  • Description


    We are a vegan family that is friendly, interested in other cultures, and quite active. Our hobbies are cycling (road bike), hiking, swimming, camping, visiting playgrounds, parks, and the woods. Most afternoons and on weekends we are out and about. You can be part of our family and join us. :-)
    We have three children: boy (7 years old, visiting first grade), boy (3 years old), baby girl (2 months old). The two little ones are foster children like adopted. They are nice, clever and very cute. We need some help looking after the children and doing light household chores related to the children, while Manuel (m, 32) is working 30 hours per week as an engineer and Julia (w, 28) is working 15+ hours per week for her eco-friendly eCommerce store that is selling cloth diapers and zero waste products. Maybe you would like to learn something about that, too? We both work in home-office.
    You can have fun with the children and help this eco-friendly online-project indirectly. You could live with us like a cousin and or an aunt, joining our everyday life, eating meals with us, go cycling or hiking with us. But of course, you can have your peace in your own room or explore beautiful Germany on your own in the afternoon or weekends.

  • Help


    We need some help with babysitting, so that we can work on our laptops and concentrate. During this time you can watch the children play, do some crafts, go for a walk to the playground or to the nearby creak. Feed the baby with her bottle and sometimes change diapers. We are never far away. Maybe you will sometimes find time to turn on the washing machine with children clothes or fold clothes together with the older ones? :D We would like you to be part of our family. So maybe you would like to give us a hand in the kitchen to prepare meals. No heavy household chores. Once a week a cleaner is coming.
