  • Description


    Hi There. I'm Ulrike and I live with my adult son Anno and my husband Gerhard in a small village in lower saxony. I work half a day in a school and Gerhard is already pensioner.
    But most of the time we are artisan where we spend the weekends on markets around our region. Over there we sell mostly silhouettes, which I saw from wood.
    The christmas season is our main business, where we have to do a lot of work.
    In total we have 5 children, 4 of them already moved out. We are still living in our big frame house, which is great but also a lot of things needs to be done there.

    In decembre 2015, we are happy to welcome Maddie from California. If you want to spend some time with us as a workawayer, let us talk about a period in 2017.

    What else ...

    Our town, Dassel, is small. There are only some shops (of course a supermarket), its a great place if you are a fan of nature cause of the wooden area (Solling). In addition its located pretty much in the middle of Germany. That means you can reach Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne within 3-4 hours.
    We would like to integrate you a bit in our big family. So be sure that we will be generous with our time, borrow you a bike and drive you with our car (or borrow it to you)
