  • Description


    ! In diesem Moment bauen wir an einem großen Abschnitt Lehmdämmung und freuen uns über jede Hilfe !
    ! In this moment, Aug 2022, we are doing a clay wall and we are really happy about every help !

    We, 3 persons, live here in a little paradies of nature and we work for it, that it gets more and more. With us are living 3 other persons in wagons. We got 2 pigs, some chicken,one princess cat and a funny dog. It is an old house and we work a lot with loam, clue, what we put out of the garden.

    One of the projects is the herbal garden and a little tree-nursery. The main projekt is, to make this place to a home for a lot of wild animals and different plants. A vegetable-garden of which we can live about , is one of my dreams too.
    The second main projekt is the house, slowly we make more space inside.
    -We put Solar on the roof.
    -We will insulate a part of the house with straw and loam, this is july-august
    -We would like to repair one of the smaller roofs, to have a good place for repairing bikes and doing sport in the winter as well.

    Here, we can do something the most of the time: Making birds houses, plant trees, Building with loam, wood or stone, cooking every day for good food , gardening, clean the animals-houses (and our house), repairing machines or tools, to safe thinks, getting the fruits and doing some jam, repairing roofs or anything. In Autumn we are making apple-juice . This we do for us and for money as well.
    2021 was the project to make a little lake. It is made from the loam we found here . One really nice artist and workawayer finished to put the loam in. The next step would be to press the loam, that it holds the water.
    2022 I startet too late and the bees already lived in. So...this projekt finish later in the year, first we need a loam-house for the bees : )
    This is a pilot project. When the little one works, we can try a lake in this way. That would be the greatest in this dry area!
    If you come here and it works together we will have some good actions !!!

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Culture ,I think we got. We try to make some music, we like good food, we like listen to stories and talk.
    I like to go dancing sometimes or to see a concert.
    Around are some art projects, like "Künstlerstadt Kalbe " or Wagen und Winnen or KLP.
    Interesting is, that here are living some more people, who try to organize life in different ways as usual

    I also do some ear-acupuncture and stuff like this. If you indicate interest in natural healing ways , please ask for it.

    You live in a room or a wagon. You will have it warm in the winter . You got everything you need, but no luxury, it is simply.
    Now there is a big kitchen , since 2020/2021.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    this is still the east side of germany. Salzwedel is a bit empty, but a very nice little city. In the countryside you are away from everything like shopping center etc. Everywhere around live some nice people who try alternative live. We got a wagonplace with pub and a petrol station in this village. What you will look, depends what you prefer... In Stendal there is a good theater.
    And there is "Künstlerstadt Kalbe", what is like a city art project.
    Next village is a sharing electro-car. My car is possible to use as well (after I saw how you are driving...)
    I've got some guest-bikes too.

    Say what you want and need , take care for yourself. When you do this, it is more easy.
    We like it open minded and ecological, we do not like poison and Nazis !
