    Hey, my name is John (auf deutsch Johannes) and I live kind of isolated in a valley between the cities Schwäbisch Hall and Künzelsau, close to the Schloss Tierberb. I like to grow veggies, fruits and berries, but also collect them in the surrounding area as there are many abandond fruit and nut trees.
    When the weather is fine I go twice in the week with bike to the market to sell there flowers and food.

    I could need help in the garden, collecting and preparing the fruits or nuts for drying, making wood as I heat the water and the house with stoves.

    I try to change my vegan diat to raw food diat. Would be amazing if you would like to try it too, but you can always cook something vegan.

    If it matters, I'm gay friendly :-)

    I can teach you German and if you are interested in classical music I could show you how to play piano or cello. There's also a violin and a guitar in the house.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The house is located in a side valley of the Kocher Valley, between Schwäbisch Hall and Künzelsau surrounded by forest and a small stream, which is barely visible in summertime when there's too less rain.
    There is no cell phone reception (you have to walk a bit high) and no sounds of civilization, except the nurse of the only neighbor drives with the car for shopping.

    Das Haus liegt in einem Seitental vom Kochertal, zwischen Schwäbisch-Hall und Künzelsau unweit vom Schloss Tierberb, umgeben von Wald und einem kleinen Bach, der bei längerer Trockenheit kaum mehr zu sehen ist. Es gibt dort keinen Handyempfang ( dafür muss man etwas hoch laufen ) und keinerlei Geräusche der Zivilisation, außer der Pfleger des einzigen Nachbarns fährt mit dem Auto zum einkaufen.
