  • Descrição


    I live in an old house from 1785 in the countryside but close to the village. My next neighbour is the mill. I am a host on workaway since 2012 because I like to have people around me. I invite people from all over the world to my cosy home instead of traveling around the world, as I have done when I was young ( I feel stiil young but my passport says I am 64 years old) . I have three children, who are not living at home anymore, but they like to come back to visit their mom.
    The main help is needed in the garden and running the household. I have a big vegetable garden and I am nearly selfsufficient. The garden is organic. So you must be willing to get your hands dirty, weeding, making kompost, cleaning the goatshed can be quite hard. But in return you will learn a lot about organic gardening. You will give a hand with making juice and jam, picking berries. All of the bread is homemade and I can teach you if you would like to learn how.
    I have several educations, ceramist, masseuse and yogateacher. I am self employed and most of the time at home. So we work together inside and outside the house. I teach yoga in the evening at a school nearby.
    When you come to stay here you will be a part of the family and you will learn a lot about the danish lifestyle and danish hygge. Originally I am from Germany, but I have lived in DK in 43 years. Although my pasport is german I am fully integratet into the danish livestyle. Although it is sometimes very busy in the house, there is time for coffee or tea and a chat. We help each other with the duties in the daily life. If you like to cook my kitchen is yours and I would love to learn about some dishes of your home country and food culture.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    The atmosphere in my house is very familiar. We share the breakfast with guests and friends, so be prepared for long and very interesting discussions. In the evening we often have a little bonefire in the garden (summer) or sitting together on the terrasse, where we share a glas of wine or beer after a good working day or during winter it would be in kitchen/living room. All food is provided . I love to cook and we help each other with the cooking. In the summer most of the vegetables are from the garden. I am not vegetarian, but I often cook vegetarian dishes. I like to learn new dishes from your homecountry. I will teach you everything I know about organic farming and suistainable way of living. But I also like to learn from volunteers, their culture their way of doing things. Only together by inspiring each other we can make the world to a better place to live. I am looking forward to meet you!

    Plans for 2024 is to repair and paint windows, spring or summer. In March if we are not covered in snow we will get the garden and garden furniture ready. All that needs people who are not afraid of dirty hands and with the patient and the will to work on one project for a longer time. The result will be gorgeous but it needs some power💪!
    A dream is to get a new chickenhouse if you have abilities for DIY, carpentry.
    In exchange you will learn a lot about suistainable building as we do everything with clay, wood and other suistainable building materials.
    Otber big dreams are building for the future a greenhouse.
    FarmAnimals in the moment are the goats but no babygoats this year as they are not pregnant. In the summer it is mostly gardening, a lot of weeding. It might not be the most fun task, but necessary when your garden is ecofriendly. Autumn is harvest time. Apple harvest and juice making (september/october) and getting the garden ready for winter.

    Accomadation is in the little guest room at the back of the house.

    Couples or two friends are very welcome. Normally lenght of staying is 14 days, but can be extended if we are going well together and there is place. In wintertime I only have place for one or two volunteers, if you are friends as you share a room.

    The island Als is in the south of Denmark. It has a special historie as it had been part of germany until 1920. The island had been settled since the bronceage and you find monuments all over the island. It is a place for nature lovers with empty beaches, big forest and very rural sites . In summer you can have a swim in the fresh and very clean sea. Social life like musik and other events mostly happen in Sønderborg. Although it is an island it doesn´t feel like it as there is a bridge to Jutland. By car you are in Germany in 45 min. Hamburg is 2½hours drive from here.
    When you come here I will pick you up in Sønderborg. You can borrow bikes for exploring the island. There is good bustransfer to Sønderborg every hour.
