    We have two houses at the same place where we work and live. In the first house we have our own business - B&B and a little "farmer" shop where we sell our own products and other local products as herbs, tea, honey, marmelade, juices and more.....
    We need mostly help with our 5000 squaremeters big garden and our new house. We cultivate our own vegetables and fruits even to the production for the Little shop. So you can be a part of that to learn cooking a lot of different Products and baking bread.
    In the second house we plan to live and there is a part of renovations to do like painting, renovation windows and taking care of a trea floor.
    We would like to build a chicken house in one of the stables and an outdoor shower.
