  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four: Jacko from Quebec and Anna from Catalunya, a boy and a girl, both aged 9, We live in a village called Arbúcies, in Girona, Catalunya. It is settled in the beautiful Montseny Natural Park, one hour from Barcelona and 30 min from Costa Brava.
    We live off the produce from our ecological garden, which is a 10 minute drive away.
    We are looking for people to help out with gardening work on the organic farm, and also some specially trained workers to help with some jobs in the traditional house we have just moved in to.
    We have a bathroom which needs to be fitted, a heating system which needs completing and some carpentry and electrician work. We are also interested in building a greenhouse with the bamboo growing in the garden.
    Any help will be exchanged for a lovely room, great food and a warm welcome.
    Please be in touch, especially if you have professional building experience.
