I am about 50, lived many years abroad and now back to Germany I am a student at the University of Kassel. I am used to live with younger people in communities. I love music, books, hiking, travelling, nature adventures, Design, History and Culture.
Heimwerker- und Bauarbeiten
Its the village of "Little-Red- Ridinghood", the country of the German Fairy tales (written by Brothers Grimm). The next big city is Kassel, famous for its museums, Park Wilhelmshöhe ( Unesco heritage). In the other direction is Marburg, one of the oldest universities of Germany, very oldstyle and romantic archtitecture. If you are interested you can learn a lot about the history and local culture as well as some technical know how and gardening.
I usually like to host more than one workaway, so its also a place, where you may meet other workaways.
I got two houses to take care of. One is a modern bungalow, which needs upstyling and gardening.
The other one is an 300 year old typical German Fachwerkhouse, which needs renovation and full gardening as it will be transformed into a biological garden/ eco project. This house is 15km away from where I live.
In July I need help painting walls
In general there is lots of garden work so digging, planting, etc. There are also some creativ jobs to do as redo the pathways ( create a pattern), stairs and low walls for planting herbs and strawberry with natural stones, constructing gates/arches and a hut/tipi out of thick branches, weaving a fence out of thin flexibel branches etc.
Indoors work is f.ex. taking of wallpaper, painting, plastering and other tasks.
You do not have to be skilled in all of that, but should be able to work autonomous.
Usually we work half-day.
Französisch: Gute Kenntnisse
At the moment the accomodation is in the new house, where I have several rooms. You will have your own room and a shared bathroom.
I provide breakfast and dinner (lunch depending, often sandwiches as we are outside) and in summer we do a lot of BBQ.
As I got a huge house and the old one will soon become another place to live, I can offer enough space for quarantine, just in case.
The villages are in the center of Germany , all trains north-south stop here and stops of Flixbus are closeby. Some workaways took advantage of its central location and popped in few times.
Its a good place for cycling, jogging and long-distance-hiking, next to the house is a glider airport (often free rides). In summer there are lakes for swimming and canoeing .
