    I'm looking for volunteers helping me during the hazelnut harvest.
    We will use an aspirator carried by a tractor: a person will drive the tractor, another one will use the aspirator and a third one will gather the hazelnuts with a blower.
    Afterwords it will be necessary to select the fruits among herbs, leaves and other spare materials and store them.
    I'm looking also volunteers speak good english to practise and teach to my childs.
