  • Description


    Hi there, are you interested in spending some time in the Philippines? We have just moved here from France and could do with some help in getting our new property in order. We have around 3.5 hectares that we will be transforming into a sustainable tree farm (longer term project but planting will begin soon) in the nearer future we will be getting our own organic fruit and veg production established purely for personal and helper consumption. We could do with some help spending time with our 2 wonderful boys Kyle and Aidan who are 9 and 6 a pleasure to be with. They have already made many workaway friends.
    Duties will include mostly farm and house work. We ask for 6 hours per day Monday to Friday. Weekends are free and days can be accumulated to allow for longer periods of travelling and sightseeing. We are only a few minutes from the city of Agoo in La Union northern Philippines, Agoo is on the coast of the South China Sea. We are only 1 hour from Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines favoured for its cooler climate.
    We are only about an hour from San Juan and San Fernando the Philippines surfing capital and a pretty cool place for backpackers and hanging out.
    Musicians especially welcome! Hope to meet you soon, warm regards, Brendan, Mitch, Kyle and Aidan English, French, Spanish, Philippino spoken.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are part of a very small and friendly Philippino farming community. Many skill, languages, music etc can be learned

    Helpers can spend time with the friendly local villagers who are very happy for the company. We are very close to the town/city of Agoo and its architecture and bustling market just 20 minutes tricycle ride away and then the seaside and fishing port of Agoo. Baguio city is an hour and a half bus ride away. San Fernando and San Juan the surfing capital of the Philippines is also an hour and a half bus ride away. If you need to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Asian cities and come to a really chilled and relaxed farm. After your days work there is plenty of space and a great pool, also plenty of recreation facilities and areas (especially for musicians and singers) then we have the place for you.
