  • Description

    Description

    We are a generations commune of of about 25 people (50% kids) who live together since 2012. We have a 13.000 square meters yard and a huge house that we are constantly improving and renovating in a more ecological way.

    We work and live with the ideal of sustainability, permaculture, humanity, vegetarism and respect. We want to contribute to the humankinds's progress towards more conscious communication, heartful living, sustainable ecology and a responsable economy. We all want to create a loveful environment for our children and everybody else to live up to our full potential and peaceful living.
    We regularly have people interested in commune life as visitors, helping hands and we host seminars and concerts. We love to share what we created here and love to learn and listen to the stories of visitors from around the world. In decisionmaking and internal communication we trust methods like consensus or nonviolent communication.

    What else ...

    Our place is at the countryside close to a forest. If you need some time off from city life and enjoy spending time in a big natural garden, you are probably right here. For nightlife you will have to go to the next city, at least 15 km. Frankfurt is 90 km away and Cologne around 120.
