  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple ( Martin and Sabine) living with an elderly aunt, on a small farm in the beautiful Black Forest in Germany. We have 2 horses, sheep, cats. Charlie the dog, and a small garden where we grow organic vegetables. We live in an old farmhouse, which we are in the process of renovating and extending. The house is situated in a peaceful valley, immersed in nature. There are many forest walks starting from the house. Our ultimate aim is to create a space where people can come to reconnect with nature, and themselves. We love to meet new people and exchange ideas. We would normally take volunteers from April until November. However, should you wish to experience the winter here, that can be a possibility.

    Our main priorities for help are with the garden, the animals, general maintenance and some cooking would be nice.
    Now after a great summer with lovely guests, we made quiet a progress and look also for help with the building work to support Martin. The farm is more than 300 years old and needs now a lot woodwork to create the new space.

    There is a single, comfortable bedroom in the house. Because of the works being done for the renovation, the remainder of the house has basic conditions. There is a shared bathroom. We mostly dine outside in the summer.
    Now we are able to offer a cosy and nice caravan as well.
