  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area surrounding us is mostly local agriculture but there are some alternative projects.
    Our partner-project 'Eotopia' has many visitors and is hosting regular events.
    There is a small but steady infrastructure of cultural events in the area.
    Not much public transportation, but we have bicycles and a car, so we'll work sth out :)
    We are looking for a volunteer or a couple.
    We are tolerant to everything in moderation, but there is one rule that is very important to us: non-violence. Therefore, it's important to us that whoever stays on our land, will only eat a vegan diet on our property.

    We are willing to provide (vegan) meals and a simple accomodation in a 'Roullote' (Gypsy waggon). Lifestyle will be very simple and close to nature (as our first project will be to build the outdoor shower and bathroom).
