  • Description

    Description

    We're a family with two children (9 and 5 years old), running a permaculture project on the Swiss mountains.
    Barbara teaches permaculture and Joe is an experienced guide in wild and medicinal herbs.
    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. Families are welcome. Possibility for a long term volunteering, if compatibility.
