    Description

    Hi , my name is Clara , I' m 64 years old and I' m living in the countryside , actually with four dogs , three cats and some chickens.
    My three children are living in other places and sometimes come to visit me.
    I've an old big house , with garden , vegetable garden , swimming pool , wood ....
    The house is partly to be restored , the rest needs a lot of maintenance.
    I only use microoganisms for cleaning the house , for animals and in the green garden . I'm a naturopath and an artist , I'm looking for someone interested in a natural or artistic project, maybe to stay for a long period. There are many jobs to do outside, both in the vegetable garden and wood, around the pool, and simple carpentery works like building a fence.
    Currently two little dogs of almost 20 years need special care. One needs someone 24 hours a day, because she has had 4 strokes and is not very upright, but turns, cries, does her needs, falls, eats and drinks several times a day and at night. It takes two people just for her!
    I have had and currently have many volunteers, especially from Brazil. I would like to speak Italian, but I understand the Latin languages ​​and a little English.
    I specified that we do not eat meat, we use organic and garden products, as well as only natural detergents. So far the volunteer kids have certainly followed the rules, but dreaming of eating meat, drinking coke and junk food. From now on I wish to find people who are already leading healthy and eco-friendly lives, including soaps, bath foam and shampoo. People who are curious about nature and know it well, who maybe can teach me secrets to grow or cook in a natural way and I will do the same. I think it's time to make a difference. Clearly everyone has their weaknesses, including me, the important thing is that the most important thing is the salvation of the planet, now more than ever. It happens that at Christmas only we eat chicken, but strictly from a farm where the animals they are free in the woods and at the moment of death they are made to suffer as little as possible and without fear. We will see if we continue this habit.

    I sometimes go away for two weeks or a month and I need someone for helping with animals and house.
    I live about 30 Km from Pavia .
    The most important thing for me is love for animals .

    At the moment there are four Brazilian volunteers awaiting citizenship for the Ius Sanguinis law, and given the difficult period due to the virus we do not know when they will be able to finish the process, I believe in principle that I need volunteers from July, certainly at least one girl and a boy or two.
    I can't help anyone for citizenship now. I'll change my profile when it will bw possible.
