  • Description


    Hey hey, what's up? We're a small family with 2 small kids, 8 chickens and a cat. We're looking for help around the yard and house and childcare.
    We speak German and English at home, so you would get the chance to practice both. Also we speak Portuguese and Spanish, if that would be of any help.
    We've got a few projects going, mainly a small oil mill and movement centered learning.
    Around the house there is always something to get creative with, from lamp shades to old furniture to... You invent it 😄
    So if you're into moving and awareness, neuroplasticity nerdy talk, gardening and rediscovering old plants, transparent and regenerative ways of busy being, we'll have lots to do together.
    One of the children is in daycare until 2 pm. The other one is small and at home. I need help with meals and some chores and childcare while I'm working. That will be half days.

    We can talk about routines etc. in personal messages.

    A longer term stay would be very welcomed if we're a good fit. Frankfurt is close with stuff to do. Around here there is forest and fields but also an art house cinema a few musicians and generally nice people. I'd love to enable a Greta stay for someone, so if you'd like your time to be accompanied by a language course, I would offer that.

    Also a public transport ticket and internet are included. I would need a 30 hour week and will offer 300 euros. Any extra time will be paid per hour.

    You can smoke outside in the yard (with a comfy sofa under you).
