  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of five (kids are ten, six and three years old). We can describe ourselves as funny and lively. We are interested in people, nature and sports (basketball and circus performance). We like music and dancing (sometimes we dance spontaneously on the living-room carpet), cooking international food, environmental protection and gardening and trying out new recipes, also art, theater and yoga. Usually we are bursting with curiosity!
    Dina is working as a children development accompanist and as a circus trainer for children. So she is interested in acrobatics, balance-sports and art. Marcus works as a history and geography teacher. He loves music, conversation about culture, and to discover our big planet with all its phenomena.
    We would be glad to find someone, who enjoys preparing food and eating together and working together (while helping us a little) in the garden or dream and realize other creative ideas. Also helping an accompany us through family life would be great.
    Besides German, we speak English, Spanish, and a little Arabic, Hebrew and Japanese. We would like to learn some Italian, more Hebrew or Portuguese. We love languages!

    We would like to have help in winter and spring 2024. But we aren't certain yet - depends on our - yours and ours - chemistry and agreement. Also we can adjust our plans if you offer something. Basically we live a family life with children.

    In general we need some creative mind and hand in our garden, to change it into a little blooming paradise with a little bit of vegetable. People with skills in gardening and carpentry are very welcome! Also you should know how to act with kids.

    Spending time with us and the children will be useful for learning German. Also, there would be a lot of free time to fill with the nice and rich cultural offerings of Bremen.

    We have a very small garden. This wonderful piece of earth needs also some care, love and initiative to structure and create. Maybe installing a herb spiral or building playground items. We would love to learn something about permaculture techniques!
    We would like to have a helping hand in everyday life with kids and family. Especially preparing one warm meal for the day, maybe watch the kids from time to time or go to the playground.
    We try to realize little projects step by step: i.e. transforming our laundry room into a creative art space. Also arranging rooms is a thing we do and we need inspiration and ideas and of course carpentry skilled help.
