  • Help


    Soon the snow is gone and we need help with planting & digging for the Veggies-Garden, Herb-Garden and Berry-Garden.
    The big snow damaged a lot of small buildings in our Garden which we want to repair or rebuild.
    Also we want to built a little Shelter for the wood near the "hot pot" - space.
    And on the Frontwall of our house we want to create a Banner with a Sign, so we need some creative minds:)
    Also we would like to make a website for our home "little siberia" but we are all not the big computerdeers;))

  • Accommodation


    We have two different sleeping opportunities:
    First we have a beautiful Guest-room with two very cozy Bed's with warm Blankets and fluffy Pillows. (In the winter-months the room is fresh, because it is not heatable well, but with warm bottles and the very warm Blankets it is cozy).

    Then for the Summer we have the optional sleeping opportunity in our Treehouse in the Garden, there is one Bed and it is almost open air, so you can observe the stars in the clear, warm Summer nights:)
