  • Beschreibung


    we are a small community of 5 adults and 4 kids.
    In the main house live Sarah and Derek, a German/Canadian couple with Tom and Finley. They bought the house with a big yard and garden 25km away from Rostock in a very small village. Since march 2020 Sarahs sister Kim, her husband Jonas and their daughters Noemi and Leila are living in the house as well. Caroline, Sarahs and Kims Mum, lives in her campervan on the property. We all have our seperate private rooms and share the kitchen and eating area. We take turns in cooking dinner and that’s where we meet at least once a day for a shared meal. But it is also the area where we just hang out together.

    Right now we are in the process of finishing the renovations on the house. We also do a lot of gardening since everything is growing beautifully this time of the year. Our current projects are:

    Painting the house
    improving and moving the solar shower
    gardening (weeding, lawn mowing, cutting bushes, extending the vegetable garden)
    harvesting, harvesting, harvesting (potatoes, cherries, apples, pears, plums,...) and making yummy things out of it
    Childcare - All four kids are under six and need more or less constantly be looked after
    Building a windshelter for our common outside area
    Maybe building a lean-to for tools, bikes...

    Most of us are at home most of the time because of parental leave or home office and are involved in the projects around here. We love to stay outside whenever it´s possible and often enjoy a nice campfire at night. There is several beaches around we love to go to and have fun with the kids and would be happy to give you a ride.

    There is also a lot to discover around the area we live. In 25-30 mins you can access several different beaches where you can just swim, or do water sports. Warnemünde as well as Rostock are only a 30 mins drive away and both are towns worth visiting if you are looking for a real holiday feeling.

    We are excited for help as much as getting to know new people and sharing ideas and skills.
