  • Description


    First of All:
    Nice you found the Way to our Profile. We shortly describe us and most of the Stuff that could be interesting to you. At the bottom we wrote down most of the Dates where help is whished for our little Project in Appenzell.
    And: currently we are looking for someone with carpentry skills or the will to be involved in constructing a wooden Foodtrailer and a new Pizza-Mudoven. The Constructingtime is around mid October to mid November.

    About Us:
    We are a young Family: Farina, Adam, Baldur, our Dog Sina and our Cat Mirabella. We are living in an old traditional house in Appenzell, which is a small area in Switzerland. Until October 2017 we lived togehter with an other Family as a community. But since they left to travel the world we decided to stay as a family in the house and enjoy the space.

    We are a family who tries to live their dreams and make the Heartvision come true. Making this world a lovely place for life , while not loosing our self in doing the best we can. Here we need your help in the simple things of life, that we can stay in balance.
    In 2016 we started our own Ecofriendly Business: We build clay ovens for other people or we go to festivals and markets to bake "organic spelt" pizzas full of Love in our own mobile clay oven.
    Adam is organzing Naturecamps for Kids and is working in the summerseason as well for a Natureschool in Graubünden. This is not only his work. It is much more his passion. Reconnecting with Nature and Wilderness. Maybe you have heard about Coyote mentoring. Besides this, he is mostly working at the Pizzaevents on the Weekends together with Farina.
    Farinas passion is Organic Gardening and Permaculture. We have a big garden which is a place of experimenting and creativity. The Idea is to eat mostly what grows in our Garden. How can we live the most sustainable way in our surrounding?
    Both of us love herbs, for eating and healing. As well we like a natural way of living. Constructing with Clay, Wood and other natural Materials. We are very Openminded to meet new people with different backgrounds. Respect and Honesty from both sides are very important to us. In our home we are free, we love to sing and to dance, to be loud and to stay in silence. It is our paradise of just being who we are. It's important for us that you respect this area and at the same time to make yourself as comfortable as possible and maybe even feel at home.

    You in our Place:
    If you visit us we can mostly offer you your own room. Only if we would have many guests like friends and or family + Workawayers it's possible that you will need to share a room. Please bring your own sleeping bag! While you stay with us you can use our instruments, stay in the Garden, take long walks in the beautyfull nature. If the day was easy in the evening we sometimes like to play funny games like wizzard or ligretto ...

    We are open for longterm guest. But if you want to stay longer then a month, we want to sit and talk after two weeks, to find out how it goes.
