    Description

    [IMPORTANT: we are healthy and have no symptoms of any communicable illness whatsoever, for those concerned about such things. But we would also like to make it clear that we consider the government and media response - to what is at worst a bad flu - extremely troubling and possibly indicative of totalitarian power-creep]

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update April 16 th:

    spring is coming, the gardening season starts, Jan has been having a big building project during this winter (we need more space for the kids and therefore the attic needs a new floor as the first step) we would be happy to host someone with good DIY/building knowledge or a good allrounder who helps us with the kids, housekeeping, cooking, gardening and so on!

    AND:
    as thing have been really exhausting for us during the last months and school and kindergarden will be closed again now, we would like to take a time-out for 1 or 2 weeks and do a tour with our camper and caravan. So we need a volunteer (or 2) who will be ok with doing some housesitting while staying with us :-)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello there!

    We're Alex, Jan, Arthur, Alma and Auguste Heuer. We are in our beginning 40s, 8, 5 and 2,5. (our kids are born in 2013, 2016 and 2018).
    We live on our farm (4000m²) in Kirchenfeld/ Penkun, eastern Germany.

    We are married and have 3 kids: Arthur, Alma and baby Auguste.

    Our goal is to become (almost) self-sufficient minifarmers, we keep chickens (mainly for nostalgic reasons and eggs) and are growing vegetables. In the past we have had sheep, pigs, ducks and rabbits.

    We also have Lara, our dog and our three cats, Cleopatra, Pippilotta and Odin.

    We take responsibility for the world around us, so whatever we buy, we try to go for organic and fair trade products.

    We try to avoid plastic as far as possible and stay away from flavour enhancers, preservatives and a lot of other additives from modern chemistry. We shop local produce or swap it in our LETS (Local Exchange Trading Systems or Schemes) – and also use it as a source for social contacts.

    We don't have WiFi because we believe there's enough radiation around already. There are LAN-cables ready for your device and a internet-laptop in the kitchen for you to use.

    Since we have a little baby, we are pretty occupied, so we won't be around most of the evenings, that means, you have to be comfortable with aloneness.

    We realize, that we ask for a lot of commitment, but we all (kids and adults) need the consistency. We want you to benefit from your stay, so we happily pass on our knowledge and experiences. Give you room for your own experiments and won’t be breathing down your neck. We will try to contribute to a great experience on your part – please talk to us about your wishes and expectations.

    With three kids joyfully messing up the place on a daily basis , we need you to have an eye for(on) things that need to be done (cleaned, tidied up). (Autobiographical note: I (Jan) sometimes need a reminder, that I’m on team “tidying” - can’t have another one like me/this. Rest assured that I’m really trying ;-))




    We have three old but clean caravans. You also have a separate bathroom in one of the stables, so privacy is guaranteed.

    We always need your help minding the kids (not necessarily baby Auguste), with housekeeping and with gardening/farming, so you should be comfortable holding a child, a shovel, a broom etc. Above that you're welcome to contribute with any other skill that you have (DIY, fixing things etc.) (Optional: We might even ask you to housesit for a few days.)

    What is probably important for you as well: as we live out in the sticks, there are no shops or pubs around.
    The next town with 2000 inhabitants is 4 km away, there’s a drinks store, a tiny grocery store, a pharmacy, a flower shop, a bakery and a restaurant. That’s all :-P

    We order a lot of our groceries online, but we still need to go shopping physically to Prenzlau (25km) or Szczecin/Stettin (Poland; 30km). If you need anything you may of course join us or we pick something up for you.



    A little bit about ourselves:

    Alex comes from a little town near Stuttgart and I was raised near Hamburg.

    We met in Tromsø, Norway in 2006, where Alex studied biology and I (kind of) studied philosophy. We were brought together by our love for heavy metal music and have been together ever since.
    Alex went back to Tromsø twice to finish her diploma. The last time, I joined her and made our living by guiding tourists. Meanwhile I had grown tired of philosophy and canceled my studies. Nowadays I dabble with art. I’m currently trying to get enough sculptures ready to fill a room and call it “exhibition”

    After Alex got her degree, we moved (back) to Hamburg together. We soon grew tired of the hasty city-lifestyle and decided to move to the countryside. We found the place we are currently living in and fell in love with it at first sight. The house had not much but potential and we started to make it a home right away.
    We basically emptied the house, did the water-installation and electricity and started to form everything to our liking. In 2014 we finally got a new roof and the outside of the house plastered.

    Still there’s a lot to be done, most prominently and urgently the attic, but we got kids and started farming…

    Aide

    We always need help with the normal housekeeping, such as minding the kids, cooking, cleaning, feeding the animals, heating the stoves (winter), chopping wood, walking the dog, tidying up, cleaning the stables...

    For the summer there will be lots of gardening, harvesting fruits and vegetables, and much more..
    We expect a minimum stay of 8 weeks.

    Of course it is great if you bring skills like building , farming, experiences with carpentry or any other type of mechanical art, but it is NOT mandatory at all.



    Hope to see you soon, Alex and Jan
