Area: HamburgWelcome in Hamburg ! We are a young family living in a beautifull nature where we founded an eco-project early this year near by a nature reservat . Although you will not believe when you see the beautifull landscape here, we are still inside Hamburg. We always need help with farming , restauration and other things you possibly like to do here. We have enough space for ideas, or simply enjoy the beautifull atmosphere while helping to develop this project. We wish you would stay at least 2 weeks, and you can decide if you live more seperate with own cooking and housing or close to us in the main house. We are at the beginning with this eco project - and many things will be done the first time. If you like - let´s contact via Skype, let´s see if we have free space in your prefered time period. Yours Vera, Louisa, Anna, Arnd
