  • Description


    I am an American but have lived only in Germany. Presently I live in an attractive apartment in Wiesbaden, an elegant and safe city center with good transportation 40 km southwest of Frankfurt. The main train station is five minutes away.
    My landlord, she is in her mid 80's lives on the ground floor and has a problem with men going in and out of my third floor apartment. But women are okay for her. She seems a little worried and too old to understand. So because she feels more comfortable with women, I therefore only ask women to send requests. Unfortunatelly I can not accept men or couples! Thank you for your understanding.

    I would like to host and cook for/with you or at community cooking events I organize, show you around and teach you a little about Germany if you like. In exchange I am thankful for further help you can offer in my appartment and garden.

    I always need help in general house work in my apartment (65 m²). If you like to cook and use the kitchen, there isave plenty of healthy food you can cook for yourself, for us or when I find time I love to cook as well. Usually I cook for many people and invite more people to join.
    My bikes need to be maintained once in a while and I do not have any talent for that and I am not patient enough to to sew small holes or rips in clothes and need sewing work, with hand and needle or with my sewing machine.
    My small garden does not want to grow in a jungle so I would be glad if you help cut hedges, pick berries, etc.

    My big pleasure is working as a community cook against food waste at all different kinds of occasions. I organzise many different events with veggies from Farmers that do not not look perfect enough for food stores and consumers.

    During the warm season I organize community cooking events with veggies/fruit I get for free from farmers and food stores to make people more aware of reducing food waste and use up what is there.

    There is work to be done during the day or in the evening, depending on when you would prefer to explore the beautiful surroundings. On some dates when I do public cooking events I will always need your help if you are here. That is about 3-5 times a month, in fall during the harvest more often.
    The famous Rhine river along with many castles is very close to where I live, and there is plenty more to see and experience, for example the cathedrale of Mainz on the other Rhine River side is over 1000 years old and Wiesbaden where I live has 26 hot springs. No other city in the world has so many hot springs and Wiesbaden is the 2nd or 3rd richest city in Germany.
    I like making cooking or dinner parties and hosting people from all around the world :) Perhaps you know how to play an instrument and like to practice in front of a small audience or at my puclic cooking events :) You can find me on facebook.
