  • Description


    Last minute: landscaping and gardening.

    I own a small old house in a very quiet place on the countryside in the North East of Germany where I live with my partner. In my free time I take care of the property and try to develop the piece of land around it, which includes a small vegetable garden and meadows.
    The living conditions are rustic and close to nature without tv or disturbing noise. We love our peaceful environment. Our cat lives in- and outdoors.
    From our experience it's the best if helpers are not just willing to adapt, but also actively interested in this kind of lifestyle.

    If you are hard-working, energetic and looking for physical tasks in nature, then contact me please.

    Generally short stay of 1 week.

    French, German and English are spoken. You are welcome!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you can learn something about countrylife, organic gardening and German culture and language.
    Once a week I play jugger with my neighbours, you are welcome to join us and learn this game.
    As I value cultural exchanges I would prefer communicative, chatty people who are really interested into sharing their and our experiences.

  • Help


    I generally expect about 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week in return for food and accommodation.
    Generally in summer there are a lot of things to do like sawing and splitting wood, weeding, landscaping etc.
    The tasks are all outdoors and physical. I could need self-motivated helpers, who enjoy working outside as well as relaxing in the countryside in their free-time.
    Here you can enjoy nature while reading a book, going for a bicycle tour, walking through the nearest forest etc.

  • Accommodation


    During the day you will live with us in our old house which has simple comfort, a compost toilet, wood burning stoves and a shared bathroom. Your accomodation will be in your own little room, in an old wagon that we are renovating, about 100m from the house. There is also a nice little place to pitch a tent, which I can provide, in the garden.
    Our internet has a slow speed and a monthly limited volume, therefore it's not suitable for big uploads, downloads, movies etc.
    We try to deal carefully with resources, like water, electricity and burning wood.
