Help with gardening urgently needed. From Saturday 11 April for a week or two.

200 year old stone farmhouse in the Drome Provencale: north of Provence, in the foothills of the Alps. Cotes du Rhone wine production; Nyons olives; great walking and cycling (the Tour de France passes by every couple of years en route to Mont Ventoux). Rural - but the market town of Nyons with bars and cinema and weekly market is only 8 kilometres away. House has wifi, pool, central heating. It operates as whole house rental in the summer, and a mixture of b and b, seminars, smaller rentals out of the main season.

Help required depends on the season and the occupancy ( It's unlikely that we can accommodate you between July and August) and the sort of project and skills that our helpers bring. It can include range from help in the house and the permaculture garden through to renewing crumbling terracing, landscaping projects, redecorating.

Ability to work on own initiative a must.

Please remember that Helpxing works on an equal commitment on both sides. I've been let down 3 times recently by potential Helpxers who have decided at the last moment (once with less than 24 hours notice) to go to another host. As well as the effort I put in to help with the Helpxer's travel arrangements, I'm also working out work schedules, bringing in materials if required, making ready accommodation, and so on. And it's likely that I am turning away other offers of help.

So after the initial contacts and communication, please be ready to commit. If you are concurrently exploring other offerings, I'd like you to be honest enough to tell me.
