  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for help with our younger children and some help in the home. Cleaning the house, playing and looking after children, helping with laundry and occasionally cooking and doing groceries.

    For spring 2021 (March to May) we are looking for someone to help us with a gardening project. We have an old garden that hasn't been maintained in recent years and we want it to do some changes there. If you have some gardening skills and new ideas that would be great! Cutting trees and bushes, some physical work but a great opportunity for someone interested in nature and creating new things.

    The farm is located in rural area so we need a helper that has a driving license. The neighbourhood is very peaceful and great opportunity to experience the beautiful nature of south Iceland.
