  • Description


    I am actually in the process of relocating from Bulgaria to the UK (and Spain). I will shortly be putting my property up for sale but would welcome a few days help in the garden to get the gardens ready for winter. The veggie gardens need weeding, sorting and then areas not being used, covered with thick plastic to stop weeds growing. The general garden needs bushes and roses chopping back and general tidying up. The terrace needs a good clean and wash down. Windows need a good clean, inside and out.

    Anyone with good mechanical skills - my small Kubota tractor is making a funny noise on gear change!

    Must be good with dogs as I run a small dog charity and currently have 10 dogs that live with me.

    They could do with some basic lead/harness training so if you want to spend an hour or two a day doing this also be great.

    Trying to learn Spanish as well so if you speak Spanish be good to get some practice.

    I have 2 spare rooms with shared bathroom, you will be in my own home, live with 8 dogs inside house so must be ok with this. No smoking in house but there is outside covered sitting area fine for smoking. Food provided. Happy to host vegans/vegetarians but you might need to do the cooking.
