  • Description


    We are a fresh and young group of about 8 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 natural 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.

  • Help


    Work defines itself through the skills of the individual being.
    We have a whole bunch of work from cooking, cleaning, gardening, preserving the infrastructure, reparing things to building sustainable little houses out of garbage, researching alternative ideas and organising events.
    Also its seen as something like compulsory to learn "tichu", google it!

  • Accommodation


    We are quite full, so our rooms are mostly occupied and we can just offer our 10-bed-dormitory, place for a tent or a spontaneous solution without guarantee.
    We have a magical source of food which fills itself up in the evening. We call it dumpster diving...
    Meals included. Mostly vegetarian.
