  • Description


    Hello! We are a young couple just starting our food forest farm, first to be self-sufficient and zero-waste; and then to have extra resources to share with the people in need. Manuel (the husband) has been volunteer on several permacultural farms from Asia, Europe to Africa for the last 20 years so he has moderate experience in the field to share. Besides that, we draw, play musical instruments and are happy to jam with people sometimes after work. We also speak different languages so can give you some practice time during your stay with us 😊. We are looking for passionate people who love the nature and love the beauty of freedom. It would be great that we connect and learn from each other! Thank you 😊

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    - language exchange: help in English, German, French, Japanese and Chinese for beginners.
    - cultural exchange through sharing life experience. We have been to many different countries so know a bit of the outside world.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone to help us 2 hours per day on the farm (taking care of animals, watering the vegetables garden, etc) in exchange for an accommodation + bio eggs and fruits from the farm. If you like to help us 3 hours per day, we will cover your food (vegetarian food) but we won't be able to cook for you all the time because we are pretty busy, but from time to time we would like to cook and eat together with you :)
