    *COVID hosting* While we are very relaxed by nature, we live with our mother so we are trying to be cautious during this time - but we still want to make space for people who need it and are stuck without other places to stay. Any new workawayers will need to stay in a little cabin down by the lake (no electricity or running water. Outhouse bathroom) for the first couple weeks to maintain isolation. We can share meals outside and there is a little work shed near our house that has internet access. We have had one workawayer do this so far and she said it was fine.

    We are a family of 4 living on a 5 acre property that backs onto a lake, has a river out front, and is surrounded by proper forest (that basically has no end). There are a lot of really nice hiking trails in the area and we have a canoe to take out on the lake. We built our own house (with some workawayer help!) in 2018, and are continually working to improve our land and construct outbuildings.

    We are a very welcoming family who love to travel (in her first two years of life our daughter visited over 14 countries) and genuinely delight in getting to know other people on a deep level. People who live with us learn quickly that we are very hard to offend and extremely easy going. Our house has always been very open and we are known for cramming as many bodies as will fit into our house because we love having a people around.

    We are currently looking for helpers with some level of experience with manual labour or construction and would prefer to accept two workers at a time. Right now we could use help with cleaning up dead wood in the forest, chopping back blackberry bushes, animal care (chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits), gardening, finishing mini cabins and building a woodshed.

    Guests can stay in one of the small cabins on the property. We have a cute little cabin close to the lake. The cabin does not have any amenities so you will be living with an outhouse, battery powered lights and a camp stove. We also have a shed closer to the house that has electricity, a hotplate and internet.

    Our kids, are 8 and 5 years old. They are creative kids who love to play outside, dance and draw. They are each others favourite people and do a good job of looking out for one another. Both kids understand German but always respond in English. The daughter is in French immersion school and is getting to be a confident speaker. The father of the house speaks German and French fluently and is quite capable in a few other languages as well (if you speak another language he would love to learn it). The mother of the house could teach you about local edible and medicinal plants if you are interested.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    An opportunity to learn construction, finishing and gardening skills. Learn how to use a chainsaw for milling wood. There is also opportunity to fish and learn about indigenous plants and their uses (I am a bit geeky about it). We have experience living in other countries so we always try and do our best to make others enjoy their travel time with us and can direct you to the best sites to see in the area.
