  • Description


    Roberto and I (Maria) live on a little farm 100 km from central Buenos Aires, the capital of Argetina. We grow vegetables and share our quiet life with three lovely cats, and a very energetic dog called Tito.
    We need help with making and tending to a vegetable garden. There is also a variety of other tasks to help with here for five hours a day.
    Neither of us are vegetarian, but I enjoy making and eating vegetarian style dishes. We provide breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks (merienda etc).
    Playing tennis at our local club is one of our passions, as well as working and being outdoors.
    I have travelled as a workawayer in the past, and enjoyed learning about such different cultures that I decided to do it with my own home.
    Smoking is allowed but only outide.
