  • Description


    I am looking for one or two workawayers for the first week of July: from Sunday of June to Saturday of July (or less).
    I need help to cast a concrete deck for my terrace (3x5 meters). It will take a day or two, and you need a firm and strong arm to steer the wheelbarrow :-)
    Also help with painting and gardening is welcome.
    We are living on an old farm very near the coast of Bornholm, near Helligdomsklipperne.
    We have no animals, but a big natural garden and fields teaming with wildlife.
    We have been travelling a lot and living abroad, and we are both social and easy-going.
    We will help you see as much of our beautiful island as possible.
