    Description

    Hi there! Hola! Hallo! Bonjour!

    We are looking for someone who can help us for +/- 4 days with some small construction work and maitainance at our olive farm.
    Construction will consist of helping with mixing concrete (we have a mill) and maitainance at the farm will consist of mowing between the trees (with a motor trimmer) , pruning and applying leave fertilizer with a pressure pump.
    You will stay at a cabin on the farm with your own bed. We love to cook so you won't be hungry! The farm is 12 km from the closest village so if you have special needs, bring them on your arrival. We can pick you up from the Village castillos and bring you to the farm.

    Preferably the day of arrival would be on Thursday and leaving on Monday morning.

    Hope to see you soon!
