  • Description

    Description

    We are a small community and we grow over 40 different kinds of fruits and veggies as well as herbs for our CSA (Community supported agriculture). Everything is organic. We have some Greenhouses with tomatoes and we know a lot about vegetable cultivation. Our life here is basic but we like the idea to have a little impact as possible. There is an apple garden where everyone stays in the summer with an outdoor kitchen and a fireplace. There are a great many building projects going on this summer. So except gardening, we are looking for people who would like to help us with that.
    Currently no one is living in the garden. The three gardeners are here for most of the week and some weekend days as well. From our community members in Freising and Munich people are coming around mostly on weekends to work in the fields or garden. Once a month we organize a bigger helpers day, usually the last weekend of each month. That's usually a good time to get to know us.

    Our place ist 60 km in the north of Munich. Please keep in mind, that we live in the garden and there is just cold water and no heating system. So come in the summer, if you get cold easily.
    In Germany there is a phrase: "Nur die harten kommen in den Garten" which means: Only the tough ones come into the garden ;)

    Of course we don't have any feedback yet because we are just starting. You can see many positive feedback on the profile of the project we where working on before:

    Sleeping
    Depending on the availability, the accommodation will be a caravan, a tipi, a small cabin or your own tent if you want to bring one with you. It's quite basic and you will be living outside almost all the time.
    It's good if you bring your own sleeping bag and mat, but it's not super neccessary.
    There is no washing mashine.

    If you wish to come by car please let us know in advance as we haven't many parking spaces

    Food
    We eat vegetarian and vegan food which is seasonal, regional and organic wholefood. Vegetables and wild foods are mostly from our own garden. We get extras like nuts, seeds, grain and legumes from a food cooperative in Munich, and from local organic farms.

    Hygiene
    There is cold running water in the Summer
    We use a simple compost toilet.

    Fun and Games, activities
    We welcome all musical instruments. We have bicycles so you can do small trips around in your free time. There are forests nearby and we find mushrooms sometimes.
