Are you looking for a week to 10 days of hard work and fun? We will need help with olive picking and other Fall chores in the gardens in the last weeks of October this year. We will be done by Nov 5 so please don't apply for any other times! We have a medium sized homestead with several gardens, a few chickens and other bits, all of which need care. We also care for several other gardens in the area and can use help.You will have opportunities to learn about Mediterrean plants and culture, as well as see the beautiful area in which we live. Duties include weeding, planting, mowing, strimming and other garden work and occasional repairs and construction chores. Varied experiences guaranteed! Delicious home cooked meals are included and lodging is in your own private apartment in exchange for a 4-5 hour work day- not a long day just one where we get the work done. Schedules are flexible and we are happy to help you get around and get the most out of your stay in our lovely part of the world. English and some Italian spoken. Internet access. We are looking for 1 or 2 helpers. Get in touch now if you are interested.
Ciao, Bruce and Jan
