    Description

    Hey there I am Holger living on an old Farm near Berlin,
    I am as much self sufficient as I can means I have Solar Panels, heating with wood in winter, I repair the cars on my own, growing vegetables and fruits in the garden without any chemicals, I refurbish and restore the house inside and outside to make it stable again, its a three corner house- old farm from the 1800, I usually go in the forest to pick mushrooms and herbs to eat, have some fruit trees.
    I am a traveler and want either to support other traveler to give them a roof over their head and I need some help for our gardening and construction work, I can teach everything what has to do with garden, animal, building and being self sufficient. I have a big fire space in our big garden, bicycles and lot more to offer.

    On my farm there will be help needed to plant trees, seedlings, berries and veggies. Another project will be to restore and renovate the old farm house.To do so I am happy to teach all the needed handy man skills to everyone willing to learn and to try like painting, plastering and sanding. Even repairing cars can be a skill to learn.

    There is plenty of food around mostly fresh from the garden with berries and fruits. Normally the day starts with a beautiful and strengthening breakfast, followed by a classic german Kaffee and Kuchen in the afternoon. In the evening there will be a big dinner waiting for everyone after an exciting day.
