    Good Host

 Min stay requested: at least a week

  • Description


    We have 12 cows, 2 cats, 21 ha of pasture lands, 12 ha of forests, permaculture gardens as big as anyone can imagine, we build a lot with clay and raw wood, there is only little comfort and nature is just magic here around, a river, forests, rocks, the sound of silence, nature. The goal is to transform this place into a holy place where transition to new society is experimented, researched, practised and shared. The project of now is that we try to learn to resist to any kind of pressure (stress, domination, feeling of guilt etc), to free ourselves from mental projection in order to get into our inner love flow. We need to step out of our brains into our bodies, from outside perception into inner awareness, but this is easy to say and hard to do, please come and help!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will walk out a different person than when you arrived. Resiliant lifestyle is not a childrens game. It needs a lot of skills to be able to honor one owns words. Intention is nice, but to do it is another thing. You need skills. These skills you don't learn either in school, in university nor in city life. You need to get out of the city and go into nature if nature is the thing you are interested in. Here we try to implement our good intentions without narrow-mindedness and stress to a large degree. You want to live? So let's go and walk the talk.

    Farm: Many different thing have to be done on a farm: fencing the cows, moving the grass, cutting and taking care of fire-wood, weeding the garden, putting up permaculture structures such as swails and key-lines. etc People interested in permaculture are specially invited to practice their skills.

    Construction: we are building right now a big yoga-center. there is a lot of wood work to be done thats why we appreciate workawayers with woodworking skills.

    House. This place is aiming to become kind of a magical place. This means that all rooms will be painted and sculptured with clay/straw structures. Artists and painters are encouraged to participate.

    Students are welcome to participate to establish a great water management plan for the farm. Designs need to be done, maps should be drawn and the official permission procedure need to be launched.

    Every kind of craftsmen is particularly welcome.

    We have a big house and there are many different options where to sleep. There are dormitories, little private spots and if you bring your own tent, there are plenty of tent sites all over the place. You don't need to bring along a mattress but if you do so you have more options, you can build a treehouse if you want. Bring your sleeping bag! If you don't have a sleeping bag, don't worry, we have enough bedlinen to keep you nice and cosy

We do not have mobile phone reception directly on the farm and we take great care to avoid any electrical pollution. That's why we only use cabled solutions. Internet is not provided by wifi but through ethernet cables. There are adaptors for most systems ( micro USB, USB C)
