  • Description

    Description

    Are you experienced either in gardening or cooking meals independently and would like to visit Switzerland and our family? We are a family of six (38, 37, 11, 8, 3.5 and 1.5) who live simple and uncomplicated in a house in the countryside. We also have an old gentle German Shepherd (12). We are not vegetarians, but we eat meat extremely rare. When we buy food usually look after seasonal, organic and environmental sustainability is generally quite important to us in all concerns. We are a homeschooling/unschooling family, that means our kids are around during the day. We are looking for people who like to speak and play with our kids in English or French for them to practice foreign languages.

    We live pretty close to Bern, the capital City and Thun (Berner Oberland -> where are a lot of famous mountains and sightseeing places). The next train station is around 500m to our house.

    Help

    Your main task will either be:
    - cooking one meal per day, cleaning up the kitchen after meals and spending time with our children (playing, reading, going out for a walk with them...)
    or:
    - gardening, weeding and being creative in our backyard. Some months ago we moved here and there is a lot to do around the house, as you can see on some pictures. If you are experienced in gardening, you can feel free, removing weeds, planting new plants and being creative to help us make a nice place out of our surroundings.

    We expect, that you are experienced in either the one or the other, and also like children.

    Accommodation

    You will be accommodated in a room in our flat, that is a playroom actually. After dinner and during the nights it will be yours alone of course. We are also welcoming workawayers with kids. If so, we could accommodate you in our tiny holiday flat in the same house if it is available for the requested time.
