    We are located few minutes walk from the city of Orgiva. Our guests can live in a caravan that has space with two double beds, hand made shower and cooker. We have chickens, big but friendly dog and a cat.
    We just finished a construction of other wooden yurt. This part of land needs to be improved - garden,plants, trees, work with stones and woodm work with animals, help with children etc.

    2. The other help we need is in our stone house in the mountains. There is a walking path that takes about 20 min from the car park. There is de-clauttering ,painting,preparing wood needed.

    We just finished a construction of the wooden yurt and we need some help with the land, planting/cutting trees, garden, etc...There is always some work to do, we need a hand with animals, plants, sometimes with children, garden, de-cluttering. In the summer we tend to do things in the morning and the evening when is not that hot (for example 2-3 hours in the morning from 8 am and/or (2-3 hours in the evening), and in the winter if it's not raining. The way we organise our work in winter is on days when is not raining, if rains for instant 5 days in the week then we tend to work 2 full days when there is no rain. So we need to be flexible as a lot depends on the weather.
