***** Please note that the feedback I have is from when I had my previous place in Tarifa, Cádiz, where I started hosting Workawayers. I have moved to Girona 2 months ago.
I welcome someone (or a couple) to help with general garden tasks. I am also planning an organic vegetable garden, a wooden pergola, and perhaps a solar water heater.
I have a small carpentry and welding shop at home, so it's a good chance for you to learn a little bit. I also do my own plumbing and electrical work if you are interested in learning.
Help with any of the above would be greatly appreciated. I try to respond very quickly to requests. I've been a Workawayer myself and know that it is important.
The house is a 5 minute drive from Caldes de Malavella, in a quiet residential area with forests around to take walks.
I cook a varied diet, but very little meat or fish. I welcome volunteers suggestions for grocery shopping and look forward to trying new recipes. In any case, you will also have your own kitchen and fridge so you can stock up and cook what you like.
You will have your own room, bathroom and kitchen, as I am currently staying in my caravan in the front garden, because the main house is not fully furnished, but will have everything you need.
I smoke but I'm happy to smoke outdoors if guests don't smoke. I don't drink alcohol, but guests are welcome to as long as it's not during work hours and moderately outside of them.
I want to offer a space here where you feel free to offer your particular skills and where you don't worry about what you don't know.
For mutual benefit, I suggest you try it for one week and then we can both decide if the arrangement can work out for a longer period.
I look forward to hearing from you!

On your spare time, I can drive you to the train station, where you can be in Barcelona in less than an hour, Girona in 15 minutes or Figueres in 40 minutes, and to beaches also in about 30-40 minutes by train.
I also go to town almost every day, either to work or shop, so volunteers are welcome to share the ride and spend some time in the town of Caldes de Malavella, which has some Roman Thermal Baths pretty well preserved and worth touring around. The town is very relaxed and nice to walk about. For any other questions, feel free to contact me.
