  • Descripción


    I am about 50, lived many years abroad and used to live with younger people in communities. I studied History and 3-dimensional Design ( Product - design/ polytechnico before). Now, back in Germany I got 2 houses and gardens, which need renovation and maintenance.
    I like hiking, surfing, biking, dancing, travelling, nature adventures, reading, various kind of music, design and history and I am curios to learn more and make new experiences. Sometimes I do a charity stand to collect money for animal care organisations and animal shelters.

    I am host since 2017 and I always had a good experience with workaway/ers.

    Its the village of "Little-Red- Ridinghood", the country of the German Fairy tales (written by Brothers Grimm). The next big city is Kassel, where the largest international art fair, the DOCUMENTA takes place. Kassel has various parcs and in parc Wilhelmshöhe, which is Unesco heritage. As well Kasssel offers various museúms and festivals. Due to my studies and living abroad ca. 20 years I can tell you lots about culture and history...if you are interested;-)

    The same distance south is Marburg, one of the oldest German University Towns, with a lovely old town on the hill, where lots of students live.

    There are several supermarkets and one charitystore (clothes), some restaurants (italian,turkish, chinese, thai, german) close to the house.

    I got two houses to take care of. One is a modern bungalow, which needs gardening.
    The other one is an 200 year old typical German Fachwerkhouse, which needs renovation and full gardening as it will be transformed into a biological garden/ eco project. Its about 16 km distance between both of them.

    There is various stuff to do and usually we talk about the tasks before. In general any task is a job, which I assume, can be done in 4 hours -due to my own experience. We will talk about it before, as I always try to hand out a work, which suits your skills. You should be able to work autonomous.

    Some of the work is in the old house ( usually in the afternoon) and some at the new house.

    Range of possible tasks: clearance of some parts of the garden, cutting bushes, planting, lay a new footpath, various constructions with palettes, cutting wood with a saw/axe, repairing bycicles, sewing. Indoor renovation: f.ex.plastering and painting, some construction works.

  • Alojamiento


    At the moment the accomodation is in the new house, where I have several rooms. You will have your own room and a shared bathroom. There are several supermarkets close by and a charity shop in my street. Usually I provide breakfast and dinner and during the day sandwishes or cookies (often homemade). In summer we eat outside on the terrace mostly and often make bbq at the fireplace. Just let me know in advance, if you do not eat certain food. Eating time is flexible.

    Sometimes there are more than one or two workaways here ( got 4 sleeping rooms+) so its also a place, where you may meet other workaways from all over the world. If you are a more introverted person, you are welcome, too. The house is huge and you have enough space to be by yourself and work by yourself.

    Algo más...

    The villages are in the center of Germany, all trains north-south stop here and stops of Flixbus are closeby. As my village is central, there are also options to get her by Blablacar. Some workaways took advantage of its central location and popped in a few times.
    I got several bicycles and there are many biketrails close to my new house and hiking trails close to the old house in the Kellerwald.

    There is also a a little airport for gliders close to the house, s.t. they take someone for free. There are lakes for swimming and rivers for SUP and canoeing around..... in summer :-)
