  • Description

    Description

    We're a family with two children (8 and 4 years old), running a permaculture project at 1300 mt. on the Swiss mountains, in a small historical village served by public transports. We have a veggie and medicinal garden, chickens and ducks. Barbara teaches permaculture and Joe is an experienced guide in wild and medicinal herbs.
    Sleeping in your own tent in our garden.
    Helps needed: gardening, building (simple constructions), cooking, housekeeping, childcare.
    French or Italian required plus patience with children and a capacity to be simple and open-minded. Arrival preferred before 6pm to not interfere with our schedule of dinner and bed time. No smoking allowed in the house, expecially when children are around. Families are welcome. Possibility for a long term volunteering, if compatibility.
