  • Description

    Description

    I am a single living, since near 25 years self-employed businesswoman, 43 years young, with currently 4 german shepherd dogs, 4 donkeys, 12 sheeps and 2 goats, all coming from animal welfare. From time to time these inhabitants change. Healthy ones are mediated in own at home and animals with continuous care spend their whole life with us. It is a bit like on the Bonanza Ranch in the evening; Good night Adam, Hanga, Mazly, Renate, Cezar, Ralf, Frank, Jörg, Bernd, Brain, Mercedes, Ida, Samson, Ada, Andreas, Debborah, Ziporra, Milka, Martha, Hulda, Josephine, Michel and Mütze.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I speak fluent English and can practice the language. We have a small garden where you can learn a lot about botany. The care and training of animals is a learning area and of course the consolidation of skills in the craft area. We can learn a lot about veterinary medicine and animal physiotherapy is also practiced. Leeches and manual therapy as well as cold pulsed red light.

    We have a foundation and are an approved animal shelter-like institution. In addition, we would like to become a refuge for alternative housing and are largely self-sufficient in our care. We need help with the maintenance of the property, the stables, fences and plants and with the renovation of an old community centre. We have a large driveway on which to stand campers and wish us animal-loving, technically gifted helpers who invest themselves in the heart project. The nature is wonderful around us and pure idyll. We live with dogs, sheep, goats and donkeys, close to 2 clear spring lakes at the southeastern edge of Berlin.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    In the garden there is a very small wooden house with a sofa bed and there is also a sofa bed in the office. In the yard there are 2 caravans, one of them has a bunk bed and the seat can become a couch. One has a double bed. We have an old house beside. There is no wallpaper on the wall in our outbuilding, because we just tore it down in June 2020, but in the next weeks the rooms there will be renovated. Independently of that there are 3 super sofa beds with a little bit of construction site charm. Otherwise you can park your camper in the driveway and use everything with us. Adjacent there are 2 camping sites with fixed bungalows. There you could also accommodate people for a while at our expense. Our cottage has 2 rooms, kitchen and bathroom, running hot water but there is no WLAN and you have to have at least a driving licence, we have the car. On the main yard there is WLAN for everyone and enough to do ;-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I am a believing Christian and would like to be prepared for economically strained times. A place of refuge. Self-sufficient with water, electricity and heating as well as vegetable food source. And space for community. The release of people into their calling is my heart. And, of course, the family members from the animal corner, who tend to be hairy. I have a giving heart and a stable income (unfortunately with limits), but we need a lot of effort until everything is finished and the ManPower is irreplaceable.
