  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 2.5 & nearly 3.5 years) living in the countryside in a rural location. My husband works on the farm while I'm a part time housewife. Our door is always open to guests. Our kids love meeting new people and love to dance to music and more recently, love to hear a story from one of our storybooks.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will fully integrate into how we live our day to day life & perhaps try foods you haven't had before. We of course would like to try some dishes from your region.

    Ideally, we would love a volunteer who is hands on.

    If you are looking to improve your english, our home is the place to be as we are currently teaching our two little children, the basics of english.

    Hi, Thank you for opening this page! :) We are a lovely happy family of 4 on a farm in the countryside. We would welcome someone who doesn't mind painting. There will be great meals guaranteed for helping us. :)

    From September on:
    We have some gates outside that we'd like some help painting. (Weather permitting)
    We'd also love to have some help taking wallpaper down in 1 of our rooms in our home.
