  • Description


    We are a couple living in a house with a pretty big garden in a quite green part of the ruhr area „Ruhrgebiet“ close to the lower rhine area “Niederrhein” in North Rhine-Westfalia.

    We are looking for helpers for gardening and any kind of work that comes in an older house. We always have jobs and projects around house&garden to be done as well as new ideas 😊

    We live ecofriendly, take care for the environment and practise foosharing (saving foods of being wasted from private and from groceries). Trying to reduce, reuse, recycle or rebuy are our living principles which we’d like to share with you.

    You will live in your own spacious apartment in a separate area of the house with your own kitchen, entrance and a terrace at the back side with garden view.

    Vegetarian food is basically included (planted basic staples like vegetables, fruits, bread, grains, cereals, herbs, tea etc.). If you like to eat something else like meat or candys, feel free to buy it on your own and use it in your kitchen. Take your meals whenever you want and cook what you like to eat on your own. Our lunch and dinner times are very various so this will work the best for all of us. Nevertheless we would appreciate if you‘d cook a meal once a day for all of us.

    A cat and several inhabitants of our close-to-nature-garden live with us and should be fine for you :)

    Completed covid vaccination and a negative test at arriving date are obligated for your stay.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We’d like to show you ecofriendly and moneysaving living with gardening, growing foods, reusing and repairing stuff, saving foods in different ways and doing/producing things on your own instead of buying it industrial made.

    We speak German, English and basic Italian.

    In the agglomeration many sport activities as well as (industrial) culture and many museums wait for you.

    We help you finding and organizing the activities you like. From time to time we also would be happy to show you our home town and the area around if you are interested in.

    In general you might spend your free time on your own due to your own living area and as we both need our own space, too. But, we are open for new education and let’s see how it comes :)

  • Aide


    You help us 4 hours/5 days per week. Working times can be arranged flexible due to your preferences.

    The garden is in change from traditional to natural with different areas. Several projects wait for your help to get realized like making new step parth, building a chill-area, repairing our tree house, recreating the pond, converting the compost, building a compost toilet, implementing plants … as well as classic gardening jobs.

    Around house&garden there is always a lot to do: woodworking, repairing work, refurbishing furniture, housework,…

    Repairing clothes, building some new equipment or painting the outdoor furniture might also be possible work if you like.

    We‘d also appreciate if you cook the daily meal (vegetarian)
    for us (optional).
