LOOKING FOR HELPERS TO HELP ME OUT WITH THE ENGLISH CLASSES AND WITH SOME WINTER MAINTENANCE!!

Hola! We are a middle-aged couple who live in a town just 23km from the beautiful old and well-know city of Santiago de Compostela (the final destination of the famous pilgrimage route). We are both very lively and lovers of nature, so, although we live in town, we spend most of the time at my mum´s organic farm (just 6km away from town).
We would really like to welcome some helpers in the farm during the winter of 2018/2019, from different spots of the world, who could give me a helping hand with my teaching and also with some winter maintenance around the house, as we have just finished converting my mum's barn into a house.

Appart from that, We basically grow lots of vegetables for the family in the kitchen garden and we also have 3 very nice dogs, 2 cats and we grow chickens. Besides, we have many fruit trees in the orchard (peaches, apples, pears, figs...). We both enjoy working in the land as it is very rewarding picking up some many nice and fresh products and then use them in the cooking. We also elaborate home-made jam with the fruit.

Therefore, we are looking for helpers who speak English (middle-aged), and would like to enjoy quietness surrounded by nature, sharing some days with us. Besides, we would love to get some help in the farm (gardening, orchard, vegetables... helpers who could do some painting and general maintenance would be perfect). In exchange, we would offer you a double bed with use of the toilets around the house and the meals (mostly products from the farm). You would even be welcomed to use the kitchen to cook your own food, if you wish.

We both love walking our dogs in the forests around, walking at the seaside, fishing, cooking... the town is only 6 km away, and there you can get everything you need and even take buses to move around Galicia.

So, if you are looking for something like this, get in touch and we will try to organise something.

Hope to hear from you!!
