A new venture, a little farm in semi rural setting with my family ( to be exact: right now since March 18 just one goat, cat & 8 year old wonderful dog , possible expansion of kinds: chicks & horse soon ).
"Wonnigste (warm/hearty) atmosphere with goats at dawn & night-time - so peaceful after a long day." A first time visitor said rightly, when remembering his youth ...
Just moved to this place in a quiet spot of a village, 5 km bike-ride (or longer journey by public transport, weekdays approx hourly) on a rarely used country lane to the Arendsee, just of the eastern side of the former inner German border.
Great and mystical spots for discovery or fotografie. This village & area has attracted lots of alternative folk of nuclear resistance, travellers & has numerous projects & parties.
Maybe with the extra help there is also time here to exchange some skills, make smudge stix from my extensive herbs for example, learn about permaculture, healing, spirit, union=yoga & the use of almost any plant ... I welcome independent travellers with a bed on wheels - but make exceptions in the house.
Should you check out Arendsee you will find gustaf nagel's sites, gardens / temple & home by the lake & mansize bronze-sculptures on the main-street (called: Friedensstrasse, translates: Peace AV! ) of this once upon a time famous healer, vegetarian & revolutionist , for walking barefoot & simple language for example, hence the spelling of his name.
I travelled abroad, lived & learned first hand most of my adulthood, 30 + years, about biodiversity, self-sufficiency & well-being, know many kinds of green communities, lived in Tipis was educated & educate via greater & smaller alternative orgs, always aware of the necessity of individualism, anti-manipulation. Live & let LIve ( BE PEACE ), my slogans on the 3 German exhibitions + workshops I did.
I could do with a strong practical individual to assist with manual labour, however mainly wood, fencing, carrying & occasional above the head jobs - as my spinal injuries make this difficult... There is always outdoor - work as well as there are the permaculture-gardens, some indoor & the animals...... Harvest at harvest time mainly in September, making juice & other lasting foods & medicines in the following months. Someone with plumbing, building, electric, oven-building or mechanical abilities or to help me prepare & paint my VW T3 could also have something to do while here.
Yoga & exercises or just resting on the ground is part of my life. Also resting vocals & mind.
My diet is primarily organic vegetarian, bordering vegan. I mainly bake my own bread mainly from less common flours.
Abroad I was a musician & reg. alternative Therapist for winged, underwater & 2 & 4-legged Beings. This is just part of life now.
I am a member of New Earth Nation (started reg. also as Horsedrawn Central Europe ) & The International Tribunal for Natural Justice ( I.T.N.J. )
No elderly care, just the knowledge, that due to spinal injuries, I cant carry too often / early in the day other than the daily wood & water for the goats & maybe garden.
Right now am striving to set up my own little farmproject with future art & sound-studio to achieve full sovereignity. As long planed, a authentic more native retreat for likeminded & musicans. For this I need to find the right help, investor or sponsors.
My life_style has the luxury of nature & well-being & knowing some wonderful people & other musicians. I have much to share, travelled + lived international alternative lifestyles for 30 + years (68er generation). The transport is priority & necessity to make it possible. Im no Biz, nor does the bureaucracy here allow me to use any milk commercially (workaway questioned this).
Working hours can be a lot less should you just need a park-up...
I hope to attract 2-legged of a similar attitude & respect, consideration & responsibility: NATURE ABOVE ALL. LIFE IS PRECIOUS & BEAUTIFUL.
I would Love to meet more people from other parts of culture & NATIVES with a natural sense of responsibility, reliability & respect for ALL LIFE.
Happy to assist or answer questions. Just ask beforehand... I do want some communication rather BEFORE anyway. So everyone knows where we are at & work & life can be joy / being with it, here & now.

Humanity. Equality of all life & living things.
... All the above & more. There are numerous communities in & around the area... (7Linden, Traumschule Riebau, Nutztierarche...) - as there are in the village.
Organic farms that swap gardening - work for plants / veggies... Beautiful & ancient countryside, a walk, short bike-rides like the Arendsee & the green-band (Nature-reservoir where once was the inner German border).
Boat-hire & some watersports, incl. swimming are possible on the Arendsee ( 5 km by bike to the lake, Town 7-9 km, Supermarkets, Library, Restaurants, Fuel...).
Not very far are interesting set ups, like Sieben Linden, who offer numerous possibilities to learn old crafts for example.
- Coasts & isles, Harz -Mountains, Seenplatten (Masses of lakes...) around 1 to 2 hours by car, lots of old countryside, old pebble Streets somewhere in most villages & towns in the former east .
Or the Externsteine 2-3 hours. Some local Parties & festies. Hamburg & Berlin offer more cultural sites & events ( around 2 hours by car, sometimes more by train, Hamburg often less, around 1 hour ).
Should you check out Arendsee you will find Gustaf Nagel's sites, gardens/temple & former home by the lake & mansize bronze-sculptures on the main-street (called: Friedensstrasse, translates: Peace AV! ) of this once upon a time famous healer, vegetarian & revolutionist for a simpler, healthier life & language...
German or English communication fine (taught English to children for 2 years), having communicated mainly in English the past 30 years.
Freedom & Self-sufficiency in steps... /Self-realisation. Peace. Harmony. Happiness.
Just enjoy the beautiful setting, sunrise & sunset-views. Arendsee & extensive forrests & nature reserves are all around.
I am a member of New Earth Nation (started reg. also as Horsedrawn Central Europe ) & The International Tribunal of Natural Justice ( I.T.N.J. ).
Just ask beforehand... I do want some communication rather BEFORE anyway. So everyone knows where we are at & work & life can be joy / being with it, here & now. While working I concentrate on the matters - questions I do answer, explain... - however long chats are for mealtimes, breakes or evenings...
Be part of a new venture.
Indoors & outdoors there is plenty to do - depending on seasons & progress...
Cleaning after ourselves & general duties like washing up should be the responsibility of all present users & not part of working hours. One cooks the other one washes up kinda-thing...
At times I could do with a strong practical individual to assist with manual labour, however mainly wood, fencing, carrying & occasional above the head jobs - as my spinal injuries make this difficult... There is always outdoor - work as well, some indoor & the animals...... Harvest at harvest time mainly in September, making juice & other lasting foods & medicines as well as winter preparations in the following autumn months - Fall.
Someone with plumbing, building, electric, oven-building or mechanical abilities or to help me prepare & paint my VW T3 could also have something to do while here.

For now this is more a place for people with a mobile home.

Internet is finally working - but please use your own equipment - other than for booking tickets, planing your journey...
-A bike, 26 frame, can be borrowed for short/day trips.
-I will fetch & bring you to the bus if needed & when time other places....
-Most days simple cooking for now & more cold dishes in the summer - sometimes Self-service - Hot healthy food with homegrown veggies & more energy-cakes in the winter. My diet is primarily organic vegetarian. I mainly bake/d my own bread mainly from less common flours - but provide a larger choice of bread & flour & foods from shops .
- Please use our soaps, should yours not be a 100% clean...
-A small tent can be borrowed.
- Good water is rare. Use with care.
On the other side of the farm & gardens lives a very special person. Do not enter nor approach (unless you are approached). There are clear boundaries.
How long your stay will be is also depending on the compatibility & there are other places nearby I would than recommend & help you with - for example for extreme punx or very loud, less caring folk - animals don't like unusual noise / energie.
Arendsee (-Town. SEE, meaning Lake & the ArendSEE ) has 3 Supermarkets, numerous shops & restaurants & good public Transport. Gustaf nagel (Healer, Vegetarian, Reformist) was a former resident in Arendsee & there are several sights & places to walk in his footsteps... The local area can be explored by foot, boat or bike.
Right here deer, foxes, racoons, Birds of prey... - & my goats. I recently saw a wolf twice at the GreenBand (former inner-german border ) - they travel at dusk & dawn from forest to forest keeping great distance from so-called civilisation - like a shadow-arrow.
