  • Description


    We (a couple in the fifties) live in the North of Germany at the Baltic Sea in Mecklenburg Western-Pomerania, near Rostock in Groß Siemen.
    There we have a rose garden (5 hectares and 30 hectares surrounding leased out meadows) The court consists out of the old manor house from 1883, the orangerie, the old park and the rose garden.
    We are a family of 6 person, but now all the children are in the world history to study and live. So only my husband Dieter and I are here and our children visit us whenever it goes and our youngest child(18) is still now in England to workaway.
    So it would be glad, when you want to come and help us and teach us about your culture and language.

  • Help


    The work includes all gardening (spring, summer, autumn) such as mowing or weeding, replanting, care of green hedges and trees and cutting this, picking fruit, maintenance in vegetable garden and also sometimes helping in Bed and Breakfast and helping at weddings or other events in the main season (June, July, August). It would be great, but in no case neccesary, if you are talentet in helping in the kitchen or helping in perserving fruit. Sometimes there are some Little projects for example building a pavilion. Other tasks would be to feeding our ducks (20) and peacocks (4) and 2 dogs.
