Ciao! We are a family of three and we live in the countryside!
We live in the north of Italy, near reggio emilia (20 min from parma and 50 from bologna).
I am a primary school teacher and my boys are 12 and 15. We want our workaways to be part of the family and enjoy the cultural exchange just like us.
We have one small cat and a dog.
***LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL TRAINER AT THE MOMENT, preferably a woman, to help me with daily exercises, I am very lazy and need motivation. My kids could join in too!***
We need to dig out small trees and empty an old shed that needs to be put down. We need to build a small log house in the woods, a hen hut near the house, plant fruit trees and shrubs, start making a vegetable patch. We also need a hedge for our bigger animals, we want to get cows as soon as possible, the shelter for them is nearly ready.
Experience in carpentry would also be ideal. If you are a couple, I also need help in the house (Floors and dishwashing after meals.)
Meals always with us.
You will have your own bedroom, possibly my car, village nearby and forests to walk.
Wood stove and solar panels.
