Help with gardening, house maintenance, language practice
We are Guiselle (59) from Guatemala (Central America) and Hans Jürgen (58) from Germany. We are friendly and open minded people. Before we came to Czech Republic we lived in Germany and France. We have an organic vegetable garden (permaculture), make our own bread and preserve food for winter. Our cooking is international. We prefer vegetarian food, but we eat meat, too.
We are quite new in the Czech Republic and we are looking for ways of keeping in touch with other people from different countries or people from here.
This year we are going to prepare a new organic vegetable garden. We have a cat.
We speak German, English, French, Spanish and some Czech.
We would appreciate an opportunity to practise the Czech language. My wife (she was a teacher) can offer you lessons or conversation in German, English, or Spanish.
Type of help
Help in the house
cooking / shopping
The work here can include general work in the house (cleaning, dishwashing, washing, cooking, and baking) and around the house, especially in the garden (gardening: seeding, planting, weeding, and watering the plants) and cutting and collecting wood in the forest (by hand).
You will have a bed in a small single room in our house. You share bathroom and kitchen with us. The accommodation is really in family style :) but we are very friendly.
We can only take one person. Internet in the house is available (Wi-fi).
What do we expect from our volunteers:
Only non-smokers, no animals.
We expect nice and polite behaviour and willingness to do some work. Please count on becoming part of the family for the time of your stay!
We live in a very small village without many possibilities for distraction. If you come from a city, you should be able to appreciate the calm and the solitude.
We need help for 3-5 hours a day, 4-5 days a week on a flexible schedule.
Because we are not a "big" place we prefer short-time (term) stays: weekend or one week, but we are open for other possibilities.
The village of Vèvrov is situated 6 km from Horsovsky Tyn and about 40 km from Pilzen towards the border of Germany.
There are bus connections to Horsovsky Tyn. From there we can take you home by car.
