We are a family of 4 with two children and changed from Berlin to Uckermark for staying close to nature. Here we live on a former LPG (kind of farm), consisting of 4 buildings on 1ha. It is located in Boitzenburger Land, in natural preserve Uckermärkische Seen and in the entrance to Mecklenburgische Seenplatte (another group of lakes).
Our educational background is in the fields of nursing, psychology, cooking and teaching. We speak german, bumpy englisch and some french and are searching for help in building and gardening. Our nutrition is rather pure biological with some vegetable and fruit from own gardening.
