We are a young family 40, 37, 6 and 2.
We live in Bad Fischau, a lively village of 4000 inhabitants, south of Vienna. We live in a large house where we are hosting small events. Around the house is a large garden, that we want to bring more and more nature and live into.
We are currently trying to foster out connection to the nature around us and our neighborhood, creating a community of honest, authentic and loving people.
We love to bring the world home to us and our two kids.
we eat vegetarian (1); paleo (1) and a mixture (but preferably pizza and spaghetti - the two youngsters ;-)
We are about 10 minutes walk form the nearest train station. From there trains go to Vienna (Travel time approx. 40 minutes) Bad FIschau is a lovely old village, with a vibrant village life, with regular concerts, small bookshop, montessori kindergarten, natural caves and thermal springs. The woods start a few meters from our house, and mountains (2000m altitude) are 30 minutes by train.
We always look forward to people who help us. In particular, children loving people are welcome.
At the moment, we are looking for nice and open person for 2-4 weeks. We would mainly need help in the following: environmental and gardening, childcare, housework. People who can also work independently after an introduction.
