We also are part of a work cooperative called Germinale involved in a community work, dedicating to bio-agriculture. We also organize classes and workshops on felt, foraging. We've been volunteer in various occasions and we know that can be a unique opportunity. We'd like to host one person preferably female, who can help us taking care in the morning with Maite our daughter and who wants to experiencing our daily rushing country life.
