyard, such as in the park, the type of help depends on the season. from pruning to harvesting and from making and bottling wine to picking up. crop the leaves, clean the grapes, etc.
The daily schedule is maximum 5 hours a day, 5 days per week. We prefer a job well done rather than a strict schedule of hours! Because of our weekday jobs, we have more time to work on grounds keeping and in the vineyard on weekends, so it's great to count on your help on these days. We will teach you many different steps on the vineyard growth and, according to the season, you will be able to experience making your own wine.
