    ! Invitation for Spring Garden Community Week !
    13. 4. – 18. 4. 2020
    In this week we invite you to come for a special week in the garden. We will activate the vegtable garden, do our spring clear up in the garden areas and finish building the garden house. Depending on the people coming, we like to establish a meditation space in our wild garden and build composting toilets.
    Inbetween the activities we will have plenty of community experience, music, fire, good food and lazy times in the sun.
    You can sleep in the main room or in the garden (caravan or tent).

    Please contact us to talk about the current situation with community restrictions.

    We are a Community project in the town of Witzenhausen, right in the middle of Germany. Our work is centered around healing sounds.
    Johannes, who built up this place, developed a special kind of Sound Massage using Monochord instruments and we also hold courses to pass on this technique.
    Chris is Project manager and you will communicate with him.

    Our daily chores are. widely spread. We have an instrument building startup that developed from the community. We are creating monochords, drums, flutes and more in the wood workshop. We plan a variety of courses on the weekends, based on sound massage, mindfullness, art and craft and music workshops, as well as all kinds of healing work. The focus on that grew rappidly in the last two years and we have sessions from community members and with people we invite.

    In the summer months, we tour around festivals with our sound-tent. Of course, this will needs a lot of organizing beforehand, so you can also find us sitting in front of the computer for some time each day, organizing, advertising, updating the website... if you're interested in event managing or marketing, there's also a role for you.

    In the nearby garden we grow vegtables, care for fruit trees and like to make fire or just relax. We have opportunities to stay in a caravan or tent and soon we will put up a teepee. There is also construction projects to do. We are building a house that we will use as an outside kitchen and bathroom facility.
    We dont have a lot of living space, so most people involved have their flat nearby and spend a lot of time here. Some are living in the garden in summer time. Over all, we are between 8 and 14 people here, including little Daniel who is 1 year old.

    Our center is placed in the part of a big building on the outskirts of Witzenhausen. We have a big common room with kitchen corner and a broad open space for different courses and jam sessions. The walls are stacked with instruments of all kinds, that may be used at any time.
    In the next room you find our well equipped wood workshop, surrounded by guest a guest room, office and a room for sound treatment.
    In front of the building there as a little outside area and our big tower of sound, (with the most amazing acustic effect) where we also like to have jam sessions.

    In our community life, our most important aims are to connect with each other truthfully and in a loving way. We want to support and reflect one another and spread a loving and lightfull atmosphere through our work. We invite you from our heart to practice with us!

    If you want to come by, please tell us what kind of help interests you most (gardening, instrument building, cooking, housekeeping, childcare, office work, construction building, community building) or if you want to participate in what ever is going on at the moment (which will be a lot!). Then we can arrange a good experience for you, and see if we can support you in this activity at the moment.
    If you have skills you like to share with the community, please tell us about it! Everyone brings in their skills and talents and together we create what will come into life.

    On request, you can also participate in the courses happening here. You can explore the beautiful land and the many activities in Witzenhausen, a small town with a big ecological and cultural movement, thanks to the oldest University for organic farming of Germany, which happens to be here.

    We need flexible people who can help and serve to learn and exchange knowledge and skills.

    Feel free to contact us for any questions. Hope to see you soon!
    We'd love to come in contact with you personally via Skype, discord, Telegram or Phonecall to speak about your stay.
