    Each participant just has to pick up the kiwifruit, manual and stand-up, in a kindly way, for some hours during a day, and with various typical regional and delicious coffeebreaks. It´s a light activity, for all ages (from 8 till 80), that doesn´t need special skills; the technical brieffing takes only 5 minutes. We recommend water-resistant shoes and light wear, according to weather forecast (10 to 15 Celsius degrees, average temperature).
