Hi everyone,
i live in the idyllic city of Heidelberg, working and protecting some of the most romantic places in town (around the favorite walking trail of Austrian empress Sissi, medieval wine growing terrasses, the cliffs and slopes of the Neuenheimer Schweiz=Switzerland of Neuenheim and many more). I am a conservation biologist and habitat manager and the goal of my work is to preserve the natural biodiversity and beauty of those sites. Most of the products(hay, apples, other fruit and timber) i give away. The land is mainly fruit orchards but also rocks and cliffs, forests, sand dunes, screes (Felsenmeere), orchid habitats and more.
Helpers are needed mostly for hay collecting, removing of invasive weeds, care for the fruit orchards, collecting of stones and other traditional farm work. moving meadows, if you know how to do it. I do not demand work on dangerous and steep slopes. You can get a letter of recommendation for work in nature conservation after a longer stay. You are being insured by the LandwirtschaftsBG (German farmer insurance company).
We live in a flat in the city but work on various plots outside of town. Shared housework. Absolutely no smoking in the flat. Im a vegetarian, so i cook only veggie food but you are welcome to prepare your own meat if you want to. There are bikes for everyone and Heidelberg is small enough so you can get everywhere by bike comfortably.
Please read everything carefully and send only serious requests.
I speek English, German, Bulgarian, French, some Spanish and Italian and im trying to learn Russian and Arabic.
