  • Description


    I live near a small village in the countryside in Umbria Italy, with my three kids. We live at the second floor of a familiar house and we have a small garden to take care of, outside there are some works to do like general manteinance and in the kitchen there is a wall to be broken. At home we speek italian and french an english, I work as a french teacher and translator and as a shiatsu practitioner. I also work with recognising wild plants in the countryside. in the week-end it will be possible for you to visit the natural and historical places around with the association "il seme d'ulivo" that is nearby.

    I expect help for the gardening work, planting and taking care of vegetables, i need to learn about organic work in the garden: build a composter...In the house i need a wall of 2x 2 m to be taken off to have more light an space, it's a thin one but needs an expert to do it. I need some help with the kids to learn them some creative works like building wooden huts or painting, or activities adapted for their age, my son is 14, and my daughters are 12 and 7.
    I expect you to work about 4-5 hours a day.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I just entered my house three months ago, it's like a new life starting so every person coming is contributing to the creative soul of this place. I would like to give an imprinting of doing and living with a very sane, simple and clear purpose.
