    Description

    In the north of Germany, nearby the Mecklenburgische Seenplatte and not so far away from the Eastsea in a small village with a little lake for swimming, which is very nice especially in summertime, are living around fourty families.
    Here is our house. In the garden there are 6 sheeps, 12 chicken, 7 running ducks and a lot of goldfish. We arrived in 2014. Since this time we renovate the original cowshed, mostly ecological.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in the area of the former GDR, therefore you will maybe find an different lifstyle to FRG. Here are living some families with their own history of refugees after second worldwar, coming back from Poland, Romania.
    After the turn from GDR to FRG some families from germany west have settled down in this village, mostly looking for living in nature and more naturell life - and silence. Here are living local people together with people from Berlin, Hamburg, Dortmund, Dresden, Netherland and Austria, like a social patchwork.

    Last Year we got the new experience of workaway–host – it was a very good summer with many helpful hands and very kindly people and also we have made a very special experience that had shown us that chemistry between people with all efforts does´not fit always – read for more the feedbacks !

    So we like to go on to have a good summer - we like to have helping hands for renovation the house and work in the garden again !

    Last year we have started renovation of our threshing floor, this year we will finish it, we will make a wooden ceiling with thermal insulation, the wall needs clay and lime color. We will use a scaffolding.

    We will make firewood, some building material need new order.

    Some electrical work is to do.

    Our terrain need more fences, built with hedges, graze, wood and stone, a new duckshed and some help to develop permaculture in the fruit and vegetable garden.

    This is our third looking for volunteers. The house and garden are nonsmoker areas, we have infront of the house, under a tree a smoker bench. We love our place and we like to make it much more better for a good living here, as part of the world. The manifestation, witch everybody can see, is our highest value for the experience how to love and live together. If you have the same idea of life and want support, than come as soon as possible.
