    I have a big knowledge of organic gardening. Have a large collection of seldom vegetable seets.... I'm a professional cook... and I like to share this knowledges with a cup of tea or coffee. My small one is sporty and like´s to play football or chess.

    Water floated the entrance. It has to be rebuild again. And in an former old farmhouse there is always something to do, to restaurate. So I'm looking for somebody who has knowledge as a bricklayer or as a joiner. Or just somebody who has some practical hands. Some works with wood have to be done. It's an organic household. The kids would need practice in english as well as I. It would be nice to get some seasonal help in the garden from time to time.
