  • Description


    Dear volunteer,
    We are two sisters who moved from Portugal to Germany in late 2017 to work and we liked Germany so much that we decided to buy a house in one picturesque village, in the margins of Mosel River, called Brauneberg.

    We are looking for friendly people to share ideas and experiences to promote a lifestyle in harmony with nature and to help us with house and garden maintenece, cooking, language practice, etc.
    We really like to share knowledge and experiences because we believe that is the best way to learn and to stay connected with other people.

    We are pleased to teach about:

    Cooking (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free);
    Ferments and sprouts;
    Cultivation of mushrooms;
    Organic gardening;
    Natural dyeing;
    Natural cosmetics and ecological detergents;
    Reuse of materials;
    Portuguese teaching;

    We would like to learn more about:

    Biointensive agriculture and biofertilization;
    Self-construction and eco-construction;
    Renewable energy;
    Holistic therapies (including yoga and meditation);
    Graphic design;
    German Language;
    And much more...

    We hope to see you soon!

    Our village is surrounded by gorgeous vineyards and forests, so walking or cycling along the river there is always a pleasurable experience.
    There are also some activities that you can do alone or in our company like climbing, visiting other wine villages on the banks of the Mosel river or the nearest cities: Cologne, Bonn, Trier (the oldest city in Germany!).
