  • Description

    Description

    We live in a self-build yurt between the village, the danube and the forest of Vienna (Wienerwald) in a small community. We have a playful and friendly dog, two donkeys, 7 chicken and about 35.000 honey bees. Luc(33) is a basketmaker, a willow-grower and a permaculture-gardener. Tanja(29) is working as an art teacher and an illustrator. We work with our donkeys inspired by Natural Horsemanship and like to do a broad range of things with them: from hiking to children activities and in a few years do animal traction in the garden/the willow-plantation and riding.

    The train station to Vienna is at 15min walk-distance and then you are in Austria´s capital in 20 minutes. We have bikes that you can borrow to discover the beautiful surroundings.
    We look forward to get in contact and give you more informations and hopefully soon welcome you in our place.

    We´d love to get help in our garden f.e. building up a glass house, prepare beds, plant seeds…We will also be preparing a pasture for the donkeys, that means we need to build different gates and fences. There may be some other construction work like a compost toilet cabin f.e.
    Another task could be willow harvesting and planting or help in Luc´s basketmaker workshop nearby.
