    Beschreibung

    We are located in a picturesque little village inside the biosphere reserve Bliesgau, near the baroque town Blieskastel and Saarland´s capital Saarbrücken.

    We run a little farm with social- (animal-assisted) educational approach (youth welfare program since 1999). We have a small greehouse for nursing our young plants and salads and stuff which later turns into a tomato jungle with many sorts of basil underneath it and we have a bigger tunnel greenhouse, where we grow all kinds of wonderful fruits like peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, herbs and later many tomatoes again as well. Around the tunnel and thru the big wild garden area we have ca. 1000qm of garden beds, some little ponds and much space for wild animals as we did build a lot of dry stone walls and areas with dead wood within. We go our path to more and more permaculture and to mulching and composting for setting up a healthy edaphon. Last year we created our first huge Hugel bed and now are building a second one and we have also rised beds and cold frames as well. We only use best quality organic seeds and are about to use our own seed material soon. Beside the wonderful fresh vegetables and the big herb garden, our wealth on edible wild plants is enormous and we could live just from that if we would want that. But what could be greater than collecting a huge bowl of different tastes and colours of all that wonderful veggie stuff and create the most tasty meals with that? We love every plant, how small it ever is and we know there´s some special magic in between all the countless little places in the garden where nature can just roam like it wants to. We have some walnut trees which are all very special places and you can sit there for hours, listen to the sound of the birds and some wind chimes in the branches and if you sit still for a while, there will be mice saying hello and running over your feet or at least a cat will come by and jump on your shoulder (that´s no joke, I trained the cat to do so, so please don´t get scared ^^).
    There is an orchard in the middle of the garden with many cherry-, apple-, quince-, plum and mirabelle trees and we have planted many old sorts of fruit trees on the grassland around the village. On the farm there are also 2 horses, 4 donkeys, 23 chickens with soon again baby chicks (the chickens can do the jumping thing as well!! ^^), a dogs & many cats living with us. In the mornings and evenings you can hear the donkeys singing their special song and in the nights you hear the deer barking and the beautiful song of the different owls.

    !! Important: As we were once a community but now some things did change and we are "just" a farm now still, we for now have no own room for our guests. We used to have a holiday flat in one of our buildings and inside that an own beautiful room for our Workawayers. But due to changings that happen, we had to rent out the flat and now we are about to build a new room for our helpers. We already did build a beautiful little bathroom but still we have no room for guests to sleep and to cook and such.
    That is the reason why the profile for now is just open for later requests or for people who are per example living close to us and wouldnt need to sleep here or maybe also people who have a bus or caravan with them.
    We had such wonderful guests already until now and we hope we can continue soon to manage to make wonderful stays possible but for now we cannot host the normal way and maybe would need to cancel a request if you write us and we cannot provide what you need in this time. Please bear with us, we do our best to make it possible again. !!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You can lern a lot about horti- and permaculture and also about social projects with young people and animal keeping. The Bliesgau is a wonderful region with plenty of nature and our village is small and very beautiful. There are busses going to the next city Blieskastel; an old and cozy baroque town. Saarbrücken, the main city of the Saarland you can also easily reach by bus train. You can also use our bicycles so you can explore the region on your own.
