  • Description


    Adrian & Jill. We currently have 4 projects around the Thouars area of Deux-Sevres in Nouvelle Aquitaine, France. We are looking help landscaping our main property, 2 riverside plots and several cottages/gites. We are also looking for help with the property renovations and building works. Experience appreciated but not necessary as training will be given. We have a private riverside plot for leisure activities that requires some work but it is often available for use by Workawayers. We have 2 separate vegetable plots and are looking fresh inputs/ideas. Being competent gardeners we also offer training/teaching.
