Hello people from all over the world! :)
In early springtime we will start working on our project again, which means: creating a little field and greenhouse for growing vegetables, making lots of firewood, refresh the place and maybe turning our pont into a swimming pool...
For this time we hope to find some travellers who can help us with the kick-off of our project and to have a wonderful time together with fire in the evening, time to connect, to eat together, make music and just have a great time. But if you are available earlier, please don't hesitate to apply anyway! In winter we generally keep much more to ourselves, but we still need all the help we can get.
The project site is an old military base close to 49419 Wagenfeld
Since december 2016 we have this beautiful land on lease. The site is located close to the Oppenweher moor, a protected natural reserve that has some nice trails for a day-hike.
Special about the location is the smooth land-transition into the moor, and the existing infrastructure plus the long history create a zone of silence and peace on which we created the foundation of our project. Because of that, by now the spot has space for get-togethers, interesting conversations and exchange of knowledge and culture.
Attitude and values
We (Daniel 33 and neighbours) have a project in self-organization. Our focus is visionary and aims at the creation of permanent operation, sustainability and natural cycles.
It is based on the latest findings of ecological life forms. We take a special interest in creating an ecologically, economically and socially sustained environment with all resources at hand. Use, instead of taking advantage for the benefit of nature and all lifeforms.
Furthermore, we put special emphasis on sharing knowledge we already have and obtaining knowledge while working on this project together. But, we are also looking for people who are able to work independently and don't mind spending some time alone. Especially in winter, our home is a quiet place, ideal for people who seek some time to themselves, to settle down and unwind. Sometimes this takes some getting used to, and you will need to be capable of entertaining yourself to some degree.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions or else just contact us if you are interested in working at the project. We are looking forward to a good time together and getting to know interesting people! :)
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
You will learn a lot of different skills, like working with wood i.e. plus you will get a feeling how it is to live in a different way in real contact with nature.
You will see how fast it goes to create a new place to be and that it doesn´t cost a lot. This can give you a new feeling of safety. Also there is the possibility to learn how to train/ work with dogs and/or horses or even show us your skills! :)
Mainly the work is about making firewood, helping to grow our own vegetables, create a pond and a nice garden or even make didgeridoos ourselves :)
We also have other little jobs to do like prepairing the food, taking care of dogs, pigs, a cat (and maybe horses) and keeping everyone happy :)
Because of our jobs there will be times where you just cook for yourself and spend the evening with other volunteers or even alone if you like...
Couples are as much welcome as people who are traveling alone...it might be a little easier if you come in pairs...makes it simple with accommodation plus you are not all alone when we are at work or need to sleep early ;)
you will sleep in caravans with a gas heater and a small kitchen or in tents... We live at this place in a Yurt. All places have electricity. We have a tiny house bathroom with a hot shower and sauna.
As mentioned the surrounding area is very good for hiking and tracking. There is also a lake not far away which is interesting for summertime :) If you are interested in city-stuff, there are a few smaller ones around with cinemas and restaurants. We also have a very nice spot for partys around (and some random pub-thingys also)...
