  • Description

    Description

    This is a beautiful place on the landscape of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. In between 18 hectars of park and wood the almost 800 year old castle provides around 30 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 5 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 (45), Anna (39), Isalie (11) and Joshua (8) and some Co-Living and Co-working people run this project with all our heart.

    We are looking for workaways as solo, couple or group up to four. By the way... we are christians. So we invite you to join us for a little bible-reading and praying in the morning and talking about the day. Any helping hand is needed in the areas of gardening, general maintenance, 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 can be by the baltic sea with it`s nice white sandy beach within 45 minutes by car. Maybe you`ll find the deeper meaning of living here? It is a free offer and up to your mind to take part in spiritual themes or prayers.

  • Help

    Help

    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 also need somebody who play and care for them.
    Help can also include general maintenance.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Within 45 minutes by car you will be at the baltic ocean beaches. The cities of Rostock and Stralsund are also about 45 minutes by car away, Greifswald 25 minutes. There is the museum of marine science in Stralsund, a big bird-park in Marlow or famous tourist areas on the island of Rügen or Fischland-Darß-Zingst. The nearest city with shopping facilities is Grimmen about 12 km from our place. There rarely goes a bus so you can go with us by car or using your own car. The next train station is Rakow or Grimmen.

    we have Internet access, limited because of the rural area and limited data volume. We have animals and pets.
