  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four, Anne, Thomas and the children Tilda (11) and Linus
    (8). We live in a house with a big garden close to potsdam with lots of
    lakes and forest around. Our village itself is not very interesting but Potsdam with its famous palaces and gardens is very close.

    This year we will refurbish one room of our house including clay plastering and a lot of wood painting needed. And you can learn more about ecological building. People with practical skills are more than welcome.

    Short term enquiries are welcome, as we do not plan too far. At the moment we can say that we will need help from the end of April/ beginning of May for around 2-3 weeks.

  • Help

    Help

    IN GENERAL: help with the daily chores, cooking, cleaning the table after eating should be self-evident. also it s very important that you are able to work independently. quite often we have several small jobs to be done around the house, therefore it s necessary that you will be able to do it alone after a short introduction.

    Teaching: If you play guitar or ukulele....we have some basic knowledge but would like to learn more.

    If you re good with IT things/ web design, we also have something for you to do.
