  • Aide


    There is always gardening, domestic, maintenance work and building type projects for which extra hands are always a bonus to get things moving a bit faster.

    I am doing renovation works all the time; during March, April and May I'd be renovating the attic, building some extra shower rooms and laying the ground work for new work shops. So help with cementing, plasterboarding, plumbing and painting would be great.

    Also during the spring we would like to put more energy into outdoorprojects.
    Setting up a irrigation scheme via pumping water from the well.
    Gardening; setting up a poly tunnel, preparing seed beds for vegetables, starting a herb garden and clearing parts of the garden and meadow for flowers. for which it would be great to get some help mainly during spring time.
