During the summer, I need help taking for of the garden holiday house. There is a fun tractor you can drive around to cut the grass, a weed eater... you can do all the tasks in a day, and have the next day all for yourself to explore. Also, there are berries to be picked up and other fruits (all 100% organic!!!). Have fun making jams and find other ways to store them for the winter.
Task 2: 14-22 July 2019
Every year I organize in my house in the Alps (Arco area) a week, 100/100 in English, about environmental education. The kids (about 17 this year) are primary school student that visit us 9 to 4. During the camp, I need help looking after my son Raffaello (1 year old). We will be following all the kids in their daily exploration of the forest around my house (this year theme are the insect!), build houses, play... the camp is a lot of fun! You must like kids of course! I also will need help setting and unsetting the camp (build gazebo, move forniture, cut grass, prepare material for the labs...). Overall it is a lot of hardwork, but 100/100 fun! We can decide together the best hours for you to help.
English, Italian, German
Task 1: You will sleep in the apartment upstairs, in the living room bed. You will be sharing the apartment with Giulia, a kind girl that works at the local horse-riding center. I am in Germany most of the time, so you will probably be there with Giulia alone.
Task 2: One room from the holiday apartment during the summer camp.
During the summer camp:
There will be another educator from Peru staying with us. I encourage to be all together as a family, in the free time there is a lake close by, sighting (arco, trento, riva del garda...), hiking... on the weekend after the camp, after the clean up, i enjoy a 2 days backpacking trip to the mountains to enjoy the silence...
