  • Description


    We are a little community in the great landscape of the Jura mountains in the west of Switzerland. We are situated in an old train station surrounded by meadows and forests with free running horses and cows in summertime.

    This is a place surrounded by nature, and animals. We have a garden where we apply the permaculture style and implement the permaculture philosophy in our daily lifestyle.

    It is a place for volunteers who want to learn, share, experience and enjoy. We are accompanied by chickens, ducks, cats and four wonderful horses which are our best trainers in personal development.
