  • Description

    Description

    I have a beautiful traditional house and garden, with swimming pool in the Gers and need help to enable me to continue my charity fundraising.I need to maintain and develop the house, produce a website and a newsletter and develop the garden to its full potential.
    I enjoy the French rural life and would like to work with volunteers to give them a taste of life in the Gers, including good food, wine, fetes etc., in exchange for a variety of tasks, depending on their skills. I also like to go away for a few days and leave responsible workaways to look after the cats and the house and garden.
    I would ask that volunteers stay for at least a fortnight and like to do a mixture of tasks in the house and garden.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The Spanish property is a new project for me, having sold my French home. In addition to developing my own plots, I will be responsible for marketing other homes on the site and other sites nearby.
    in Staffordshire I am developing an organic quarry garden, with landscaping and plant propagation.
    I may need Internet help on websites and blogs so all expertise will be gratefully received.
    There is also ongoing maintenance, cooking and cleaning. Mostly I ask you to do the things you prefer from a very long list.
    For example, my last two workaways, who are both brilliant, have helped me to move from France to Spain, started work on the Spanish site and one will be continuing in England.
