    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have a small company in land cleaning.

    I have some heavy tools like a digger, tractor and land tools for the back of the tractor.

    I would be happy to learn you these skills while building up an old ruin on the property.

    The olive and grapes trees need to be cleaned out, which is a hands on task, so your work-out is included! 😊

    Building projects
    On my land there is a ruin that has to be rebuild from zero, with possibilities to provide or create separate places to live. To protect my machines and other working stuff, as well to create a working space, a hangar is also on the to-do list.
    I just started living self-sufficiently in a very basic way, most facilities are here
    Have your owne spot to create a nice place to stay .....

    For more than 20 years the land has been unprocessed. Large parts need to be done with the machines.
    The construction of a vegetable garden is ok and big clearing to
    Gliding rapes, pruning olive trees still to do

    Is a big assignment to keep everything going because of the many projects that are in progress or have to be started.
    The garden and the house (in progress) need to be maintained, as well as the machines.

    Help around the house
    This is mainly about the daily things that have to be done.
    From making food, qualitiy time with my son / the kids and talking about the many projects to be organised.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
