We, Hanna and Jörg (both 44) live on the countryside in a former brickyard area (3ha) and wake it for four years from its slumber. The brickyard, four outbuildings, stables, meadows, an orchard, a pond and fallow site belong to it. We want to live on a self-supporting base, energy-self-sufficiently (own well water, solar- and windenergy, organic toilett, biopile, oven) and economise with what has grown during the last years and clear up with which doesn't belong here. During the last three years we created a basis to live here, use the orchard, built up courses in yoga and started poultry breeding and permaculture. Hanna is somatic movement therapist and loves gardening and cooking. Jörg is craftsman and father. His daughters (10 & 8) are here from time to time.

Hanna was working as a volunteer about 20 years ago in London...her english is more or less fluent...she loves to get into the language again. Jörg speaks his school english very well by now (he had some good practise over the past 3 years).
we are open for people who love to work with their hands (BUT WE CAN NOT HOST CHILDREN), Jörg likes to share his knowledge about solar- and windenergy and Hanna loves to share her knowledge about herbs, processing fruits and vegetables,
we love simple, natural food, Hanna loves yoga, dance, massages, and silence from time to time to breath in and out, she likes to share massage hands on and yogapraxis, both love books or a good movie.
Hanna was living in Berlin and travelling and working around the world (Bolivia, Senegal, Indonesia, India); Jörg is down to earth, growing up in a neighbour village...but has seen Lissabon.
Hanna is giving courses in Yoga on mondays and thursdays. Jörg is working part time three days a week on another farm.
