  • Description


    Hi, I'm Amelie!! I'm 4 years old and live with my mum (Sara, she's english, yoga teacher, lived in Uruguay for 8 years), my 2 dogs Candy and Holi and my cat Mostaza... we are looking for fun and creative volunteers to help us develop and maintain our garden and vegetable patch (huerta) and do some odd jobs around the house. We also want to build a composting space and climbing frames for Amelie with scraps of wood we have left amongst the trees. Candy needs a lot of exercise and loves going for long walks on the beach, which we don't always have time to do. Cooking skills (especially vegetarian) always a bonus, plus washing up the dishes and helping to keep the kitchen tidy is alway appreciated!!!
