We are a family with seven children and we live near Kappeln in northern Germany about ten kilometers away from the Baltic Sea or the River Schlei. We have two ponys, pigs, goats, geese, chicken, ducks, rabbits, two dogs and cats. We also farm a garden with vegetables for self-supply.
We also work with disabled people with the thought, to integrate all people our society and to give them a place, where they can feel comfortable. We visit with them the animals and are activ in a handicraft, artistic and musical way. The project is supported by the newly founded association.
We are also very interested in helpers, who have fun, to life and work in a big family for a longer period. Only with a lot of help, we can make our project possible.

We are a musical and creative family. With the disabled people, we make a lot of music and creative things, like painting and work with metal, clay and wood.
With us you can learn a lot about agriculture, the work with disabled people and animals, the living in a big family and the handling with tools and machines. If you don't speak german, you will also learn it a little bit, because we are a very talkactive family:-)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You can help us in the garden with our vegetables (sowing, planting, weeding, harvesting, proceeding...) and, if you like to stay for longer, we can show you how to deal with the animals (feeding, watering, cleaning out the stables...)
People who are interested in building and reparing are also welcome. Fences, stables and playground equipment need to repaired, and the one or other new building must building.
Also we need help, in preparing the visites of the groups.
We have a small gardenhouse with no electricity or running water but it is quiet and cosy.
You use our bathroom in the House and you can certainly charge your mobile/laptop etc. there.
We are located in the most northern part of Germany in the beautiful countryside of Angeln. As we live quite close to the Baltic Sea and the River Schlei, both about 10 km away, there is the opportunity for nearly every kind of watersports like sailing, wind- or kitesurfing or just a trip to a sandy beach for a swim. The landscape invites for bicycle tours. The cities of Kiel (50 km) and Flensburg (35 km) both are worth a visit.
As a volunteer at our "farm" you can learn a lot about the life of a big family with some animals and homegrown vegetables...
