We (Ulrike, born in 1966, and Niels, born in 1980) live on a small farm with 9000 m² of land with our goats and chickens. We cultivate fruit, vegetables, potatoes and herbs, and make cheese and other dairy products for our own use.
Our place was founded in 2005 as a "workshop for peace". Peace, for us, means more than the absence of war. It also means to stop cooperation with injust and life-threatening economical structures. Therefore we combine our "mind" peace work with manual peace work: a subsistence economy in solidarity with our fellow human beings, animals and nature.
Even in the winter time there is always something to be done - we always like to have helpers here! Hopefully soon we will be able to start working on one of our stable buildings, repairing the roof, building flats and a room for our archive.
We live in a small village with a lot of interesting people, an organic cattle ranch, an organic food store... There are lots of beautiful lakes around.

We try to live a culture of nonviolence - in respect for each other, our animals, plants, and the surrounding nature. Volunteers can learn about that way of live, including practical skills, e.g. gardening. While we do expect everybody to help with things like cleaning and cooking, we are otherwise pretty open to you own wishes and preferences- like working more in the garden or focusing on a crafts project.
Participation in the daily work in house and garden. Also there is always something to fix or build in the house or stables.

We have a cozy attic, insulated and clean, where volunteers can sleep. Also there are two guest rooms available, however if we have elderly guests or guests with small children who need those rooms, other guests/helpers might be asked to move into the attic.
It takes about 2,5 h to get here from the centre of Berlin by public transport (train and bus). We live in a beautiful area with lots of lakes, and good opportunities for cycling (you can borrow a bicylce from us), hiking or horse riding. You can get lessons in horse riding in our village. Our village is between four small towns (Rheinsberg, Neuruppin, Mirow, Wittstock) which are between 10 and 25 km away.
