    Beschreibung

    Our former water mill is situated in private setting with a little current, meadows and a small piece of wood near the geographical center of Germany on the southern edge of the Harz mountains. Since the building has been abandoned for more or less 15 years, there is lots of things to do. We started with a little community and all these wonderful helpers in January 2016 to restore the place mainly with material out of nature and from the neighbourhood ;-)
    More than building new features, things are rearranged. Hence a former dog pound became a greenhouse with raised beds. Existing fences were taken down in order to re-erect them as a surrounding of the cottage garden. In the house, sleeping rooms are converted into an office, kitchen/ sitting room and the mill tower contains whatever we need at the moment. We love to experiment and to get creative. With some closed down train rails next door, the old mill current, a past electricity-supply tower, plenty of wild nature around us, a wonderful four-sided farm... it seems opportunities are endless. It is our aim to give back to this mill the love it deserves, to find compromises with the arisen wild, wonderful nature, to create a place for living together, to use wild herbs and other gifts from nature and to observe a lot foremost, before we interfere.
    By now a little family lives here: Jule, Stephan and our children Jakob *2019 and Lotte *2021. We would love to have support with exploring things with our children and cooking. So there is more time left for mill-projects ;-)
    Befor it happened that we became a familiy, we started into the day with morning gymnastics/ Yoga, collected wild herbs for a smoothie and saw about, what the day holds in store for us. Quite often, the evenings were spent together, making music around the fire, we painted, knitted … With helpers we want to include these activities again into our live :-) especially our vegetablegarden is not getting attention at all :-(
    Vegetarian and vegan meals are possible. What we wish for is a welcoming place full of trust, awareness and no need for drugs and alcohol...

    This place is so beautiful and worth to see and support. once a year we are organising a theater workshop. if possible, we start into the day with morning gymnastics/ Yoga, collect wild herbs for a smoothie and see about, what the day holds in store for us. We are working a lot with clay and wood. Quite often, the evenings are spent together, making music around the fire, … What we wish for is a welcoming place full of trust and awareness.
