  • Description

    Description

    We are Su and Wolfgang and moved to Drahnsdorf 7 years ago. It's a small old house and a huge garden. We don't have enough time, to manage everything alone, so we need your help! The garden needs structure, the weeds need to be erased, the grass to be mown and so on...We don't have a special project (yet), but want to have a nice place to live, to be with friends and neighbours and maybe work here too later.
    We are "all-eaters", seasonal and regional. If you need/want any special nutrition, just let us know.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are close to Berlin (1h 15m) and not far from Spreewald. You can go sightseeing, visit museums and have a boat trip in a surrounding that looks a little like jungle as well. If you want, we can improve your German (I - Su - used to work as a German teacher), you can learn about Kinesiology, Sweet Medicine (a shamanic path) and several massage techniques. Maybe enjoy a massage? As I am an actress and singer, we can also work with your voice. Wolfgang is a musician (mostly guitar but open for other instruments :-) ) and he used to work as an audio engineer for a long time. So if you are interested in studio work, here is a chance!

    There are lots of tasks in the garden and also several things in the house to do. Create structure in the garden with small walls and/or hills, seed, foster and harvest, mowing. Ideas are welcome! "Seeding time" is coming....
    Paint walls, maybe lay some bricks, build a shelf - there are enough possibilities so we can find the things you are capable of and have fun with.
    In general it helps, if you are not afraid of a chain-saw and like to ride our ride-on mower!
    We have a dog and a cat, so you should like animals. Walk the dog is very helpful, too.
    Maybe there are some things we didn't think of now, but together we will find the right way to provide us all a great time!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a room we can offer, but we can't take out everything. The house isn't very big, so.... From time to time we might need something that is in this room. Of course you will have your privacy and we definitely won't just storm in. We have an air bed, or if you don't like that, we can lay a mattress on the floor. If you want to, you can also sleep in a tent. Bathroom, kitchen and dining room we will use together. Our schedule is very different everyday, so there are no "eating times". We hope, we can eat together often, but you should be able - and happy with - to also eat alone or at another time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a train station in Drahnsdorf, but we can also bring you to another station about 20 km away, if the schedule doesn't fit with your plans.
    Even if it's a very small village, there are usually other workawayers around. So there is a chance to not only meet people from Germany, but also from other parts of the world! :-)
