*** Merry Christmas to everyone - we are happy to host again next year! ***

About us: We are a family with two boys (6 and 4 years old) and we live in a small village near the little town of Dannenberg in northern Germany. Our home is a big old farmhouse with a pretty big garden, beautiful and with a lot of opportunities. We have chickens, geese and about 60 sheep. We grow some vegetables for our own needs. All this means, that there is always plenty of work for any skill level. We both are freelancers, Lisbeth works mostly in the home-office (teaching and translation), Hans Christian works at different sites and is away frequently during the weekdays.

We can use help with the animals, the garden, the renovation work of the house and the other buildings, with chopping and stacking fire-wood, with washing and sorting wool and with our small farming activities in general. We also expect you to help with the every day household tasks. If you like to cook from time to time, you ... more inside

This is around 60km from Frankfurt am Main (Airport). We are renovating the house since 2015 and many things have been realised inside the house by now. Now our big project is the GARDEN.

We want to transfer the garden into a PERMACULTURE GARDEN.

We grow some of our own veggies/fruits already and buy at a local farmer shop (bio-dynamically produced food).
We reduced plastic in our everyday life and cook with fresh veggies and products.

Mirko is a social worker and Karin is doing workshops for women in nature.

We need HELP IN the HOUSE and in the GARDEN:


Inside: help making pasta, baking bread, making jam

Outside: cut bushes and trees, help with the the garden care and harvest, dig soil-terraces, car... more inside

SELF DESCRIPTION:

We are a family of 5, parents with three children. We work as freelancers in the social and consulting sector. Our home is in a small, nice and quiet village only 23km away from Hannover, the state capital of Lower Saxony with 500.000 inhabitants. Our place is very rural and surrounded by fields, forests and some lakes. There are various opportunities for walking, cycling, running or swimming. It takes 15 min by bike or 5 min by bus to the small city of Großburgwedel where you find various shops and everything for your daily needs.

We love making music, reading books and doing various kinds of sports. During garden season we enjoy gardening. Often we eat vegetarian food, but we are not restrictive.

It`s been quite some time now that we are participating in this program.
We never get tired of new people staying and having strangers turning into friends.

Also our neighbors and others in the village are enjoying the exchange.They are always up for a smaltalk, which is great for you to practice your german!

About us:
We run a dairy farm. We also grow all sort of crops. Either to feed our animals or to sell them. We also grow apples, plums, pears, potatoes and many other things that grow in a garden.
There is never a time during summer where u can not just go outside and eat something straight from where it grows..

Ruesselhausen is a small village. Just perfect to be in the nature. There are bikes for you to use so you can discover the surrounding nature.
It would be good if you speak a little German because not all of us speak english. However, experience has shown that even if u don`t speak german it won`t be a big problem to get along and have a good time.

Welcome in Eden!

We are two families with three children, living on a small farm in South Germany (Dürnau, Baden Württemberg).

Our goal is to get a somewhat (self-) sustainable small farm running here, but we are really at the beginning since we just bought that farm in spring 2018. There are a lot of things we still need to figure out what to do with on that farm. For example we'd like to re-activate some horse machines instead of using that old tractor we bought together with the building. But there is a lot of work to be done till we may think about things like that.

Our life on the Farm is focused on Family, Children and work that can be done together. We spend a lot of time with our kids, doing things with them (we also work with them and they are always welcome to help us to do things), practicing ATTACHMENT PARENTING. What sometimes seems like we're spoiling them by always doing what they want - but there is a lot of theory in the background and we read a lot of book... more inside

Help needed in and around an old water mill right in the middle of Germany.

At the moment the mill is home to my mother (Barbara, 60), myself (Catherina, 39) and our dogs(2), cats(5) and horses(4)... and our newest arrivals: some Indian runner ducks and chicken. The renovation of the inside of the house is mostly finished, but the mill itself and the surrounding pastures will be a “work in progress” for the next years. There are many different projects – the (future) garden, cleaning out the outbuildings, checking the mill race, optimizing the stables (fencing, concreting etc.) – so there are various jobs, small ones or bigger ones, depending on weather and time available.

So let us know in your letter, if you have any special skills … and if not ;-) : we would also welcome help with the daily chores around the house, the garden and/or in the stables. (We don't ask you to do anything we aren't willing to do ourselves). You should be able to work on your own some of the time. I... more inside
