    We have 8000 m2 of fruit trees (not commercialized) with 1 small guest house for friends and guests, need some help to assist in the maintenance of the garden and associated machinary. Pet sitting (1 dog 2 cats) is a plus.

    I will need someone with some technical skills or willingness to learn as there is always small maintenance going on at home (masonry, plumbing, electricity…) for exemple, A bathroom in the tractor garage is needed to be built actually I am doing most of the work myself in all disciplines and will enjoy a companion to help, also this includes helping me in general maintenance of fruit tree farm, so cutting the trees in February-March, cutting grass 1 time per month, planting: we have plan to plant some new 10 fruit trees to replace older ones, also we would like to do some landscaping with new plants and develop the watering system…

    We are happy to learn about eco friendly farming as we are using any chemicals or fertilizer.
