we are creating a small vegan community near Bautzen, about an hour away from Dresden and we need some help with renovation and planting trees.
Important notice: We have right now only a few rooms with installed heating systems and they are all more than occupied with some workawayers and guests until spring 2016.
If you are a carpenter who knows how to build a veranda and / or a carport, we would be very happy if you could get in touch with us for a period after march 2016.
Our community currently consists of eight people, three couples, one elderly woman, one infant, three dogs and quite a few cats.
Right now only three of us are living in the house. The two other couples are living elsewhere until spring 2016.
We need help with all kinds of renovation work, large and small things, especially laying tiles, plastering walls, and building dry board walls and ceilings. If you have experience in these areas - great. If not, don't worry, we can show you what needs to be done.
Also we want to plant many fruit trees and bushes on our 8000 sqm garden. We will start with this around april 2016.
We are nice guys, so we won't push you to work with us too hard, our foremost concern ist that you are happy while staying here with us.
We would love to share accomodation, vegan food and conversation with you in exchange for some hours of help.
We can show you the village and the city of Bautzen and if you stay longer with us, we could go with you on the weekend to Dresden and other nice places and show you around.
Some friendly word of caution: We are a vegan community and we expect that you would like to experience a vegan lifestyle with us, and that you don't eat any products containing meat, fish or eggs while staying with us.
Thanks for reading. Love and peace.
