  • Description


    We are a fresh and young group of about 10 members who tries to establish an alternative way of living, trough working together, building individual mobil recycled homes and practice alternative and sustainable concepts and act locally.

    We connect working, living and free-time in our 1000m2 space.
    We have workshops for wood, metal and dressmaking. There we build our mobil tiny homes, as much as possible out of second-hand material, and also work self-employed in our professions.
    In our free-time we take care of our garden and our chickens in a more and more permacultural way, make parties, occasions and workshops, make music on our open stage, debate about important and unimportant things and experiment what ever comes in our minds.

    We all live in 10 - 20m2 privat spaces and share the rest with everyone. Our long-term dream is to find a place near nature where we can grow and shape in joy and harmony.
