  • Description


    Hi, my name is Heike.
    on my farmyard are living 2 women and me, we are between 40 and 55 years old. And Annie, my old dog and 2 cats.

    My farm is located in the conservation area from Gieselau-valley in Dithmarschen / Schlewig- Holstein.

    This is in the north of Germany - next to the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal - surrounded by natural reserves and not far away from the North Sea.
    And if you saw enough from the countryside, Hamburg is just 90 km away and reachable by public transportation.

    The exchange we offer is very diverse, because we always have different projects running.
    For example: garding in a greenhouse or outside, makeing firewood, removing the circus wagon, completion of a mini roof-only house, painting and repairing various things around and inside the house, making an outside bathing place, looking at the dog an cats, housesitting in the winter...
    .... be creative ... maybe making mosaic, building beautiful outside place to relax, cooking tasty meals...

    You have the opportunity to learn to juggle, spit fire... dance on the slackline ...

    We are exited to meet nice people from all over the world and maybe make some new friends.
