  • Description


    We are a family of 5 with 3 active boys and a small dog that keep us busy 😊 We live in the stunning country side of switzerland close to the cities of Solothurn and Bern. We are settling in nicely in our new house but the outdoor still needs a lot of work!! We would like a natural setting with a permaculture approach and play space for the kids.

    We are an active family who love to get out about and visit the beautiful places here in Switzerland, especially the mountain regions and we always enjoy having some company.
    It would be lovely to have some help around the house and with the kids and right now especially with our garden and doggy! We have a veg garden that is ever expanding (fingers crossed) 😜 If you are skilled in permaculture that would be awesome!!!! 🌲 (but not a problem if you are not)

    We would love to get a personal message from you as we have 3 small children and it is a privilege to open our house but we want to be safe and for people who want to stay with us to show a little extra effort. So if you really do read our Profile, please mention in your message what your favourite vegetarian/vegan dish is, and we will welcome you on your first day of workawaying with that dish 😊

    Public transport is excellent in switzerland and we are more than happy to take you with us on outings if we go places.
    You will have your own room (mostly!) and a shared bathroom (we live very modestly) and free use of our vegetarian/vegan kitchen 😊 (and of course WIFI)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can give you a loving environment and you can learn about natural child raising, homeschooling or unschooling, vegetarian/vegan cooking, music (my husband is in a band and I jodel in a folcloric choir), sewing, crafting, preserving. We love to spend time hiking, taking trips around switzerland and enjoy the breathtaking nature here 😊 Since we started a family we are also actively downsizing for 10 years now, have less - live more!
