  • Description


    We have started a communal living project in beautiful Thuringia, Germany and are also open to new flatmates (currently three people live here). We like yoga and meditation. We have a free shop with different events here. We don't have animals yet (maybe chickens in the future). We prefer helpers that stay for two weeks up to a month.
    Currently we are looking for help to build with fresh wood and papercrete. There is also always a shelve to build ;)
    We also have a big garden with lots of fruit trees and some vegetables that we are working on transitioning towards permaculture and setting up a food forest. This year we have created new beds for more vegetables, we planted potatoes, beans, tomatoes, salad, pumpkin and a lot more. We love exchanging plants and seeds, you can bring something with you if you like.
    Other tasks include: building with clay and adobe, weeding, mulching, harvesting and art or sewing projects :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn a lot of different things from us: wild plants, languages, sustainable living, energy-efficient cooking, dumpster diving, yoga ... And of course our surrounding area is beautiful and waiting for you to discover it :)

  • Help


    We are looking for helpers for building with wood and building with adobe/clay, gardening etc! As well as creative projects like wall paintings, mosaic, .. There is something for everyone :)
    Currently we accept helpers for two weeks with the option to stay longer when we get along well. In your first two weeks we will have 4 working hours per day with two days off. When you want to do more and if you stay longer we will give you a list of independent projects you could do so you will be able to make your own schedule (and be more of a friend/flatmate than a helper).

  • Accommodation


    The house is big, but in lack of private rooms for everyone, we do functional living so that helpers will be in a communal sleeping room with the option to use a private room when wanted. But mostly you will have the communal sleeping room for yourself. The WIFI is fast and reliable. We offer vegetarian food that is also freegan.
