Large home in SouthWest Florida that needs some interior work as well as landscaping. Two acres of property that suffered some devastation after Irma came through.

Jobs include: Outdoors: creating cement/wood/mosaic paths in yard, cutting /trimming/ planting trees, landscaping. Designing permaculture areas, pressure clean windows and building and cleaning up fallen tree debri

Home is located close to beach, baseball spring training - (Detroit Tigers, NY Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays,Baltimore Orioles, Minnesota Twins,Red Sox,)dogtracks/casino, art/cultural centers, Comedy Club, flea markets, shopping and dining, theatre. Bonita Springs is 2 hours from Miami and Tampa (Busch Gardens). We are 1/2 hour from the popular Fort Myers Beach, but 10 minutes from local beach and just North of Naples. Everglades Nat'l Park, Collier Seminole Nat'l Park, Manatee Park are some of the natural wonders where you can discover wildlife, go kayaking and hiking.

Volunteers would stay upstairs where there are 3 private rooms and a bathroom (shower/bath)where they would have their privacy. We have wifi. Free use of kitchen and living area, Pool and sitting areas outdoors. There is limited public transportation close by - a few public buses available.

I would trade accommodations with meals in exchange for 4 hours of service 5 days/week and would start with 2 weeks and discuss extension after the initial stay.
Note: We have 1 small dog (should you have allergies or problems with pets)
