  • Description


    We are a family of three and a pussy cat. My husband is an art painter, I am a passionate gardener and our son (19) is going to school.
    We live in a large house with a big garden. It`s naturally renovated with a lot of wood, so we have a cosy living athmosphere.
    I am looking for general help, especially in the garden. It`s seasonal work, including planting, weeding watering and harvesting.
    We are open minded, positive thinking and we live the philosophy of Waldorf, which means we take care of nature and all beings.
    We live close to the lake of Constance with possibilities to bike, hike and swim.. We`re close to public transportation, so you can visit many beautiful places in Switzerland or Germany.

    We have a big vedgie garden. Every year it became bigger. But we got older and now we need help to take care of it. The garden is very beautiful, because I like gardening a lot. I also love flowers, they are beautiful but also important for the bees and butterflies. To make a garden means to make the world more beautiful. So that`s how I see it.
    I would like to have some flat spots to sit in the shade. This could be a project to be realized with you.
    I need help keeping the house clean. If you like you can also help out with cooking. I am vegetarian but the rest of the family sometimes eat meat.
    Some spots in the house really need a new look. It would be nice if you could help me with that.
    In winter we heat the house with wood. So this is also work we appreciate your help.
    We have various other jobs in and around the house.

    I am looking for a positive thinking, energetic and self motivated person, who likes to work alone or in a team.

  • Accommodation


    We live in a big house and you have your own room. We have to share the bathroom and toilet. But there is always enough room in or around the house to do what you like.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in northern Switzerland close to Germany and near the famous little old town Stein am Rhein. It`s a very nice region to explore. If you are interested in birdwatching this might be the place for you.
    Maybe you enjoy to be around the house or in the garden, maybe you like to find a quiet spot to read or paint or you like to sew or make things with coloured wool. We also have a room to work with wood that you can use. So after work it`s possible for you to be all creative.
    I am interested to host you for a short or long term.
