We are an international (Italian-Hungarian) family, Gioacchino, Kinga and our little toddler Giulia. We live in a little town called Lercara Friddi, halfway between Palermo and Agrigento cities. We are looking for a female baby sitter to play with Giulia, go out with her to the park etc. Generally we need help in the afternoons because in the morning she is at the nursery until 13:00.
We have a little agricultural business near the town where we have olive trees, and we have an agri-food "lab" where we do preserves, jams and other Sicilian food specialties. Currently we are working on our e-commerce as well. So if you are interested in Sicilian traditional foods you are welcome.
If you would like to come and help us, feel free to contact us.

They will receive accommodation and meals. They will learn about farming. I also make wine so in season they can also learn about making wine. They will meet other Sicilian farmers and visit their farms too. They will pick up some Italian as well as Sicilian language. From Lercara Friddi they can easily take a Bus trip to either Palermo or Agrigento to visit these beautiful cities.
Planting and harvesting vegetables, depending on season. Harvesting olives. Watering and clearing the land. Working in the transformation lab to make jams, tomatoes products. Helping with the cleaning of the lab after a day working. All under supervision
