  • Description


    Help needed!
    We are a family with one teenager.

    We would welcome an easy going, friendly girl.
    You should like to bake, clean and cook as we will need your help in the kitchen and (more rarely) with our son and pets.
    Patience and good pedagogical skill is also good.

    We are looking for volunters in the spring. Preferably from February 1st, we provide with your own shared apartment and need you to self isolate for at least one week, but will provide some food etc during that time.
    Garden landscaping, building, pet care (we have a peacock, chicken, cat and ducks among other birds), help with children, light housework, cooking and general help.

    Also, light housework, food preparations and gardening.

    We are a small family and very accomodating for the right people.
    You need to be a social person, with good english skills, able to work independently where needed.
    We all help out with things like washing up, cleaning our own room and so on.

    We have lot´s of fun together and go for little outings together, when the weather and time allows it.
    Please send an email and introduce yourself.
    We can take 2 people at a time, shortest period of time is 2 weeks. 1 month or longer have an advantage.
    NO couples or friends accepted.
    Workaway is an experience, not a time to hang out with old friends, but to meet new ones.
    Due to some recent unfortunate incidents, only people genuinely interested in getting to know the swedish country side, learning skills and improving others need apply.

    We have a little indoor cat, so you must not be allergic.

    The husband in the family is a celebrated chef, so be prepared to eat really well.
