  • Help


    We need different type of help depending on the season.

    In autumn/winter/spring we need help with wood chopping, carpenter work, building projects and maybe gardening, olive picking, painting, home cleaning or pruning plants.
    We would like to create a permanent art exhibition dedicated to Serena's father who passed away in 2019.

    In summer/spring we need help with our animals as chicken, goats (their names are Tiffany and Cornetto), fishes, tortoises, parrot (called Mango), and maybe we need you to cook, clean house or helping us with "Garden Sharing".

    From June 14th to end of August we are looking for one persone who help us cleaning house (such as making bed in the morning, cleaning bathroom and kitchen and so on...) and cook us breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    In September Serena would like to renovate the house so she need help in painting the wall and in renovating forniture and windows!
