Area: North Rhine WestphaliaHello! We are a cheerful, married couple, young of spirit and mind and we would love you to assist us in building/renovations and gardenening! (And more: read at the end below) We're both Dutch, but live just accross the border in Germany. We are renovating our home, a former forrester's house build in 1886. We have a playful, hyperactive dog and a sweet furball of a cat. We live on the country side, by a small forest. Our big garden offers a rural atmosphere and a view of the forest and a meadow. It's really lovely! We are looking for a couple who can help us with renovations/building and gardenwork and some household tasks. Work is rewarded with fun! We love to laugh and make jokes, enjoy a bonfire, we could take you with us to a Couchsurfing activity in the area as well! We easily converse in English, but speak Dutch fluently, basic German and a little French and Spanish. What else are we looking for? * If you know how to teach me a certain type of dancing that I like, you are also welcome!!! * Can you sand and paint? We have quite some pieces of furniture that need sanding and painting!
Area: Eungella national park, via Mackay, Nth QueenslandOur land covers over 72 acres bordered on two sides by Eungella national park, where you can find the longest continuous stretch of rainforest in Queensland. On the premises we operate our own permaculture farm; growing mangoes, lychees, bananas, and other tropical fruits, and maintaining livestock. We live a sustainable lifestyle in harmony with nature — generating our own energy from hydro and solar, and living in an energy efficient, earth-sheltered home of our own design. We run an ecotourism business from home: a flying fox through the canopy of the rainforest. We have plenty of projects on the go - building a retaining wall and car port, fencing, pruning, maintenance .... We prefer it if you can stay for at least a week as there is so much to show you. It is easier folr us if you have your own transport as we are one hour west of Mackay, North Queensland.
