  • Description


    Dear people, we are looking forward to this new Year and enjoy (not snow) but our work. All theres new fresh days .... and our activities playing music!

    Dear Helpers,
    We live in this historic former watermill Thomas, Elke and Marlen with Willi and Molli. In the middle of the nature reserve. The Wendland is known to many. We are happy here and try to reconcile our work with our environment. It is a constant "practice".
    What's new: we want to use scythes instead of the motorized lawnmower. Our desire is to support insect diversity. Happy to provide also bees habitat. And with everything, of course, also fellow human beings.
    You want to clean up the garden tools in the shed?
    And you know about building a chicken fence?
    Build a crater bed.
    There is room for everything here.
    This profile is mostly written in English. The healthy, environmentally conscious diet is also important to us. We are open to people who address this description and take it seriously. Please also read the English description. Here we have already met several wonderful people. Younger and older. Learning from each other, we are looking forward to a sincere togetherness. Everyone has the opportunity to personalize their privacy and private time.
    We look forward to inquiries.

    Liebe Menschen, wir schauen dem Neuen Jahr entgegen, stecken schon wieder mitten drin und genießen noch die ruhigen Januartage sowie unsere Arbeit: Musik machen.

    Dear Helpers, Liebe interessierte Helfer,
    wir leben in dieser Historischen ehemaligen Wassermühle Thomas, Elke und Marlen mit Willi und Molli. Mitten im Naturschutzgebiet. Das Wendland ist vielen bekannt. Wir sind hier glücklich und versuchen unsere Arbeit in Einklang zu bringen mit unserer Umwelt. Es ist ein ständiges „Üben“.
    Neu ist: wir möchten Sensen statt den motorisierten Rasenmäher benutzen. Unser Wunsch ist, Insektenvielfalt zu unterstützen. Gerne auch Bienen Lebensraum bieten. Und mit allem natürlich auch Mitmenschen.
    Du hast Lust, die Gartengeräte im Schuppen aufzuräumen?
    Und Du kennst dich aus mit dem Bau eines Hühnerzauns?
    Ein Kraterbeet bauen.
    Hier ist Platz für alles mögliche.
    Dieses Profil ist größtenteils in englisch geschrieben. Die gesunde, umweltbewusste Ernährung ist uns auch wichtig. Wir sind offen für Menschen, die diese Beschreibung anspricht und ernst nehmen. Bitte auch die englische Beschreibung lesen. Hier haben wir schon etliche, wunderbare Menschen kennengelernt. Jüngere und ältere. Lernen von einander, wir freuen uns über ein aufrichtiges Miteinander Sein. Wobei jeder die Möglichkeit hat, seine Privatsphäre und Privatzeit zu gestalten.
    Wir freuen uns über Anfragen.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    What is culture? Culture will mean many things. You can consume culture. You can make your own culture. The responsibility is from everybody. Sometimes we have guests learning play harp and music. You will be in the "center" of playing music, preparing good food and meeting point of culture. We like to share our favorites points with you, you must not. But if you like we ll show you theatre, cinema, punk youth center, party, culture and inform about the enormous resistance that is in this region called wendland against the energy nuclear. You will also have time with calmness and nice nature. You will be able to meet other young or not young people. Here we have harps, ukuleles, piano and guitars, you could learn and feel free learning, if you like. you can have occasion enough to meditate or write, paint whatever you like to do in calmness. It s nice if you keep your mind open to learn some few or more german words. We try to communicate in a good way and learn from each other. We can talk about having your leisure time and days off combining in an individual way.
