  • Beschreibung


    We are a young family with two children 6 and 9 years old. We have lived around the world- mamma Elin is from Sweden and Papa Sam is of English, French and South African heritage. Both Elin and Sam work within the area of environmental sustainability/ climate change resilience. We love being in nature and often go on hikes or go snorkelling, surfing or body boarding in the beautiful sea. We go camping as much as we can. We also love music and art and have a great community of creatives around us.

    Until end of the year we are looking for help in our Cape Town home and as of 2022 we are looking for volunteers who love nature, kids and animals with an interest in permaculture to help us as we embark on a new adventure- moving to a small holding in the forest near Knysna, Garden Route. We will be developing our permaculture paradise and will need help to develop our food gardens, play with kids, take care of four horses and two dogs. An interest in nature play and a knowledge of horses is definitely a plus.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We live in a southern suburb of the beautiful Cape Town, about half an hour drive from the centre of town. Our house is located in the cute Muizenberg village, a two minutes walk to one of the longest beaches in South Africa, which also happens to be the best beach to learn how to surf and fifteen minutes walk to the mountain which hosts some very beautiful hikes with endless sea views. There are numerous national parks nearby to be explored as well as interesting cultural places to visit. Muizenberg is a young and happening place and there are plenty of interesting classes and offerings, from learning Xhosa to dance, yoga, capoeira and numerous art classes.

    As of 2022 we will be able to offer a stay on a 6 ha small holding surrounded by forest whilst still cycling distance from Knysna with coffee shops and other conveniences. We will be located centrally in the Garden Route which offers an extraordinary amount of nature experiences. The Gouna forest, the largest piece of indigenous forest in South Africa hosting wild elephants and caracals will be our back yard......

  • Arbeit


    We are working parents and need help with child care and taking kids to activities such as dancing and swimming. If you can drive then we will appreciate if you can help driving to and from school as well. Other duties include some gardening, walking the dog and helping with some shopping and cooking when needed. At times we may ask for babysitting in the evenings. Our children are bilingual though their English is definitely better than their Swedish. We would love to have a Swede who could help improve their Swedish but are also open to other nationalities and our kids learning some other languages like Spanish, Portuguese and French. Having a valid drivers license and experience driving is definitely a plus.

    As of 2022 we will be looking for volunteers to help develop food gardens and other projects on our small holding. We will also need help with child care and would appreciate people who are into nature play and forest adventures. We will also have horses and two dogs and will need help with some animal care.

    There are so many things to explore in Cape Town, whether you're interested in learning to surf, hike, do social work or art or music- there is something here for everyone. We have friends who run surf schools who offer lessons for beginners and can also offer links to local NGO's and cool community initiatives doing good things.
