    We are a very open minded family looking for a helping hand that loves the nature and agriculture as much as we do :)
    We are Ana and Manolo, and we have 3 daughters. Marta (34) and Bea (36) are now living and working in Barcelona and Ana (24) is studying in Santiago de Compostela. Ana comes home often as she lives close by, and she loves to meet people from other countries so she will show you around :)
    We live in a small village 5 min away by car from the sea. Our village is called Comoxo and the town Boiro. Boiro is famous for its seafood and mussels. There are many beautiful beaches around here, also promenades and viewpoints. Our area is also attractive in summer for vacation, many people all around the world come here in summer time.
    When the sun is shining it is amazing! Everything is blue and green! You will love it :D

    You can learn Spanish from us, as we don't speak any other language than Spanish and Galician. You will also learn a lot about agriculture, we love nature and we've been working in this area for many years. Also, a lot of family members and neighbours ask us for advice and Manuel is very good at graftage!

    WE ARE CURRENTLY IN NEED OF GRAPE HARVEST! Come and help Manolo to pick the grapes and he'll teach you how the romans used to make wine and how we make it in Galicia ;)

    We both work in the garden. We have a huuuuge garden with many different kinds of fruits and vegetables, from the most exotic to the most traditional here in Galicia. We grow tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce, lemons, oranges, clementines, leeks, tamarillos, rasberries, strawberries, feijoas, figs, chestnuts, wallnuts, hazelnuts, pomegranates, peaches, pears, apples, cherries, loquats, straberry trees, and many other fruits that you will see when you come here :)
    We also have a kiwi plantation, and your main task would be to help with the pruning.
    Your task would entail pruning, collecting the fruit and grafting.

    With your free time you can do whatever you want. You can visit many places around here, there are a lot of beautiful destinations, for example Fervenza de Cadarnoxo, which is a waterfall that you can reach walking or by bike, Castros de Baroña by the coast and Mirador da Curota, where you get some really nice views of Ría de Arousa estuary. Porto do Son is also a very nice area if you like surfing, you can also do kayak, rowing or any other sport that you would like. Pontevedra and Santiago de Compostela are not far away (40 min by car). And then Coruña and Vigo are a little further but not too distant. You can also use Ana's bike and bike around the cost, it is beautiful!
