Hey there we are Mel and Holger living on an old Farm near Berlin,
we are as much self sufficient as we can means we have Solar Panels, heating with wood in winter, we repair the cars on our own, growing vegetables and fruits in our garden without any chemicals, we refurbish and restore the house inside and outside to make it stable again, its a three corner house- old farm from the 1800, we usually go in the forest to pick mushrooms and herbs to eat, have some fruit trees and a vegetable garden. And 1 beautiful cat to care for.

With us you can learn to appreciate our life as it is cos going into the forsst to find food or sitting down on a chair for hours to safe some self made seeds can be annoying and beautiful on the same time. We prepare food for wintertime because we don`t wan`t to eat normal supermarket vegetables with all the chemicals. On top of that we can teach you how to repair a car, constructions, refurbish and rstore the house. You can lern to be self sufficient.
You will be included in our house as a friend and will have the opportunities to live and have fun with the locals. Till now everybody loved our surroundings and till now everybody left as a friend.
We are traveler and want either to support other traveler to give them a roof over their head and we need some help for our gardening and construction work, we can teach everything what has to do with garden, animal, building and being self sufficient. We have a big fire space in our big garden, bicycles and lot more to offer.
We always have work to do same as summer or wintertime. we have lots of projects coming up which depends on how much helpers we get. We really do everything on our own. And we are able to teach you how to survive on your own with constructions or vegetables etc
We will include YOU as a familymember to this place!!! We will sit together for dinner and when we have some activities coming up like partys or swimming etc we always try to include you with us as a friend... there is no mine or yours... you are very much welcome and we love to get to know you whoever you are. You can be the person you are or you like to be, we don`t juge.
Mel likes to cook and makes sometimes her own bread, juice, soda water, specialized in making Paneer cheese, sour cabbage, red cabbage and gurkens. We eat Vegetarian or Vegan, we get the eggs from the neighbors chicken. We love to sit together for dinner, having an afternoon walk through the forest or making a fire in the garden. we are planing to have a Pool and a Sauna soon next year too.
Mel is practicing yoga and meditation which you can join too.
It would be awesome to get some help and having some people around who liked to stay a while with us.
