  • Description


    Last year a young couple with two young children was using my garden and the gardenhouse. Unfortunately the garden and the small house went out of control. Now it is too much work for an old but active lady like me to keep up in renovating and gardening, pruning small trees, lawnmowing (150 sqm) weeding etc.

    The gardenhouse has 40 sqm, the garden 300 sqm, under the roof is a bedroom with insulation, which needs to be finished. Complete kitchen and a shower inside, terrace and kitchen and solarshower outside.

    For 2021 the main things to do are: Laquering and painting one metal door, gardening, weeding.
    Please ask me if you need more information.

    20-25 hr. weekly/ for free room and basic food. Public transportation 50 m distance from the garden.
    Average stay was about 2 weeks.

    Smoking in the house is strictly prohibited. No drugs, no alc. Internet access there is limited but about 1 km away is open internet at BK. A LIDL supermarket is close by with fresh rolls in the morning.

    I love traveling, cooking and baking, cycling, tennis, fishing and gardening... being a workawayer 2015 - 2016 . Had a lot of fun during this time traveling with my own campervan. I love to share my experiences.

    I will help in language training, show how to cook with local ingredients, meeting some people of the intl. community here in town. A bicycle for local exploring could be provided.

    If interested I could take you to my tennis club to play sometimes ... only during Summer. A temporary membership will be offered for small money (4 weeks about 20,00 €). Meet also the Berliner slow pitch/fast pitch Softball league (looking for guest players every weekend). Only during summer.

    For 2021 main things to do are: Gardening, painting, weeding, laquering. Usually in July helping to make Marmelade and wine of homegrown fruits.

    Helping me organizing my van with ideas and interieur if you are experienced.

    I am preferring people who think about our surroundings and resources. Saving water and energy is important to me since we are having only one planet!
