a cozy community project in the countryside South of Berlin. It's a lively place where we experiment with sustainable and self-determined opportunities for living and working, embedded in a nurturing community of five people (age 23 to 31).
On our grounds we organise non-commercial seminars for community building and alternative living, open the doors once a month for a neighbourhood repair café and are setting up a permaculture forest garden.
(Most conversations in daily life are in german, it would be better for feeling good here if you speak basic german.)

project where different cultural elements meet: In our daily life and the management of our projects, we combine elements of non-violent communication, sociocracy, concepts of degrowth and permaculture.
In general, you can learn a lot about hands-on self-organisation, sustainable living and project management. This ranges from facilitation and communication techniques to ecological construction works and gardening.
Spiced with a dose of critique of capitalism.
- renovation works (loam rendering, floor burnishing, constructing furniture, lots of other things)
- housekeeping (cooking, food conservation, cleaning)
- gardening (planting, weeding, designing, landscaping)
During summer: camping in our forest garden or sleep on one of our mattresses in the cozy straw barn
During winter: we'll find some space for a mattress in the house
