    Description

    Welcome!

    We are a lively family (45, 45) with 4 children (6, 8, 8, 18) and appreciate life surrounded by forests, meadows and forests in the south of Germany (Hohenlohe, Tauber Valley, near Rothenburg o. D. Tauber). We live on a small farm, idyllically outside the village, together with numerous animals.
    We have horses, ponies and 1 foal which we take care of and take out every day. We also have a Dalmatian dog, 4 cats, 10 chickens, bees and 2 ducks.
    We like to spend time in the garden and cultivate plants and take care of the vegetable patches. The yard is surrounded by a beautiful, large garden with fruittrees and bushes and idyllic places to linger.
    There is often a lot to do with us, although there are also many calm and relaxed phases.

    Our garden invites you to meditate, make music, read or simply to be and enjoy nature.
    It is a wonderful place to be in contact with yourself, but also to meet people in a family.
    We have a fire place to cook outside, trampoline, bicycles, juggling equipment, musical instruments.
    20 kilometers away is the world-famous middleage-city "Rothenburg o.d. Tauber", a medieval property that inspires people from all over the world.

    We like to spend time in nature and doing different projects.
    This can be a spiral of herbs or a clay oven, a hut in the garden for the children, etc.
    Also larger projects such as currently the implementation of a painting room according to Arno Stern and the implementation of nature educational offers, as well as a singing group or the redesign of the pond.Wwe would also like to build a sweat lodge.

    We are vegan and mostly organic. The shamanic way to protect and respect the earth shapes our everyday life, there are also fire ceremonies in which you are welcome to participate. We are religious-free and everyone is welcome. It is freshly cooked once a day.

    We are just starting out with Workaway-people, so this is a process we have to grow into, so patience and forbearance is important for everyone.
    We would be happy if you want share your joyful passion with us like Music, Singing, Meditation, Yoga, Juggling …

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We're into communication, bringing up our children with focus on real relationships and with alternate education-models. The kids visit a alternate school, and it is important for us all, to respect each other.
    We are interested to create an invironment of respect and dignity of every human being.

    On our little "farm" we keep building and tinkering with projects where you can bring your manual skills to the table. No previous experience is necessary, a lot can be learned. The inner attitude towards it is important. You can learn the German language. We speak fluent german and romanian and can converse quite well in english.

    Alwin is a passionate handpan player, does sound meditations and if you like you can try it out and learn. Andrea loves to cook vegan, knows about raw vegetables and holistic nutrition. They are self-taught persons. Both are Trauma- and Naturepedagogues, psychological adviser with the background of education, elderly care and spiritual practice.

    So if you are interested in personal development, awareness and humanity, we'd like to meet you.
