My family and I together with a board of trustees run a foundation focusing on arts and theatre of the early 20th century in northern Germany. My wife and I have two girls of ten and seven years and a Boy of five years. We live in the main house and the premises include a 20 acre park with a listed mansion of around 40 rooms as well as two other Buildings rented out. There is a horse-steeple for 65 horses on the foundations ground as well. As we all work for the foundation as volunteers and have "regular" Jobs on top of that, help of all sorts is always more than welcome.
The foundation is beautifully situated on the outskirts of Bremen and is quite unique in it's preservation of the art and society of the early 20th century.
We can offer an insight in the culture and art communities in northern Germany during the Jugendstil-Era. with various events, and a unique setting there is a broad range of experiences which we can share.
All of this requires all sorts of gardening, building, mending, fixing and improvising at all times. We also host 8-10 cultural events every year. Here also a variety of skills and errands come in veray helpful. We are looking for an Allrounder with interest in gardening, Building and culture.
