  • Description

    Description

    I live in a tiny village by the sea where I run a little guesthouse business. I started a vegetable garden recently. I try to use the fruit hanging in the trees to make conserves etc, and during the winter make some decoration, painting, cleaning, gardening and construction works in the guesthouse and surrounding land.
    We'd most likely be working together from ca. 9-13h, have lunch, then14h-15h again, and then have the rest of the day for ourselves.

    At the moment (nov-dec) I need help mostly for tidying up storage rooms, furniture restauration, white washing inside walls, move furniture, making a fire to burn old wood, possibly some small bio-construction experiments, and work in the vegetable garden if possible, which is yet unsure because I'm waiting for the rain to start it again. Almond cracking.
