    i laura

    We live in a house - Laura is dedicated to finishes , decorations and sometimes the glazes (Painting technic Steiner) .

    We have a piece of land, where there are olive trees and an orchard that gives us marvelous fruits (grapes , plums , figs , apples and pears). We are starting a project of a synergic garden, that we want to continue during the winter . Its primarily here and with the building that we need your help.

    We don't need you to have previous experience, just the will to work and learn, so that this meeting will be good for both of us. Some times the work will make you feel your body, I dont think gardening can be done in other way.

    The hours of work are flexible and we arrange according to your preferences, except when there is a job that needs to be done in a certain time (like collecting certain fruits, making mermelades, etc.)

    The house is the space of everyone, so we expect everyone to collaborate with the tidiness and keeping of the place.

    We have four adult children who attended Steiner schools, they live in the city and are with us only occasionally .

    We have a van with 9 places we use in our work and when we go to the beach (very nice beaches here) or sightseing, it that can also be turned into a small mobile home ( self-built ) for our holidays traveling.

    We have cats, but they are primately outside, and a dog that's still a puppy so it's very energetic.
