  • Description


    Looking for some helping hands in September and October 2019 ! :)

    Hey workawayers!
    It's happening now - a workawayer grows some roots in the soil :D
    my name is Franka and I'm 23 years old - I was sowed and grew up at a gardencentre located in a small village in the eastern Germany. It's kind of a family project - so we are working all together but also with the people around.

    After a year of travelling around Europe I decided to help my dad in his gardenplace and I also want and need to build a roof above my head. And after all the great experiences I could make with workaway I am dreaming of sharing my own place with you!

    But there is some stuff to do :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our area is close to Berlin (it doesn't even take you one hour to get there)!
    And still it's on the countryside - sometimes it feels like the middle of nowhere but actually its not true - there are busses that can take you into 4 different towns and with the bike you have a lot opportunities to come around.
    In addition you can dive in the very east side living of Germany and so you are sourrounded by a beautiful nature area.
    I like to do things in the outside - so you shouldn't be afraid of bikes, walking and just spending time with other people. Also my hometown is known for it's sustainable lifestyle (especially the students here) - and so I am.

    ! We live 10 minutes away from a lake and the area is surrounded by so much water. In your free time you can go swimming, snorkeling, SUP... !
