  • Description


    We are a couple living on an orangery (a grove of various orange trees) on the outskirts of Tazerka in the Governorate of Nabeul; the orange trees were planted some 60 years ago, so the agricultural activity is very limited, but it is nice to be surrounded by fruit trees and other trees that we planted for the pleasure! As weel as see around peacocks, a few hens and 3 geese...

    The buildings are traditional architecture; our home as well as the studio which can accommodate volunteers.
    We live there and have one salaried worker mostly for the agricultural tasks and some other tasks at other periods of the year. So that leaves him little time to do other chores.

    That is why we need seasonal volunteers to help with gardening (mostly cleaning and trimming); miscellaneous types of handiwork (among them painting or helping with the traditional annual whitewashing of outer walls).
    The other great help possible is with our many pets (dogs and cats). I do need help for periodic tasks like giving flea treatment or treating ear mite problems, or giving a shower to dogs... and for the daily meal serving... but of course, cuddling dogs and cats is most welcome!
    Helping with cooking or taking in charge cooking meals from time to time is most welcome too!

    Autres infos...

    On free time it is easy for volunteers to go out to short distance places like Korba (just out of Korba is the Africa Jade center including shops, restaurant, coffee shop) or Nabeul or Hammamet. Collective taxis are available and the fares are very cheap. At warm periods of the year it is possible to swim in the sea (1.4 km from here). Also for those interested by birdwatching, there are four wetlands along the shore close by, the nearest being along the beach of Tazarka, the village nearby, hosting many species of wild birds.
