    Description

    We are a young couple (both 27) living in beautiful eastfrisia. The eastfrisian islands are 30 km away and in summer definitely worth a trip . We bought an old farm house and are now starting to renovate. We are living here with Monty, our crazy dog and 3 chicken. Task are usually gardening, renovating , ... for 4-5 hours a day. It always depends on what you like:-) As Leon and me are working during week (I have flexible working hours, so am often there..), it may happen that you have to work on your own. Or you can work in the evening time together with us. Or you take days during the week off and help us more on busy weekends. We are very flexible, so it depends on what you like :-)


    We provide bikes and the next bus stop is not far away. We could also give you a lift as we drive quite often to aurich (8kms away). A good englisch is a must for understanding tasks and good conversations. In 2015 we did one year of traveling through New Zealand and Thailand and have done lot of helpx (workaway) experiences. Please know that we are not offering long term stays and employment. We would love to find somebody social who would like to learn about our culture and maybe wants to go out for a beer or two.
    Looking forward to hear from you!
