    Help

    We are looking for help mostly in the garden, assisting with preparing the ground, planting seeds and seedlings, weeding and harvesting along with general garden maintenance.
    This would suit a single traveller or couple interested in helping for 25 hours for 1 week. We require some flexibility in working hours depending on the weather but can also be flexible in return regarding hours and days worked.
    No smoking inside the house.
