  • Description


    Hello, we are looking forward to make our space a little family-paradise, helping nature to stand tall on her own feet and legs again. My wife Jessi (34) and me (35) have three children (10, 6, 2), wich are of course very cute.
    We have our farm of half an hectar since 2013 and it has old buildings. So there many work in gardening, cutting wood for winter and of course building, but not at least spending quality time with our children is a great reason for us to choose our kind of living out here. Building is our main reason to ask for help. We're in a quiet village with no shop (maybe someday we'll open one). Next town is Cottbus, half an hour by car. We get organic food from a wholesale, so we dont often go to supermarket. Next station is 12 min by car we can always fetch and bring you. There's also a bus coming to our village a few times the day, but not very often.

    So that's it for now. Hope our ways will cross each other

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our place is good for learning non-violent and respectful interaction wtih children. We're, i guess, also kind of down to earth people trying to be honest, even when that means we're not always emotional harmonic ;-).
    We're open minded to all kind of "knowledge" and not only believing in what we can touch or see.

    Mostly in building, trying to make as much as posslible with nature material as clay, straw and wood.

  • Accommodation


    You could have a room in our house in best case. Last winter we changed our sleeping places several time, so it's not always that easy to make a clear offer but we can talk about your preferences and find a way. For Summer and even coulder days there's a little caravan in our beautiful "garden-living-room". We have no WC, but a compost-toilet in and outside the house to keep all organic stuff working for us. Showering is possible. In summertime there is also a outside solar heated shower. Smoking is not a thing that is beeing liked very much here, but not really forbidden.
