You can learn from us how to live without chemistry in everyday life. From washing your hair only with water to homemade deodorant about natural prevention, natural menstruation, healthy food. How you stay healty, how do make the things we produce, learn about gardening- permaculture, make some bread. And how children can be accompanied appreciatively. Learn german and about our little village. You only have to ask. :-)
Curenntly we need help from march 2021 on. We are looking for womans who speaks very good English. Your daily tasks would be to keep the kitchen and the floor clean. vacuume cleaning, mucking out, collect some eggs if you arent scared about the chicken, plant some plants, watering young plants, washing bottles, getting the milk feed for the cows, sometimes washing the milk tank,
We usually have a lot of varied work. Sometimes you also can help in our free learning group for children. If you want this.
You can choose for yourself, if you want to work 3-4 hours every day or 5 hours 5 days a week, (25 hours a week) if you do the most of the work in the morning or in the afternoon... we alwas talk before what is to do next.
i am a very appreciative person and am grateful for every helping hand.
We expect honesty, kindness, naturally and helpfulness.
You would sleep in a small room. If you want, you can sleep in the hay. You are welcome to eat in our kitchen and spent time with us. But you also have a communal kitchen from the guests if you need more privacy. Our fridge is your fridge. We usually have lunch arround 1. and everybody eats dinner when they're hungry.
We have free wifi, a covered outdoor pool where you can swim mostly from april to october and we live on a little hill where you can skiing in winter. And we have many animals to cuddle. Well trained dogs are welcome.
I can pick you up from the Busstation "Busbahnhof" in 3264 Gresten, Niederösterreich, or my boyfriend arround 16:15 after his work during the week, in Amstetten Niederösterreich at the trainstation, .
Bus station and shops are a 30 min walk from us.
From experience i only mention briefly that this is also about voluntary work and not holidays. So please only report people who really want to help and are motivated! and we are at least almost always four of us sitting at the table, please respect if i also want to talk to my children. You can also talk to them, they are also there and are happy about exchange, dont ignore them! If we are cooking and doing the dishes all together, it doesn't count as working hours.
And if you break something, you have to work it off.
What we can't do is take you sightseeing with us all the time. Because we love it to relax at home and calm down from the working week.
You can borrow the bike or take the bus and have a look at all our wonderful places all around, by yourself. Ruin reinsberg, very beautyful river, wonderful nature wherever you go.
I'am looking forward to you. :-)
