    Looking for some helping hands in March 2020 ! :)

    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... ! And I will definitly go into the lake even it is March haha!

    We work in a small gardencentre - and your chores are to water the plants, to care about them, to do some gardening and to cook meals for the lunchtime. Also there will be some rooms that need to get rid of some stuff and to be refreshed - a little spring clean!

    There are also rabbits around.

    You have the opportunity to sleep in a room but if there are any roofbuilders outside who can help us to fix the roof would be great!

    The food is mostly vegetarian.

    In our time here breakfast, lunch and dinner is included.
