  • Description


    we are a young family community in the north of switzerland. we experiment in common trust on an economical, ecological, social and spiritual level. together we are looking for pioneering ways to sustainable forms of abundance.

    at the moment we are 8 'grown-up's and 1 babychild living in 2 beautiful clay/straw renovated old houses with a quiet big surrounding: tippy, veggygarden, trees, a small river... we are situated in the north of switzerland close to the border of germany. on the edge of a small village and next to an old monastery, the forest is not far away, and with our ebike you can take a dip into the river (rhine) in 10 mins. for cultural activities: the bus/train takes you to baden or zurich.

    as community we preferably meet twice a week for an organisational meeting and a community building time. the mornings we start with a morning circle with the people who are on site.

    we are a young community - we moved in here sept 2018 - and we are still in the process of understanding what is needed here and for us to ground and establish and create our common vision and live our individual potential.

    since april 2019 our wonderful guest ina did her magic in the garden. she put her knowledge into action about organic farming, permaculture, effective micro organisms, urine for plans, a wonderful compost, bokashi/terra-preta compost toilets, coal, ... and we savor the tasty efforts of collaboration of her and our garden

    as she, and amando and lisa (member's of the community, who also did know a lot about gardening) are going away from here, we are short in experience and performance to let our surrounding flourish.

    do you feel a yes for those questions? ...
    do you have some experience and a lot of love, drive, care for natural gardening, permaculture or organic farming, natural cycles?
    do you feel good taking responsibility for the garden and surrounding? (in consultation with our owner lukas and someone of the community)
    are you interested in experiencing a dip into a field of community living?
    ... feel invited to get in contact with us :)

    there are also other tasks that need care, in which you are welcome to join in if you love to:
    > food processing of what we harvest - fermenting, freezing, drying, baking a cake ;)
    > building a sauna or outdoor kitchen or clay oven or natural pond or living house or sandpit or ... or your idea?
    > we are passionate cookers and eating together often, you are welcome to subscribe to the cooking list
    > cleaning, rearranging, building furniture in our super nice wooden workshop
    > helping to organise and support the diversity of workshops, that are happening here
    > etc

    to jump into our field of community, it is important for us that you are able to communicate clearly what you need here in our everyday life and that you bring a good portion of humour and the willingness for inner processes.

    we have our basis of our meeting culture, decision-making process, conflict resolution, etc from the course:

    we cook every evening in rota for everybody and for lunch for the next day. organic, mostly vegan, super delicious.
