  • Description

    Description

    My husband and I moved to Provence 3 years ago and built a house. We have a small organic vegetable garden, 40 olive trees, chickens and recently planted 400 vines by hand. We are an organic garden and plan to produce biodynamic wines one day. We are looking for someone to help with 2-3 weeks of work in and around the garden. We have a veg garden too but its really manual labor about 4 hours per day. We live in the heart of the Luberon and its beautiful here. There is a bus that can take you to Aix en Provence and from there you can travel anywhere by bus or train on your days off. Our village is called Lourmarin, voted the prettiest in Provence. We are blessed with daily farmers markets in the neighboring villages.

    If you have building experience we may want to build a shed too.
