    FOOD:
    NOTICE:
    We currently have 1 or 2 spots open for skilled Core-Group helpers ( management , administration and working 5 hours a day ( food included) and 4 spots for 3 hours a day community helpers ( no food included, so your responsible for your own food since at this moment we sadly are still just launching the project so we can not afford to carry the responsibility to feed everyone at the moment until things get more self sustainable.
    If your an amazing chef we would love to speak with you about mentoring up local families and teach them some new international dishes so they can learn to cook food from your country and join our Co-op style restaurant venture.
    If you are able to bake german and European bakery goods, we have access to a professional wood fire bakery oven and facility and would love to explore the possibility of you teaching local youth the tricks of the trade, since European bread would really be a great thing here since more and more people visit and miss a good European baked goods.
