  • Description


    Smallholding in central France, there's a huge garden to tend, woods to manage and animals to tend. The garden is organic, so plenty of weeding required! Also some building work is going on, so if you're handy with a saw, screwdriver and a paintbrush, even better! Chainsaw ability is also a plus if you can help restore the woods to their natural state.

    Apart from the weeding and general gardening, we need help with restoring the woods so chainsaw experience would be helpful. Building skills - even better! If you enjoy cooking, even better yet!
