    We live in a village, between Zurich and Zug, with us in the apartement are 2 cats 🐾🐾 and 3 guniea pigs.

    You are ready to start help with gardening ? ( from spring 2020 )

    We have a garden for vegetables, 🌿🌿( gardening will start in March till October/Nov.)
    We travel every year for some weeks and some weekends - for this we as well look for you to take care for our animals and the house. We do shorter and longer cycle-tours and go for swimming several times a week.
    We like cooking, with fresh vegetables, from the garden, or farms in the region.
    you could experiment with our solar cookers. Most of our bread, we do by our own.
    We produce own yoghurt, with milk from a nearby farm.

    we have breakfast together at about 7:00 or 7:30 am, we do most of the work in the mornings,
    in the afternoons, some days we do activities together, like cycling, swimming ...

    we could need you for different tasks, in the house and outside.

    you like cooking - we share cooking.
    You are welcome to cook a meal, what you like the most, or is important from your origine country.
    ( We and you do not like cooking with a lot of fat, no deep-fry, only little fry )
    we back mostly our own bread, if you never done this, we show you, you can experiment.

    As well you could care for our pets : 2 cats, 3 guinea pigs, to feed them, to play with them, to look for them, to bring the guinea pigs out to the garden in the morning, to collect them in the evening.
    There would be some chores in the house as well, some cleaning, cooking, .... , in the garden
    if we are away in this time period, you would look for the house and animals, and do your own cooking.

    ( evt. there are old fotographs, to be scanned and digitaly prepared for use on a website. )

    and : we do not use palmoil. we do not buy products, containing palm oil. whole Sumatra and Borneo and other rainforests have been destroid and replanted with not climate friendly oil palm plantations.

    min. stay : 4 weeks

    we live in a cow country, so we use cheese, milk, butter, youghurt, meat ... for cooking, backing.
