  • Description


    This is a beautiful place nearby the baltic sea in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. In between 18 hectars of park and wood the almost 800 year old castle provides around 25 beds for guests, groups, schoolclasses and families. It is also a location for weddings and other events.

    In addition workshops in alternative agriculture, healthy living and other themes take place here. We started 4 years ago and our goal is to get self-sufficient with ecological agriculture. We use permaculture and old methods of farming. At the moment we as a family - Jan (44), Anna (38), Isalie (10) and Joshua (7) and our friends Kezia (31) and Sonja (47) run this project with all our heart.

    We are looking for workaways as solo, couple or group up to four. You are welcome to join our team! By the way... we are christians and follow Jesus Christ. Our food ist vegan or vegetarian, our lifestyle is based on eight principles: Air - sunlight - exercise - trust in God - water - rest - temperance - nutrition. Any helping hand is needed in the areas of gardening, general mantainance, housekeeping, babysitting, kitchen and animal-care. You will have a good time here - not only to learn the language but having insight in ecological agriculture and a fullfilling way of living!

    To plan projects we are looking for helpers that like to stay for a longer term up to 6 month.

    You will help at a wonderful place with planting and providing permanent agriculture on an ecological basis.
    Any kind of garden help is required. We make wood for the winter and deck it together.
    We also have two little shettland-ponys "Heidi" and "Sören". In the castle there is always work to do like cooking, kitchen help, housekeeping and renovation.

    Sometimes our little ones Isi, Joshua and Talita also need somebody who play and care for them.
    Help can also include general maintenance.
