  • Description


    at present we need 1 person

    Hello, our names are Bernd (60) and Karin (61). We are garden and nature lovers and run a large flower garden with thousands of flowers . I love flowers! We are looking for some help in our garden , especially from 8.7. to 14.7 or a little longer. The main thing is weeding und cutting faded flowers (appr. 3-4 hours a day.)

    You will love our garden, we live in a “paradise”. We have been in television and in several garden magazines. Our place is very peacefull.

    We speak German and English. Our English isn´t excellent but we can communicate ,-) and if you are a native speaker, we would be glad to learn from you. We are friendly, quiet people who love living on the countryside and enjoy nature. We have 2 sheeps and when the barn is ready chicken can come!
    Bernd is very good cook (by the way - we eat meat) and you will enjoy his meals.

    We have a beautiful landscape (Sauerland/border Bergisches Land) with forests and several dams and creeks as well as gentle hills and green meadows.We live in a rural area with 7 houses, the small town (17ooo inhabitans) with some supermarkets is 25 minutes away on foot. You can use our ebike or investigate the landscape by hiking or you can chill in the beautiful garden. We can have barbecues and bonfires now and than. Maybe you like going into the sauna – we have one in our garden! If you like to go canoeing this will be a good chance to do it together with Bernd. Visit Cologne which is 60 km away and DÜSSELDORF which is 67 km away. Next railway station is about 30 km from our house, we would transfer you occasionally.

    We can have breakfast together, we will have lunch together but pls help yourself at the evening. We will provide you with food.

    If our holiday flat is free we invite you to live there during your stay. It is a large nice flat with television and WIFI.

    We especially are looking for some help from 8.7 to 14.7 or a little longer.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can teach you something about gardening with flowers and garden design. I know a lot of perennials and their demand and you could learn how to create beautiful pictures with flowers in the garden. In the last 20 years we have collected a great number of various flowers.

    You belong to the family and will meet our relatives and friends. Improve your German and enjoy friendly hospitality. We like to have contact to different cultures, nationalities and mentalities through volunteers.

    Bernd is a carpenter and can teach you skilled craftmanship. He will be pleased to work together with you.
