Looking for garden enthusiasts to help with establishing differently themed gardens projects around our home in the beautiful seaside town of Port Lincoln, South Australia.
We are happy to support you in improving your English if English is not your mother tongue. Apart from speaking English, Uta and Damien are fluent in German, Uta also speaks French, some Italian and Spanish. We have lived overseas for many years and have an open mind about visitors from other cultures.
Port Lincoln is great for exploring nature boasting a national park, marine parks, beaches, native bush, fishing and shark cage diving if you have some dollars saved.
We are empty nesters ready for some changes! Damien (architect) and Uta (landscape designer to be) have planned a number of garden projects to be realised around our family home in the middle of Port Lincoln, South Australia. The projects involve removing existing vegetation, moving mulch and soil, planting, raking, sanding a deck, oiling garden furniture, paint jobs and other maintenance as it arises.
If you are interested in building we also have a little renovation project on the drawing desk.
Uta runs a serious vegetable garden which might need tweaking here and there.
We are environmentally minded and try to make sustainable choices in whatever we do.
We welcome helpers interested in preparing meals and cooking. If you are more the home type and enjoy housework there is also plenty of work to keep you busy.
Depending on your preference you can either sleep in large room downstairs or in a guest room with a double bed upstairs. You would share the bathroom with your hosts.
We live in walking distance to the centre of Port Lincoln. You are also welcome to borrow a men's bicycle. There is no public transport to other towns which means if you want to explore the outside of Port Lincoln you might want to hire a car.
