Programa detallado

There are various jobs on our land at the moment more are suitable for the experienced land workers/gardeners/builders. Besides the day to day activities like working in the vegetable garden, caring for the fruit trees and animals there is always some projects going on. The day to day work might be done on your own (after you have been properly thought/instructed what to do), but the projects is something we will do together.
