  • Description


    We are a family of four, Anne, Thomas and the children Tilda (9) and Linus
    (7). We live in a house with a big garden close to potsdam with lots of
    lakes and forest around. Our village itself is not very interesting but Potsdam with its famous palaces and gardens is very close.

    This year we will have several projects in our garden.

    Short term enquiries are welcome, as we do not plan too far.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn a lot about ecological buliding materials and paints, about self-sufficient living/ gardening, simple living close to nature, using wild herbs. Some might also be interested in our music collection (a wide range of indie, pop, electronic, rock etc.). Attachment parenting, natural family life.

    You can also learn to sew.

  • Help


    IN GENERAL: help with the daily chores, cooking, cleaning the table after eating should be self-evident. also it s very important that you are able to work independently. quite often we have several small jobs to be done around the house, therefore it s necessary that you will be able to do it alone after a short introduction.

    Teaching: If you play guitar or ukulele....we have some basic knowledge but would like to learn more.

    If you re good with IT things/ web design, we also have something for you to do.

  • Accommodation


    we can offer our camper van, the caravan, or you can sleep in a tent in the garden. No heating available in the campers, so season for accomodating volunteers outside is from around april to september, depending on the weather and your condition. We can offer sleeping place in our work room in the house in march if you re interested in coming earlier, but we also have to use this room.
