    Description

    You look for work on a little family farm, with gardening, house work and building? You like wild and free kids around, and you are REALLY motivated, independent, peaceful and positive? Maybe you are also passionate about downhill mountainbiking on top?

    PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY AND ONLY RESPOND IF YOU REALLY FEEL THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT:-)

    We are a German family of 4 living on a old little farm in nature on the beautiful island of Bornholm. Bornholm is a Danish island in the Baltic Sea, beautiful located between Sweden, Denmark and Germany.

    Our family is into freelearning, so our kids (11 and 6) are always around.
    We recently bought the farm and with this wanna focus on a even more sustainable life.
    We are into gardening, building, books, nature, music (our daughter enjoys the guitar, singing and the piano) , outdoors, sports, singing, yoga, healthy and unhealthy;-) foods ... - we are striving for a colorful, joyful and peaceful life❣️🐝

    We are vegans and vegetarians and do not smoke. So if you want to live on our ground, you should be aware that we wont feel good with meat and smoking around.

    Peaceful and respektful relations, being non-judgemental, especially with treating our kids, and finding joy in every day life is super important to us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a German family on a danish island. Before we moved here, we lived in Sweden and traveled many countries. We are into free learning, and in combination with our beautiful island I truly think that we all have so much to give to each other.
    As we are into homeschooling/free learning and attachment parenting, we can also inspire with this lifestyle, and of course living a life in nature.
    Conrad is a autodidact craftsman and can teach how to fix and build everything from tools, electricity, furniture, fences, painting, houses... So lots to inspire 🌿☀️💙

  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for you, who REALLY likes to work with hands and being physically active❤️
    4 to 5 hours on the weekdays we need you to do mostly outside work on our farm (you shouldnt be afraid to melt in rain:-)) and to keep the household running (cleaning, maybe cooking, baking etc),
    help with the huuuge garden (experiences with gardening are a huge plus), build/rebuild sth in the house (painting, replacing the floor, electricity etc) or in the older outer buildings (taking down the roof, walls etc).
    We have some sheeps (friends, not food!!), and so you might can help with setting up new fences or renovating the stable.
    IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU ARE REALLY MOTIVATED TO WORK PHYSICALLY OUTDOORS!

    Our son loves mountainbiking, especially downhill. So if you could teach him some new tricks and skills, he will never let you go again 😉
    Same for passionate soccer players, music makers, artists of all kinds ❤️

    !!! It is essential and most important that YOU take initiative and responsibility by yourself if you want to bond with our kids!!!!

    We will never get out of projects and as they are manifold we can try to find something you enjoy, or at least try to find a good balance! You are welcome as you are and to share your passion and inspire us with what your heart beats for.
    It is very important that you can work independently from us and best already have some experiences in gardening (f. E. cutting trees and bushes etc) and building.

    We also wanna learn more danish, so if you are a native danish speaker we would love that! For our kids it’s very important that you can communicate also with them, therefore we look for someone who speaks danish, German, English or Swedish.
    We will try to communicate the projects for the next day(s) in advance (if possible), so that you are able to plan your days as well.

    Accommodation

    We live on our newly bought old farm in the middle of nature.
    You will have the pleasure to life in our beloved caravan just directly in nature on our land. So you will have your own little paradise with a bedroom, a toilet and kitchen. 💙 You will have an outdoor shower build in nature just for you, but you are welcome to use the warm shower in the house. Please let us know before, as we also have some rhythms and a need for privacy.

    Please be aware that in general you have to take care of your own meals, but we can imagine to have a common meal maybe every once in a while if you feel like that, too. Mostly meal time means family time for us;-)

    Smoking, drugs or getting drunk on our property are strictly forbidden.

    We are more introvert and will most of the time just life our daily life on our own, but also love to learn and explore more about this beautiful life together with other souls once in a while when we all feel like 🌈

    So there will be lots of time and space for you to have on your own, to relax, explore our colorful island on your own or else.
    So summing up, we are able to offer you:
    + lovely space to stay,
    + tasks for you to work independently on 4-5 hours a day.

    We will not be able to life like roommates or cooperative style, as we need family time and privacy, as well. So if you look for community living and wanna spend lots of time together, we probably won't be a match.
    If you like meaningful, physical work and being social maybe once in a while, but also appreciate time and space for your own - that's us💞 We take it wordwise, here you can experience WORK with being AWAY, we offer accommodation with your help , and maybe it will come that we all (including you) feel like spending extra time, maybe not due to different reasons (life! 😉🌈). We just find it important to be clear on this, it all comes from love.

    Please be aware of the energy you will bring on our ground, and so will we.
    Only write to us if you feel that you are really committed to contribute with 4-5 working hours daily and don't see it as a burden, but as a chance to gain experience and to spend a meaningful time. We look for those who are interested in a fair deal: working properly within the agreed hours, and get accomodation in exchange. If we feel that we arent matching we honestly and peaceful talk to you, and of course you please feel free to do the same.

    You are welcome to use our bikes and the bus stop is in walking distance.
    The ocean is just 4km away, as it is to the next smaller shop.

    If you like the ocean, beaches, rocks, nature, arts and pittoresque little cities, then Bornholm is perfect for you. If you like to contribute with meaningful work, being mindful, positive and aware about the energy you will bring into our house, then we might be a good match for you. If you like gardening, love being a creative craftsman/woman, are motivated to do things and just to bring joy and heart in - we would love to meet you💙

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are a million things to do enjoy here! Cute little cities like Allinge, Gudhjem and Svaneke. You can go rock climbing, wandering through the woods, cycling, kayaking, surfing...
    Seeing historical places like the old castle of Hammershus or the middle-aged center...
    Also a lot of alternative people settled on the island to share their passion about eco villages, pottery, drawing, yoga...
    All our friends host workaways all the time, so if you would like to meet up with others, we can happily connect you💞
