200 acre coffee and chocolate plantation in El Salvador with 125 year old Hacienda built by my great grandfather. I have been restoring the house and converting the coffee to organic over the past 5 years.

The finca employs 7 full-time people and offers an opportunity to practice Spanish, pick coffee during Nov/Dec., and experience a real plantation in Central America.

I need carpentry help to build some interior doors between guest rooms, repair existing doors and windows, and build a veranda railing around the porch. I have electric tools and good hardware stores are available.

I am also interested in building an earth oven for breadmaking and would like to restore a outbuilding that is made from wooden framing and mud. I don't know how to do this myself, so would need someone with experience.

Other areas where your expertise would be welcome are: building a pond/small lake, developing a nature trail around the property, butterfly cultivation, small bird breeding, and building compost boxes with instruction on how to maintain them.

I offer a private room with two beds, shared bathroom, free high-speed internet, all meals, and a happy environment.
