  • Description


    We are a unschooling family with three children born 2007, 2010 and 2014. We are moving now (April 2018) to an ecological cohousing project near Vienna. Our cohousing group consists of 25 adults (from 29 to 63) and 11 kids (from 2 to 10). What we mostly need there is help of craftsmen or persons who like doing manual work like constructing with wood, helping in the garden or at our biological agriculture. Or also persons helping us keeping our wooden house with clay walls as confortable as it is now. Or cooking meals with our fresh vegetables from our fields.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The workawayers we had until now liked a lot the landscape where our cohousing project is. Its not far away from the Danube river side with a lot of interesting places (like the Wachau) and Vienna is just one hour away. And the workawayers also told us, that they loved to get known to a lot of different people with diferent skills (gardening, building with straw and clay, carpenting) in our cohousing group.

  • Help


    On the one hand we would like to have someone in the house to help us with the housekeeping and cook delicious meals with our fresh vegetables and local products. On the other side we also need craftsmen for our cohousing project, f.e. help in restoring a historic wine cellar, or help on our vegetable fields, or in the garden, or more general in small building or construction projects.

    From our cohousing project it is very easy to go to Vienna and other places of interest (f.e. by public transport. Or with some of our group, who work in Vienna and travel there daily). We also have a bicycle we can provide for the stay.
    We would love to have a person with us, which participates with her own ideas in our family and cohousing life. For us ecological values are very important, and the unschooling approach which taught us that every person, also children, have there own feelings and needs, and their very own life task which only each person for herself can discover.
