  • Description


    Das Projekt für und mit der Natur.

    the project for and with nature.

    Breaking out of everyday life in Switzerland, living in community with and in nature, that has been my dream for a long time. So I broke up my tents in Switzerland, left everything behind and went traveling for an indefinite period of time. I wanted to see and experience more of the world. And I wanted to find the place where I can realize my dream. My name is Nina and together we are Jolanda, Nina and Samuel a family and a small 3-generation community that is happy to grow. We have found the place for our new home in the Sierra Nevada of Colombia and now we want to start a different way of life.

    Aus dem Alltag in der Schweiz ausbrechen, in Gemeinschaft mit und in der Natur leben, dass war schon lange mein Traum. Also habe ich, meine Zelte in der Schweiz abgebrochen, alles zurückgelassen und bin auf unbestimmte Zeit auf Reisen gegangen. Ich wollte mehr von der Welt sehen und erfahren. Und ich wollte den Platz finden, wo ich meinen Traum realisieren kann. Mein Name ist Nina und zusammen sind wir Jolanda, Nina und Samuel eine Familie und kleine 3 Generationen-Gemeinschaft, die gerne noch wachsen darf. In der Sierra Nevada von Kolumbien haben wir den Ort für unser neues zu Hause gefunden und wollen nun eine andere Art zu leben beginnen.
