  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We are an active, multicultural (Australian-German) family of five with three spirited boys between 4 and 9 years of age. Together we live in a former bar converted into a house with lots of atmosphere and space for family and friends. The former dancehall, when not a giant play space for kids, is used for cultural events bringing some diverse culture to the old east German countryside. The fireplace and sauna help to survive the grey and cold winter days.

    We have bees and chickens, herb and vegetable gardens, a bonfire circle, a greenhouse, and a small natural pool which invites a refreshing splash or wake-up dip on the sunny days.

    We try to live as organic as possible, sustainability deep in our hearts. The house and garden transform throughout the year with the seasons, as does the experience of them.

    Any creative minds interested in doing a small art project or installation (maybe involving the kids) are very welcome!

    On some days the work involves just helping to keep the household going (cooking and cleaning!). Also, we are looking at new ways to help around supporting our kids as Kate returns to practising as a psychologist - maybe you are interested in aupairing or nannying with us?

    We have an old grand piano, a trumpet and some ukuleles and love to hear music and singing in the house!

    Of course, we are always happy to help with german language learning if you would like that.

    We have gradually become seasoned Workaway hosts with many wonderful experiences through the platform and are looking forward to many more :).

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Living in the old east German countryside provides a unique perspective of Germany. In our household we have Australian and Italian roots and we love the ongoing multicultural exchange our Workaway guests bring.

    We regularly, especially over the summer, have visitors from around the globe, who bring colour to the dinner table.

    You will be welcomed in a social circle which is very open and interested.

  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    Its a big old house with an even bigger garden, so a pair of extra hands is very welcome to plant, harvest, cut, clean, repair, tidy, build, paint, cook, play, dig, and design. There is always lots to be done!

    The three kids are very sociable and happy about an extra portion of attention: kicking the ball through the garden, baking cakes, reading books, etc. We are open to someone who would like to do more kid-caring, but this is not necessary.

    Projects in the pipeline:
    - art installation on house walls and in garden
    - finishing the little wagon for summer guest accommodation
    - converting a Trabant (old east german car) from petrol to electric drive
    - building a fully self sufficient straw bale house, which turns with the sun
    - organising community film nights
    - reviving the dance hall for concerts and events
    - leaving populism behind us
    - reducing our waste and consumerism

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    There are four guest rooms with shared and separate bathrooms. The kitchen and loungeroom are common spaces. We are also in the process (help welcome!) of converting a former bee wagon into a quiet space at the end of the garden, which provides a separate and children-free zone in the warmer months.

    Algo mais...

    We live in the lovely Brandenburg countryside - a good place to enjoy open spaces and fresh air.

    Our village is peaceful and friendly, surrounded by fields and forests (deer, wild boar, foxes, badgers, moles, hawks, cranes, wild geese, maybe even a wolf!) with a sweet swimming lake nearby. We offer guest bikes.

    The magnificent Berlin is easily accessible by train (1 hour from the Berlin Main Station) and we can offer people a lift to and from the local train station (Briesen Mark, 15 minutes away). There is a bus, though not frequent, that can allow guests to be entirely independent.

    We have a recent addition to our family, a little poodle called Honey.
