  • Description


    I'm Imogen, 1959, my daughter, Franci, 1999 and her boyfriend Augustin 1998
    We are german, but live here since 1980.
    We live here with 2 horses, 2 dogs, 7 cats and chickens. Soon we will have bees again.
    There are hundreds of big old olivetrees, so that we produce a lot of excellent oliveoil.
    We rent the old farmhouse to summerguests, thats our main money entance.
    I'm a classic homeopath and love it.
    I'm also a yoga teacher but now I practice less.
    I'm overhelmed with work, the farm is too big for one person.
    We eat biological food, very rarely meat and fish. You can cook it, if you like.
    We have no clear organisation, we try to find the best solution for everybody and from case to case.
    I'm very interested in culture, literature, film, theater, art and music. There is a piano.
    I also participate at political activities here around.
    I like people who don't think only about themselves.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    they can learn a lot of tasks in nature, constructing, cooking and so on.
    They can participate at interesting discussions about art, literature, culture, psycology, social themes, politics.
    they can see how nice and warm it can be to speak onestly and directly with each other. They can live playfull and free, organize themselves, be resposible for themselves. Choose when and what to do. That sympathy and openess are as important as "hard work"
