  • Description


    Hi everybody,
    I just finished building a house and it has a large glasshouse -14m x 4m.
    I need someone with experience in gardening, setting up a glasshouse to grow vegetables..
    We try to have a good standard with cooking so am looking for someone who can also cook and use the local produce, particularly fish and seafood and use produce from our garden.
    You will have your own private room. The house has great views of the ocean.
    We are beside the villlage and ferry port and a few minutes walk to the shops, pier, and nearby beach.
    We enjoy fresh produce from the garden and fish and excellent seafood from the sea, all complimented by a nice selection of wines.
    I originate from the island and returned in recent years for this project and now love being back on the island.
    I am busy on the project all day and need some help - a few hours per day from someone who in particular is experienced in growing vegetables in a glasshouse, vertical growing etc.
    There are other Workaways and international people here on the island and we all socialise together. So there is lots of activity.
    Kind regards and happy traveling.

  • Accommodation


    It is a new house I built. I live alone except when a WorkAway arrives. There are 3 bedrooms so you will have your own private room.
    A bicycle is also available. We will eat together. I will buy the food. I enjoy cooking too. I fish and gather food from the seashore. Together with food that we grow we have nice meals and there is good wines.

    There is lots to see and explore on the island.
    A good holiday and festival scene is going on all summer.
    It is easy to meet and make friends because we are on an island with a friendly atmosphere.
    There are other workaways in the local hostel and I meet them all the time. I will introduce you to many.
