  • Description


    I am about 50 and lived many years abroad. I am a student at the University of Kassel and used to live with younger people in communities. Now, back in Germany I got 2 houses and lots of garden, which need renovation, maintenance and I got some projects in mind. I love music, books, hiking, travelling, nature adventures, design and history.

    Its the village of "Little-Red- Ridinghood", the country of the German Fairy tales (written by Brothers Grimm). The next big city is Kassel, famous for its museums, Park Wilhelmshöhe ( Unesco heritage). In the other direction is Marburg, one of the oldest universities of Germany, very oldstyle and romantic archtitecture. If you are interested I can tell you about the history and local culture. I got a few bicycles and there are biketrails close to my house and hiking trails close to the old house in the Kellerwald.
    I usually like to host more than one workaway, so its also a place, where you may meet other workaways.

    I got two houses to take care of. One is a modern bungalow, which needs gardening.
    The other one is an 300 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 from one house to the other.

    In general there is lots of garden work so digging, planting, etc. There are also some creativ jobs to do as redo the pathways ( create a pattern), stairs and low walls for planting herbs and strawberry with natural stones, constructing gates/arches and a hut/tipi out of thick branches, weaving a fence out of thin flexibel branches etc.

    Work targets in January: If its not rainy or frozen, there is still garden work as digging, cutting and sawing wood, bushes have to be trimed and maybe trees planted. As well you can choose one of the creative projects mentioned above.
    Indoors work is tearing of wallpaper, plastering walls, take off old color from furniture, sanding and repaint.

    You do not have to be skilled in all of that, but should be able to work autonomous.
    Usually I give you a target of 4hrs work, which you can do individualy by yourself or set up a fix timing for thoose work, which needs more hands.

  • Hébergement


    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.
    I provide breakfast and dinner (lunch depending, depends when you get up ;-) .
    As I got a huge house, I can offer enough space for a general required quarantine.

    Autres infos...

    The villages are in the center of Germany , all trains north-south stop here and stops of Flixbus are closeby. Some workaways took advantage of its central location and popped in few times.
    Its a good place for cycling, jogging and long-distance-hiking, next to the house is a glider airport (often free rides). In summer there are lakes for swimming and canoeing .
