  • Description


    * I am looking for a creative, friendly, handy person who can help with wood and little construction work for our current projects:

    -building a wooden outdoor shower
    - making a pizza oven from clay
    - repairing a shed roof
    - building a garden gate with concrete base for the slide
    - little repairings in general.... there is always something to do ;)

    - gardening: cleaning out and growing veggies, putting water system

    - help with graphic design projects - Adobe CC skills to teach me

    Would be great if you are able to work in a team and also independently. If you are interested to join us, send me a line! :)

    we are vegetarians/vegans and do not cook any meat in our house, just to let you know :)
    I will provide food.
    you will have a simple bed in my atelier/garage and we will share bathroom and kitchen.

    Most time of the day we are outside enjoying the garden, the stunning natureside around or the beautiful wild beaches that are only 10 mins by car. In your freetime you can go surfing or do other watersports or hiking, cycling... exploring the island.
    since we are locatetd a bit outside (2km from next village), I recommend to rent a car or a bike, but its also possible to walk 20 mins to the next bus station. and ofc when I have time I`ll give you a lift.

    In case you are traveling with your camper-van you can put it in the garden.
