  • 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 we are rising up a self-sustaining ecological agriculture in the surrounding garden. We use permaculture and old methods of farming and it is a learning project. At the moment we as a family - Jan, Anna, Isalie and Joshua 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 4 month.
