    Description

    Dear interested people,

    The nights are mild, the day is bright and beautiful. Yes, sometimes it rains. We are currently preparing for the next festival and can still use two helping hands, we are happy about empathic people.

    We live in this historic former water mill Thomas, Elke and Marlen with Willi and Molli. In the middle of the nature reserve. The Wendland is known to many. We have been happy here for over 20 years and try to harmonize our work with our environment. It is a constant "practice". GMO-free! We want people who want to live here longer or shorter. Living in the country means walking barefoot in summer or in rubber boots in autumn. Diversity of insects. Have patience and tenacity. Begin and endure an activity and find a conclusion. Put away tools again. Things that are actually taken for granted. Speak out when something does not work or is not understood. Good communication makes it easier for everyone. Exchange ideas about the project: Dreaming is important, action follows.

    We dream of converting our project “living space into a cooperative / association. The association should continue what we have been doing for a long time: creating culture, preserving monuments and nature conservation. Here you can experience the seasons and see beauty in the different moods. Those who keep their eyes open can see. Healthy, environmentally conscious diet. This also means that we are learning more and more to avoid plastic waste. We want people who really want it.

    We don't need a power drink from the supermarket or power super food from overseas: we have everything here, you just have to perceive it. There are organic potatoes from our neighbor, the organic farmer. Our diet is simple and colorful, protein is available from many vegetarian / increasingly vegan foods. Permaculture: let's prepare. The advantage of these past months: we had more time for the garden. That was very nice, we would like to work more with the garden, take care of most of the farm community ourselves.

    Activities here: harvesting herbs, drying them, bagging them. Here is the wild herb paradise. Assistance in organizing the next concerts. We call ist Festival, there are two nonprofit concerts . According to the seasons. Building and maintaining a bed For seed, pulling out seeds, sorting wood, making wood, sifting through tools and caring for them. Paint a door in the house, tidy up. Do you want to build a sweat lodge? Come on. Here is the idea of a small, fine manufacture. build a chicken fence. Or for quails.

    We also welcome someone who can do carpentry work. Clay work can soon be the turn. We are open to people who address this description and take it seriously. We are sure to learn from each other. We have already met many wonderful people here. Younger and older. We look forward to a sincere togetherness. Everyone has the opportunity to design their own privacy and private time. We like to support anyone who is curious about this environment. In addition to the normal exchange, we need our own time for our work: preparing concerts and workshops. Office work. Now it's late summer, garden tools need to be looked after, plums and apples need to be collected. Welcome!

    Liebe interessierte Menschen,
    Die Nächte sind mild, der Tag ist hell und schön. Ja, mal regnet es. Wir bereiten uns gerade vor für das nächste Festival und können gern noch zwei helfende Hände gebrauchen, freuen uns über empathische Menschen.
    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 seit über 20 Jahren und versuchen unsere Arbeit in Einklang zu bringen mit unserer Umwelt. Es ist ein ständiges „Üben“. Gentechnikfrei! Nur die Maßnahmen von „oben“, die verändern unser Leben.

    Wir wünschen uns Menschen, die länger oder kürzer hier leben wollen.
    Auf dem Land leben heißt, mal barfuß laufen im Sommer, oder in Gummistiefeln im Herbst. Insektenvielfalt. Geduld haben und Hartnäckigkeit. Eine Tätigkeit beginnen, auch aushalten können und einen Abschluss finden. Werkzeuge wieder wegräumen. Dinge, die eigentlich selbstverständlich sind. Aussprechen, wenn etwas nicht geht oder nicht verstanden wird. Eine gute Kommunikation macht es für alle leichter..

    Sich über das Projekt austauschen:
    Träumen ist wichtig, dem folgt das Handeln.
    Wir träumen davon, unser Projekt „Lebensraum in eine Genossenschaft / Verein umzuwandeln. Der Verein soll das weiterführen, was wir eh schon lange tun: Kultur schaffen, Denkmalpflege und Naturschutz.

    Hier kannst du Jahreszeiten erleben und Schönheit in den verschiedenen Stimmungen erkennen.
    Wer offenen Auges ist, der sehe.

    Gesunde, umweltbewusste Ernährung. Das heißt auch, wir lernen immer mehr, Plastikmüll zu vermeiden. Wir wünschen uns Menschen, die das auch so wirklich wollen. Wir benötigen kein power-Drink aus dem Supermarkt, kein power-Super-Food aus Übersee: wir haben alles hier, man muss es nur wahrnehmen. Hier gibt es Biokartoffeln von unserem Nachbarn, dem Biobauern. Unsere Ernährung ist schlicht und bunt, Eiweiß gibt es über viele vegetarische/ immer mehr Vegane Lebensmittel. Permakultur: bereiten wir vor.
    Der Vorteil dieser vergangenen Monate: wir hatten mehr Zeit für den Garten. Das war sehr schön, wir möchten mehr mit dem Garten arbeiten, die Hofgemeinschaft zum großen Teil selbst versorgen.
    Dazu brauchen wir Unterstützung.

    Tätigkeiten hier:
    Kräuter ernten, trocknen, eintüten. Hier ist das Wildkräuterparadies.
    Unterstützung beim Organisieren der Konzerte. Gemäß den Jahreszeiten. ein Beet bauen und pflegen, Samen vorziehen, Holz sortieren, Holz machen, Werkzeug Sichten u. Pflegen. Im Haus auch mal eine Tür streichen, aufräumen.
    Du willst eine Schwitzhütte bauen? Na los.
    Hier ist die Idee einer kleinen, feinen Manufaktur.
    einen Hühnerzaun bauen. Oder für Wachteln.

    Wir freuen uns auch über jemand, der Zimmermannsarbeiten machen kann. Lehmarbeiten können bald dran sein.
    Wir sind offen für Menschen, die diese Beschreibung anspricht und ernst nehmen. Ganz sicher lernen wir voneinander. Hier haben wir schon viele wunderbare Menschen kennengelernt. Jüngere und ältere. Wir freuen uns über ein aufrichtiges Miteinander Sein. Wobei jeder die Möglichkeit hat, seine Privatsphäre und Privatzeit zu gestalten. Wir untersützen gern, der neugierig ist für diese Umgebung. Über den normalen Austausch hinaus brauchen wir unsere eigene Zeit für unsere Arbeit: Konzerte und Workshops vorbereiten. Büroarbeit. Jetzt ist erstmal Spätsommer, Gartenwerkzeug will gepflegt werden, Pflaumen und Äpfel wollen gesammelt werden. Herzlich Willkommen!
