    Hello workawayers!

    We are Melina and Jörg living in northern Germany around 12 km from the North Sea. Together with Jörgs mother we own a house in the countryside. Moreover Jörgs twelve-year-old daughter is here to visit her dad regularly.
    We have some chicken, ducks and budgerigars as well as a big garden.

    The next small town with shopping possibilities, train station, etc. is not far from here and can be reached by bike in less than ten minutes.

    We both have office jobs whereas we like to work in our garden and the house in our freetime. We grow vegetables, herbs and fruits and try to create a cosy home for us and our (soon-to-be) animals. Upcycling is a big talking point here! We do not like standard renovating which undisputed leads to longer working periods. But ... good things come to those who wait! ;)

    Apart from our normal jobs we work or volunteer on different music festivals in Germany and Sweden a few times a year. So we absolutely love music! Our home contains two pianos, a guitar, a ukulele, a child drum kit, a didgeridoo, etc. But unfortunately we are no professionals in at least one of them. :D

    Both of us speak German as our mother tongue, proper English and we are learning Swedish. Melina also speaks a bit French.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are searching for people who are not afraid of sharing the rooms and especially the daily life (very important!!!) with us. You should have an open mind on being a part of our family.
    We do not like to host people who would just like to spend time on their own.

    In case you like to cook or bake we absolutely like to have a taste of your traditional dishes.

    Improving your German skills will be no problem as we gladly would like to help you. On the other hand we are also very interested in catching some new words in your language and in learning something about your culture.

  • Arbeit

    Arbeit

    Primary you can help us in the garden and with our animals (watering the plants, lawn mowing, feeding animals, cleaning stables/cages, planting, harvesting and conserving crops and herbs, pulling up weeds, etc.) as well as in the house. (cooking, cleaning, clearing out stuff etc.)

    Furthermore we need help with various building projects (greenhouse, raised beds, furniture, painting, loft conversion etc.) and repair work inside and outside.

    We neef to find people who like to work in a team but are also willing to manage tasks on their own and can take care of the animals, garden and house when we are working on a festival for a few days or on any other trip. But don't be afraid - you will never be all alone!

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    We offer our living room for you to sleep in. You can use our two-person sofa bed. (There is also a living room suite, so no one will have to use your bed during your stay.)

    Sometimes it is also possible to offer a bed in the children's room.

    Bath room, guest toilet, kitchen, dining room and our bar will be shared - also of course our big garden with the garden shed.

    As we are still renovating the rooms bit by bit (and almost only in wintertime when there is less to do outside) you will not find the most modern environment everywhere.

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    Usually we can only offer a double bed/sofa. So we are searching for a single person, a couple or a mother/father with child.

    Sometimes it is also possible to offer a bed in the children's room.

    Usually we cook fresh, sugar-free, gluten-free and often vegetarian. But you will also find fish and meat on our menu.
