  • Description


    Hey, we are a little patchwork family living in Berlin on the outskirts. We are couple, a teenager (13) plus we just adopted a doggie from the animal shelter. Sometimes some other members of our extended family hang out here too. We live quite central but in a quiet area with garden ... close to forest and also not far away from a big lake (Müggelsee).

    We live eco conscious (e.g. most from our food comes from a small organic farm outside Berlin, we have a wurm compost and so on) and as climate friendly as possible but we are not perfect for sure.

    We eat vegetarian-vegan – and LOVE good food! :)

    You will stay with our family and we can also do some trips together (trips in the forest with the dog and so on). We have quite a lot of space and its a nice combination of getting to know Berlin while at the same time being surrounded by nature.

    As well if you want we can try to establish together a yoga/fitness/meditation routine :)

  • Help


    We are looking for somebody helping us with our garden. We just moved here a couple of months ago and want to grow veggies and fruits, using permaculture design if possible. But as I used to live in Spain, I do not know a lot about German plants yet.

    As well some help in the house would be great (cleaning, going shopping and so on) and maybe supporting us with the doggie if you feel comfortable doing that. So far his life was quite hard and he is a bit traumatized, so he is still quite nervous and insecure, and sometimes it is a bit challenging with him (especially outside on the leash). But we are working already intensively with a dog trainer :)

    By the way we might look for some house sitting while traveling ourselves in the future, so this could be an option for the future as well if we get along.

    If you are interested please let us know what kind of experience you have regarding gardening and with dogs. Thanks much!

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own room downstairs (around 16qm). Directly next to it is a toilet that you can mainly use for yourself (nobody else is living on this floor). In general the house is quite big and spacious, so its possible to have your own space whenever you need it :)

    IMPORTANT: The epidemic sucks but we try to behave responsible and take it quite seriously (also to protect risk groups) – we are looking for somebody with a similar approach.
