  • Description

    Description

    We are a big family with five children (four at home) between 10-18 years old, living on a small farm with some animals that we rescued. Now we are looking for someone who can be a part of us and our daily life. Someone who can be an extra hand and help with both animals, children and home (cleaning, cooking, washing, homework, animal-feeding, gardening, playing with the kids, drive the kids to school and home if needed).
    We just spend the summer moving to our own new farm so we are still building, fixing and planing the gardening and life here. Our plan is to build a big kitchen garden. To grow as mutch of our food as possible. Hope you want to be a part of this project!!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn about Swedish life and language. We live close to fine nature where you can take nice walks and relax. The surroundings are beautiful.
    You will get to experience the food that exists in Sweden. Both food from Sweden and our neighbors Denmark and Norway. You will be able to experience the Swedish traditions. And you will also be able to see the Swedish education system when helping our children and following them to school.
    You will probably not only see the northwestern part of southern Sweden but many more places in Sweden and even Denmark because you will be able to come along on our family trips that we do from time to time. And do not worry about knowing the language when coming here, everybody knows or learns English in school here. But we will of course want to help you learn Swedish if that is something that you would like. Everywhere in southern Sweden is pretty much accessible by bike or buss, some parts by train. If you are up for some exploring.

    We wish to get help in the house with normal chores like washing, cleaning and cooking. As well as Childcare, gardening and even animal care. We are looking for a female workawayer who can take the initiative and responsibility regarding both the home and children. Reduce the stress of daily life by doing chores for us, like having dinner ready when we get home from work. Having washed and sorted the laundry, vacuumed and wiped the floor when needed. We wish for someone who gets great joy from children and animals because that is a must when we have over 30 animals and 5 children.
    We would also like that you like movies, playing with the children, reading stories, feeding the animals, talk and play with the parrot, walking the dogs and maybe even take care of the garden and the many plants in the greenhouse.
