和歌山県田辺市上秋津に住んでいます。世界遺産の熊野古道は近く、メインルートの発心門~本宮大社への交通手段は車やバスで約1時間くらいです。熊野古道や高野山を訪れる観光客は、よく田辺市に立ち寄ります。また、田辺市は梅とミカンの町。自然豊かで、白良浜にも隣接しています。人も温厚で親切で、話しやすい人が多いと思います。

家族は6人家族です。私(学習塾やその他)、妻(環境、オーガニックなど様々な活動をしています。)、娘2人(20歳、会社員)、(19歳フリーター)、10歳の息子(小4)、私の母(67歳、農業手伝い)がいます。ウーファーさんは、家の2階の1人部屋を用意していて、睡眠は快適にとれます。

私たちは農業もやっています。妻が梅とみかん、米と小麦、野菜などやってます。作業は比較的軽めです。

ウーファーさんにしてもらいたいお手伝いは、農業、塾での英会話です。また、時々息子と一緒に遊んだりして過ごしたり、お菓子作りなどしてもらうと助かります。お手伝いは1日6時間が目安ですが、多少増減する場合は、翌日のお手伝いの時間などで調整します。

今までにやってもらったお手伝い
・梅の収穫
・食事の準備、片付け
・子ども達と一緒にお菓子作り
・英語の授業
・脱穀
・農地の整備
・枝ひらい
・肥料まき
・簡単な事務処理
・買い物
・フランス語レッスン

ウーファーさんと休日に出かけたこともあります。
・熊野古道歩きと本宮大社見学
・日本三大名瀑・那智の滝と那智大社見学
・日本最古の湯・湯の峰温泉(60分)
・ナショナルトラスト運動発祥の天神崎見学(30分)
・野菜の直売所巡り
・白良浜
We also do agriculture. My wife and mother grow plums, mandarin oranges, rice, wheat, and vegetables. The work is relatively light.

The help I would like Woofer to help with is farming and English conversation at cram school. Also, it would be helpful if you could play with your son from time to time or have him make some sweets for you. The guideline is to help for 6 hours a day, but if you need more or less time, we will adjust the amount of help the next day.

Help received so far
・Plum harvest
・Meal preparation and cleanup
・Make sweets with the children
・English class
·threshing
・Agricultural land maintenance
・Branch opening
・Fertilizer spreading
・Simple paperwork
·shopping
・French lessons

I once went on a holiday with Woofer.

・Visit Nachi Falls, one of Japan's three most famous waterfalls, and Nachi Taisha Shrine
・Japan's oldest hot spring, Yunomine Onsen (60 minutes)
