We'd really like a helper from the 15th of October for at least 3 weeks. Who'll come and join us?
We're looking someone to help with the picking, gathering of different fruits, herbs and vegetables from our garden. Also to help with the conserves. This is from July till October. Who'd like to give us a hand?
Who's available and would like to enjoy the mountains? We always need help in our gardens & vineyards and general housekeeping. If you're willing to help us 5 days a week, 5 hrs a day, for at least 4 weeks, then get in touch with us.
We're a family with 5 kids (all grown up) and 8 grandkids. We're in the Swiss Alps, just above the Rhone river and partner of the Pfyn-Finges Regional Nature Park. Close to the ski slopes, hiking, in the middle of the vineyards. Our village is a winemaking village. Some of the best Pinot Noir in the world.
We're a large family and are trying to be self-sustainable. We like to share our way of life and to learn from others about their life. We try hard to live off what we have and grow ourselves or find growing wild in the area. We produce our own electricity, the water gets warmed by the sun, and we use our resources wisely. We're working towards zero waste.
In the home you'll be helping with keeping the living areas of the workawayers and family in order, clean and proper. Those who are interested can help with the meal preparation.
We have vineyards, large gardens, and a large house to take care of.
We speak German and English fluently. Just a little Italian and French. German (dialect) is our main language.
We're looking forward to getting to know lots of people.
