    Description

    We are a young farm project in the Southern Black Forest. We are looking for someone to help us with setting up a new "mountain" garden (permaculture?), designing the website and advertising logo and everyday tasks such as repositioning fences for the goats + farm maintenance. The hay season is about to start, so we are happy about every helping hand we can get!


    We are: Jürgen (52y.) Simeon (34y.) Marina (36y.), Salome (6y.) and our lovely landlady Louise (granny).
    We want to combine agriculture and social work / health practice.
    We have goats, horses, highland cows, chicken and cats.
    The "Klusenhof" is located in the heart of the southern Black Forest in a large clearing. The farm is surrounded by wonderful nature, forest, meadows and streams. It is a quiet place without mobile phone connection and it takes 10 min by car reaching the next town.
    Our goal is to preserve biodiversity in the valley and to share it with other people.
    This is supposed to be a place to live, learn and recover.
    After work we enjoy living at this place with barbecue and good german beer. And we like to have good conversation beside the fireplace.
    Normaly we prepare one or two meals together and in other times the kitchen is open so you can be self-organized.
    If you need specifically food (vegetarian,vegan or gluten free) please conatact us and we look how to manage.

    We are looking for someone to help us with setting up a new mountain garden (permaculture?), designing the website and advertising logo and everyday tasks such as repositioning fences for the goats + farm maintenance. Soon the hay season will start and we are more than happy about every helping hand.
    We need motivated people; strong and fit, with a good work ethic and who enjoy team work.
    Sometimes farm work is hard body work.
    Built up our project at the farm means a lot of work, so we prefer people working self- reponsible and with experience in one of the task we need.

    Accommodation

    In the time you live with us, you have our beautifully self constructed Tiny House trailer with two beds.
    If you come as a couple you can use it together, if you come by your own you maybe have to share it.
    In summer the kitchen is outside and we share the bathroom in the house.
    A other opportunity is to sleep in a tent in the wounderful mountain garden near the house.
    Couples / travelers or small families are welcome.
