  • Description


    Almost 4 years ago, three university students decided to stop just talking about things and start doing them. And in time the project was born.
    Here, at the beautiful lake Constance, we are building and creating a place of possibilities. We are creating a platform that enables us and the people around to express and realize their ideas, grassroots style. A place for personal growth combined with political discussions and action. An experimental living project with sustainability and harmony in mind. A place for workshops, discussion rounds, concerts, cinema evenings, second hand markets, lectures, ... (add your own idea;)

    We're situated under apple trees on a meadow only five bike minutes away from lake Constance. We have got a community kitchen in one of the buses,
    there is a compost toilette and cold shower (but you can take the bike to the university building (3 min.) where you will find a warm one (the building is open 24h). Right now we don't have electricity or running water, so the nights are lit up by romantic candlelight :)

    We try to live as sustainable as possible, so we mainly eat organic food at the best bought from farmers in the neighbourhood.

    Hey guys and girls out there!

    This summer, exactly first two weeks of August, we're moving to a new place, and organizing a "moving festival". The preparations are starting already a week before. It would be nice to have a small team of volunteers around to share this intense time! If you have time to help during this three weeks (from last week of July to mid August), you're very welcome to send us a message, and come around!

    There are a lot of different things to do which you can normally choose from. These includes: Help renovating the Caravans, building a proper toilettehouse, help with the cooking, conserving applesauce, building different other tings. If you are good with painting or spraying you could make an art project out of one of the Caravans. And you can always bring in your ideas. Just help us to make the place even more beautiful and welcoming :-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Sometimes we have uni classes, so we're not always around (If you are interested in intellectual learning as well, you are of cause welcome to come with us!) Otherwise it would be awesome if you are happy to work independently from time to time.

    You can have the most awesome and interesting experience here! We usually have a lot of fun and it is a place for adventures and possibilities. But sometimes nights are cold and a lot of life is taking place outside, so the whole thing can also be a bit of the outdoor experience :)

    If you are interested please write when you want to come and how long you want to stay (best approximation).
