  • Description


    Come to East Germany (near Löbau) - for few days or longer!

    Our place is quite remote - we enjoy it because of its village character and silence.
    I lived in different kind of communitys and have been a volunteer as well. Now I am happy do be a host and welcome people from around the world.

    We need help with transforming:
    a) our small house
    b) the garden

    Come and help:
    a) Indoors:
    - painting walls
    - putting wallpaper off
    - Cleansing and renovating attic
    - putting wood at the floor

    b) Outdoors:
    - destroy an old garage in the garden to create an open air sitting area instead
    - creating and caring for a small garden with herbs, veggies and fruits
    - create relaxing area with a table and outdoor shower

    As I am quite busy with my job, I would be happy to meet new people who are willing to support me and bring their ideas in! I am vegetarian and try to live happy&healthy.
    I have a small dog which will be happy to see you as well.
    I encourage you to do some sightseeing in your free time and visit for example Görlitz (picturesque city known for the movie "The Grand Budapest Hotel" from Wes Anderson), or Bautzen.

    You will have to be quite self-sufficient. You can come alone or with a friend.
    You will help about 4h a day and will have to prepare your dishes alone.
