About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

DATES:
-- FROM NOW TILL 29 JUNE
-- FROM 3 SEPTEMBER TILL 31 OCTOBER

Our main project is garden remodeling, besides a little help in French language for our children would be fun (if you speak French)!

Garden remodelling: expect to get dirty smile

- re-modelling slopes
- setting new plants, cutting unwanted greenery
- working on an open-air car parking place
- modernising (re-doing) the garden walkway made out of natural stones/gravel
- perhaps renovating a wooden outbuilding
- many more depending on what skills you have

I will show you what and how to do and you can schedule the tasks individually. Of course, you will have your well deserved free time as well!

Some physical strength is required (we live on a hillside), and DIY skills are useful (but not necessary)! Materails, tools and working gloves are provided.

We are a multi-lingual international family with two children aged 11 and 13, two rabbits and a cat. We are very internationally minded and travelled extensively around the world.

We live in Klosterneuburg, right next to the Vienna Woods (literally next door is the forest!) at a superbly quiet place and just a stone's throw away from the capital Vienna.

We are constantly improving our garden, mostly by ourselves, and sometimes a few additional helping hands would be great!
