    We live on a 2 hectare property with the young Angas River running through. We have organic gardens with fruit trees, all sorts of berries, vegetable gardens with free roaming bantams, big layer hens, a Muscovy duck, flower beds, lawns as well as two goats on paddocks and a cute house cat.

    1 of our 4 kids Katharina is still living with us.

    Bernward runs a sustainable architecture and building consultancy business from offices attached to the home. Barbara works at the local hospital.

    We have been accommodating helpers for more than 7 years through various help exchange sites.

    If you want a break from travelling in a family environment and you are open and self-motivated, this is the place for you.
    This is not an action or party place but rather a place to relax and get creative with great light, & scenery for painting and photography, write and get back to nature.

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering.

    We appreciate help, enjoy young people and having an excuse to visit the beautiful and interesting places Adelaide, the hills and the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia have to offer with them.

    Due to the corona virus all our booked overseas helpers had to cancel their flight to Australia however, initially the places have been filled very fast with Virus refugees already in Australia. Now not many backpackers are now left in the country and the state border restrictions make it difficult to move. The first time in Years we might at times be without helpers at all. Some local Australian helpers, unable to go overseas are now filling the gap which is very nice as we used to have overseas helpers only before.

    Please read through all the text below and only apply if you think this is for you. Ask us early as we have many requests and are not always but often booked quite a bit in advance.

    There is always help needed in garden and paddock: pampering the goats, looking after animals, weed control, planting, picking vegetables, berries, plums, apples and more in season, lawn mowing, making firewood, compost, clean up sheds and help in and around the house.

    4 -5 hours easy help plus support in house & kitchen is expected.

    No smokers & no highly perfumed body products please. Reasonable English or German speaking / understanding is expected to enable meaningful conversations.

    We prefer longer stays (3 weeks min or more) after an initial "get to know" of a few days. Many helpers stay longer than planned and come back as they like the chance to relax and join a supporting family.

    Try to ask us early as we are often booked out for month..

    Sorry we cannot sign for 2.Visa

    Enjoy your adventure and many great hosts on the way!

    We live 45 min by car from Adelaide in the Adelaide Hills, 45 min from safe swimming beaches and 45 minutes from the surf beach . We think that is pretty central…. We do regular trips to the surrounding beaches and national parks with our helpers. Adelaide is easily accessible via bus.
