  • Description

    Description

    We are the first veggie cooperative in the region of Berlin and Brandenburg. We grow our food all organic and plant-based. Located in the city Frankfurt (Oder), only 1,5 hours from Berlin, we connect the country-side and the country's capital. You will have the chance to grow with us and experience the whole project from the very beginning.
    Our cooperative started as a intiative of consumers being unhappy with the way their food is being produced. We want fresh and locally-grown vegetables without the suffer of any animals, but as much biodiversity as possible. Instead of getting frustrated we wanted to do something about it. Today we are a strong community working together for the same goal. We are super excited to see how our idea becomes reality and invite you to join us on this journey.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Join us, if you want to learn more about gardening, community building and vegan healthy food. You will be connected with our lovely members from Berlin and Brandenburg and can meet new people and friends.
    You will receive free accomodation and fresh vegetable and fruit from our farm. You will be supplied with all basic cooking needs. You will be provided with food for three full meals a day. (Breakfast with whatever you want, a rich Picknick on the field, and a dinner, cooked together)

    Gardening is a great body workout ;) You can spend much time outside and connect with nature and learn where our food comes from and how it grows.

    Help

    On a farm, there is a lot to do like planting, weeding and harvesting. The tasks can be very diverse. No gardening experience is necessary, as we are happy to introduce you to the tasks and share our knowledge with you.

    At our community farm we are a team of six. We have three experienced and passionate gardeners (Fred, Timo and Marie) and a one-year intern (Simon) - our carrot manager, how we also call him. Freddy and Judith are the founders of the farm, and plan and organise a lot, while also helping in the field as often as possible. Sometimes there are friends and members of the community coming to volunteer. Every second saturday in a month we have a community gardening day, where friends and neighbours are invited to garden with us and get to know the farm and environment.
    Everyone here will be happy to get to know you and welcome you on the farm.

    Accommodation

    Our gardeners-apartment lays only a few hundred meters away from the farm. You will share a room with one other volunteer or the friend you are travelling with. Also Freddy and me will be staying in the apartment during the week. It is fully furnished and freshly renovated. We have a balcony and a living room to spend time together.
    All the food is provided and in the evening we cook together vegan meals with the fresh harvested veggies. During the day we have a picknick at the field.

    There is a tram station right next to our farm to go to Frankfurt (Oder), the next bigger city. You can also go there easily by bike, as it is only 5km away. Berlin is very easy to reach by train too whithin 1.5 hours.
    We are vegan-friendly!!! :)
