  • Description


    I am about 50 and lived many years abroad. I am a student at the University of Kassel ( History) and studied 3-dimensional Design ( Product - design/ polytechnico before). I used to live with younger people in communities. Now, back in Germany I got 2 houses and lots of garden, which need renovation and maintenance. I like hiking, surfing, dancing, travelling, nature adventures, reading, various kind of music, design and history. and I am still curios to learn more and make new experiences.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    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 there is every wednesday the spectacular watergames ( since 1800 + ) the parc is also Unesco heritage and adesigned by the european romantic period in the 19th century. as well Kasssel offers various museúms and festivals. The same diastance south is Marburg, one of the oldest German University Towns, with an old town from the 16th century, mostly students live in those houses and while walking though there, its a bit of ancient time "disneyland". And In summer 2 of the most famous hippy festivals take place close by.

    I got a few 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. When the weather is sunny and hot, we usually do a break at one of the lakes around.

    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, also welcome, the house is huge and you have enough space to be by yourself and work by yourself.

  • Aide


    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 from one house to the other.

    So there is various stuff to do and you can pick, what is your best. Usually we talk about the targets, what you like to do and what you are able to do. You should be able to work autonomous.

    In May I need someone helping me planting bushes and create new patches.
    Alternativ you may errect a little wall with natural stones around a patch or repair bycicles.

  • 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. There are several supermarkets close by and a charity shop in my street. Food and cooking habits are different with each workaway ( I got many different experience meanwhile). Usually I provide breakfast and dinner and during the day sandwishes or cookies (often homemade). In summer we mostly eat outside on the terrace and often make bbq at the fireplace. Just let me know in advance, if you do not eat certain food and what you like for breakfast. Eating time is flexible.

    Autres infos...

    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 Blabla car 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 .
