In the north of Germany, nearby the Mecklenburgische Seenplatte and not so far away from the Eastsea in a small village with a little lake for swimming, which is very nice especially in summertime, are living around fourty families.
Here is our house. In the garden there are 8 sheeps, 9 chicken, 3 running ducks and a lot of goldfish. We arrived in 2014. Since this time we renovate the original cowshed, mostly ecological.
We live in the area of the former GDR, therefore you will maybe find an different lifstyle to FRG. Here are living some families with their own history of refugees after second worldwar, coming back from Poland, Romania.
After the turn from GDR to FRG some families from germany west have settled down in this village, mostly looking for living in nature and more naturell life - and silence. Here are living local people together with people from Berlin, Hamburg, Dortmund, Dresden, Netherland and Austria, like a social patchwork.

This is our second looking for volunteers. The house and garden are nonsmoker areas, we have infront of the house, under a tree a smoker bench. We love our place and we like to make it much more better for a good living here, as part of the world.
