    Description

    In my curently life I am Yoga- and Meditation teacher and traveler. To go respectful with the nature is very important to me. I love nature and animals, so i dicide to live in a country side.

    Few years ago i bought this property in Sachsen-Anhalt in Querfurt and started to work there to become sustainable. There are 2 houses, some farm buildings, 2 garage and 1 big work studio.

    I would like to create a place for peace and heeling, where the people can come and stay even when they don´t have much money to travel, but have a vision to share, wish to help, to discover and good heart too.
    Who will come here will touch the pure nature i am familiar with since my childhood. It is place for silence and going inside yourself.

    I would like to organize eco garden with the permaculture, fruit trees and medical plants.

    Even in the winter time there is always something to be done - I always like to have helpers here!

    My dream:
    In the future i would like to set up some yoga/meditation/breath work and detox retreats in this beautiful environment.
    A house for friends from all over the world. A sort off a meeting point for doing seminars for meditation, dancing, art and music.....

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Often, travellers visit cities while exploring new areas. However, experiencing rural life is a completely different view of a culture! Visitors would get to experience an area rich in history. Ther is a beautiful area with the hills, fields, forest and lots of lakes around. The wine hills are stunning, as its femous winery area in Sachsen and Sachsen-Anhalt. For a small charge you can rent the bicycle from me and discover the nature via signposted Bicycle path across The German Wine Route and the pilligrims Way of Saint James (Jacob´s Weg, The Camino de Santiago).
    Just in 5 km. in Querfurt you will found the huge custle with its museums, cafes and cultural events, where many mooves has made. iit's a beautiful cute city on the Romanik Way.

    As far as time permits, I would like to show you around.

    LANGUAGE
    You wanted always to learn the foreigner language, but don’t want to sit with a books or never find time for it?
    Take a vacation and go for it NOW!
    The best opportunity finely to do that to stay with the people in the country and help them out-so you have a reason to communicate. You will learn fast and have a fun by. And by the way you will meet a different people and mentalitys and that can change your life.

    Help

    Everyone is welcome with the new ideas us i just on the start with my project.
    There are always so many things that could be done that each Workawayer could select activities best fitting his/her skills and interests. I would expect around 4-5 hours per day of work (5 days per week).

    I dont plan everything exactly, it has to flow. There is enough to do in various fields and the tasks arise locally on their own.

    You are good with tools? Your mission might be helping to repair an ailing barn. Green thumb? Garden and orchard for you. You can paint? Welcome to paint the walls or the gates and so on..
    And maybe someone can paint mandalas, Buddha, Ganesh or similar things, Thats will be great!

    Main help will be;
    renovating, helping to construct, painting
    giving a hand with general maintenance, cleaning
    Help with Eco project; creating eco gardens and stone garden, permaculture

    Needed help now:
    NOW is garden time!))) Generell Gardenlandscaiping: making the yard ground, prepare der soil for the plants, plantig trees
    I am interested in upcycling.
    If someone could do carpentry stuff, you are welcome to try your creativity and for example to build one big wardrobe from some olds wardrobes. Also terrace with roofing is planned.

    Everyone is welcome with their own ideas.
    Bricklayer work, work with sandstone
    If someone knows how to work with natural stone - limestone - it would be amazing!
    On photo you can see a wonderful old sandstone ( limestone) wall. If someone knows about it and can restore it, it would be great!

    It is important that you can work independently.

    Now i have 2 dogs from Moskau shelter and i would need maybe help with them as well.
