Area: Amsterdam.I live alone with a cat in my cozy little house in Amsterdam, and I need a motivated person, who can help me with daily household tasks, such as cleaning, doing the groceries and cooking. My cat Lugosi needs to be brushed and given plenty of attention and love, so you should definetely love cats, if you want to come to my place. Computer skills are an optional, but also very welcome. I will only ask a few hour work every day, with a variable timetable, depending on my plans and needs; but I need a motivated, flexible and enthousiastic person, preferably over 25 years old, and ready to share a living space. I myself am very flexible and willing to share. In exchange for your work, you will get a cozy room in one of the nicest neighborhood of Amsterdam, facing the park, nice food and pleasant company. If you wish, I can also teach you some aerials, which I practice on a regular basis. This is what I really need, at the moment: -Help with cleaning and doing the shopping -Help with packing and organize my house before my next trip to Crete -Help with computer issues and music download -Language exchange in french and german Something about myself: I live part of the year in Crete, Greece, another part in Amsterdam; my main passion is the aerial tissue, which I practice three, four times a week. Occasionally I give lesson and perform. I can only accomodate one workawayer at a time; please, do not apply for more than one. Please write "Helping in Westerpark" as a subject of your email, so I can see that you actually took the time to read my profile.

Learn about organic farming through Masanobu Fukuoka’s theory “one straw revolution”. Come work beside us as we nurture, harvest , cook and share meals together. Eating is one of the most profound ways we are related to each other, to the created world, and to our creator. But the setting—193 acre Farm—will also provide a living context of cooking, feasting, and gardening together.
