Our family lives with me (Maria, 59) and three grown up and mostly moved out sons (22, 27, 32 years old) at the countryside in Carinthia, Austria. The next small city Völkermarkt is 6 km away, Klagenfurt 24 km. We have got an old stall beside and 4500 m2 land around with hedges and trees to maintain. So if you really can work with a chainsaw to cut trees, we would be pleased if you want to help us for one or two weeks.
We expect you to help maximum 5 hours/day five days/week and offer you mostly vegetarian food if you want and accomodation in a small room in our house. In your spare time you may swim in the Klopeinersee (12 km), enjoy the quiet location and go on hiking trips around the beautiful area.
