  • Description


    **Right now we are looking to gather a group of around 10 volunteers to get the last preparations done before winter!!**
    We want to create a strong group, so people who can stay for the whole time (mid of October til end of November)
    will get precedence over shorter stays.

    We are an Eco-Community in Bavaria, founded in 2016. We took over a former vacation village in the beautiful natural area close to the Czech border, which used to be "the end of the world" from both sides for decades.
    By our way of living we aim to contribute an important step towards a world, where all beings can live in peace, trust, freedom, joy and connectedness.
    Currently we are approx. 50 grownups of all ages, 15 children and are still open to new members.

    The Workcamp will be guided by three community members. You will be able to experience the forming of a group body through group processes, community building and process work. If you are interested in tools of community building, communication methods and tools of self reflection / awareness this might be a just the place for you.

    For October and November we are still looking for Workawayers, especially with skills/experience in building

    Autonomous supply of energy from renewable sources, reconstruction in accordance with biological building principles and the creative realization of community-oriented housing forms.
    Right now there is work to be done in renovating the main buildings as well as the bungalows and make them ready for winter. Other tasks where we appreciate your help are in the kitchen, in the garden, in housekeeping and with the preparation of the many events that are held here.

    For this camp we are looking for about 10 people, who can stay at least 3 weeks. The workcamp will be around 6 weeks long and people who can stay for the whole time will get precedence over shorter stays.

    We started the work camp in June 2017 and since then we have such a nice international helpers team, integrated in the whole community. Many people extended their stay longer than originally planned and some have even joined the community completely. We are happy and thankful about the good energy together and the work progress!

    You will receive 3 vegan organic meals a day and get your own room (if available) or shared accommodation. Camping or staying overnight in your own vehicle is also possible. All the necessities of life are in place (washing machine, internet, guest computer etc.)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You meet every day with the group for a common start and an evening round with conversation or other activities.
    New volunteers are invited to join every weekend (Friday-Sunday)
    We are looking for people who are able to get things done, have manual skills, enjoy working and living together with us. As we live in a community and want to give you this experience as well, an interest in processes around groups and individuals is a good thing to bring.
    To relax your tired bones after work we have a Sauna and a Jacuzzi at least once a week, and there are lakes nearby.
    We are a vegan community, but you are welcome to enjoy your own non-vegan food in the privacy of your room.
