    Hello, I'm Damien. I live in S.F. de Campeche with my wife and two daughter's aged 2 and 0. We were given some land by my in-laws and we are planning on building a bigger home for ourselves situated overlooking the hills in a farming community in San Agustín ola a few kilometers outside of Chiná Campeche. Help will start after hurricane season ends in November 2021. I have personal experience as a workaway and I know what kind of help we will be needing. We are mainly interested in skilled labor ie carpenters, masons, landscapers, plumbers and electricians. Our new home will have hot and cold running potable water which is a first in the area. Nearly 2 acres of gardens, stables, professional kitchen, solar panels and much more. I'm a retired chef from Boston Massachusetts and my wife is a local economist. We are open to a fair work exchange. Room and board will be provided in exchange for 25 hours of work a week. No more. There are many wonderful cultural sites around us and you will be highly encouraged to get out to explore and learn about Campeche and Mexico.
    We are going to be building on our hectare of land that overlooks a tiny town. The area is rich in wildlife- there are rabbits and hawks, large iguanas and parrots, snakes and exotic spiders. The beauty it's truly spectacular. We are a couple hours from the nearest cenotes and a few minutes from the warm waters of the Gulf.

    We will be farming a local species of stingless bees that have a 3000 year history with Mayans living in this part of Mexico. I make mead from this and share it with interested friends and family.

    Transportation to and from work site will be provided as well as frequent trips to get supplies in the city. We are a young family with 2 children under 3 years old so we rise with the sun and fall asleep not long after it sets. We prefer to get most work done early before the heat melts away any hope of getting things done.
