    Description

    We are a family of three women (57, 24 and 15) and my handicapped Brother (68) living in the countryside near Berlin. I work as a freelance architect at home and in Berlin. We live Vegan. :)
    We have a large garden with appletrees and vegetables and a small forest. The most important information is that we are running a vegan sanctuary here.
    We are living with incredible, wonderful, lovely animals.
    Except the two lambs all animals are rescued from the slaughter. The dogs we rescued from Romania and Sardegna.
    Beside the dogs we are a home for 21 sheep, 3 guineafouls, 16 chickens, 2 pheasants , 3 guinea pigs,3 rabbits and two boars living in the forest .
    Our Young sheep Penelope is often in the house because she is a bottlelamb.
    You should also be ready for chickens that are visiting our dinertable as they are curious.
    In general You should not be bothered by dirty farmwork and cleaning .
    It would be nice if You are a person who likes animals and who is looking for the work instead of running from it .
    In exchange the animals will love You and come running to You every day.
    My brother is a lovely person, but mentally disabled so You should have at least some kind of tolerance and patience towards disabled people. He does nt speak English but he enjoys boardgames and loves his bike.

    We are looking for people who are responsible workers and have empathy for animals.
    Please don't apply here if you don't like animal work or if your intention is just to make vacations for free!!

    You should be a person who is organized and able to overlook the work by yourself. You have to work self responsible and practical skills would be very helpful here. It doesn't matter if you work with animals the first time if you really enjoy to take care of them.

    The chickens for example need a hugh from time to time. :) <3
    There is always some work in the garden to do, especially to take care of the chickens and sheeps, to clean the stables, to plant vegetables, fruits etc., to build a fence and so one. But the main task is to feed the animals 3 times a day.
    Also we need a hand in the house, helping us to cook delicious vegan food, cleaning the floor and washing the dishes for example.
    If You have any building skills Your help is more than welcome here because our house is still in process.
    All these little but important tasks are easily done in five hours. It only depends on how organized and quick you are ;)
    You will still have a lot of spare time to visit Berlin and You have a good connection by train to be there in about 30 minutes.
