    Description

    We are a trilingual couple (English, German, Hungarian) and live about 40 minutes from Bremen and an hour and a half from the Dutch border.

    Help includes gardening, helping with simple creative crafts and possibly cooking. There are geese, cats and chickens that need to be looked after. You will become part of our family environment in Ammerland (Northern Germany) and can enjoy the rural idyll while helping us with various activities.

    Wir sind ein dreisprachiges Ehepaar (Englisch, Deutsch, Ungarisch) und wohnen etwa 40 Minuten von Bremen und anderthalb Stunden von der niederländischen Grenze entfernt.

    Die Aufgaben umfassen Gartenarbeit, Hilfe beim einfachen kreativen Handarbeiten und möglicherweise auch Kochen. Es gibt Gänse, Katzen und Hühner, die versorgt werden müssen. Du wirst Teil unseres familiären Umfelds im Ammerland (Norddeutschland), und kannst die ländliche Idylle genießen, während du uns bei verschiedenen Tätigkeiten hilfst.

    We're happy if you like cats and aren't afraid of geese. There is always a lot to do in our garden (8000 m²). It would be great if someone could help, especially with weeding, watering, pruning, painting benches and mucking out the animals.

    Wir freuen uns, wenn du Katzen magst und keine Angst vor Gänsen hast. In unserem Garten (8000 m²) gibt es immer viel zu tun. Es wäre toll, wenn jemand helfen könnte, vor allem beim Unkrautziehen, Gießen, Zurückschneiden, Bänke streichen und beim Ausmisten der Tiere.
