    News 4.2019 We decided to leave our Place and to move to Spain. So, we can only promise very short term appointments. We don't know exactly when we're where. And if we need help, it will be for helping with moving. Which means, carrying things from A to B ....

    You are welcome to explore!
    Go out of the daily capitalistic desaster! Come into another, beautiful life!
    We are living beside a small village in the south of France near Carcassonne (Airport). The place is at the bottom of the Montagne Noire, close to the Mediterranean Sea, the Pyrenees and the border to Spain.
    Since December 2017 we live here in a 450 year-old house made of natural stone in a valley sorrounded by our gardens, a small stream, waterfalls, mountains, pure nature and the small village road.
    We speek german, french and english.

    These are our projects:
    - growing organic vegan vegetables and fruits in Permaculture for self-catering and sale / exchange,
    - organic high class mushroom breeding,
    - building a greenhouse / tree nursery/ forest gardening,
    - collecting / processing wild / medical herbs,
    - 'Partisan Bois' - wildwood furniture & art,
    - ecologic renovations (house, caravan, huts),
    - seminars / workshops about all these topics and more ( shamanism, Tai Chi...)

    We offer:
    - vegan cuisine,
    - water supply from our own source,
    - warm water for showering from our suncollector,
    - wood for heating from our own forest,
    - dry / ecologic toilet,
    - telephone and Internet,
    - guestroom for single or couple,

    … are happy to experience a different lifestyle, support us with the work in organic vegan Permaculture gardening, forest works & tree nursery, collecting and processing wild herbs, diverse ecologic renovations in and around the house.
    And we are happy about helpers who show us, what else there is to learn.
