*The first of the plums trees has started to blossom, a beautiful sight. Must get on and finish the fruit tree pruning NOW! Why not come and give us a hand*

We are an English family living in a small French Village in Poitou-Charentes.

We have an orchard with around 30 mature trees including walnut, cherry, plum, apple, pear, peach, quince and vines; a large vegetable plot and small number of ducks, geese and chickens.

We are looking for one person or a couple to help us tame our orchard and maintain productivity in the vegetable plot. There are a number of trees which need pruning, mulching and general care. Knowledge would be helpful but not essential and the work would not be too demanding - No more than a few hours a day. Ideally this work will happen during the spring.

With the age of the house and the out buildings there is always additional tasks to be completed alongside the gardening. Again, none of this would be too technical or strenuous.

In return we can offer a self contained bedroom with separate kitchenette and shower room with toilet in our house. Main meals are taken with the family. Free internet access using your own laptop or a machine provided for your exclusive use if required.

We always aim to cook using as much of our own produce as possible.

The village has some amenities and is 7 KMs from the nearest town. Bikes are available for your use.

The nearest airport and TGV is one hour away. Transfers provided.
