  • Description


    I just bought a garden in the outskirts of Frankfurt a.M., it was uncared for the last years. On the site is a house with 50 sqm, a pool, a bar, two fireflaces, and a lot of work :)
    who wants to help me building up a lovely place? The place should be self supporting one day, I know already a bit about gardening, permaculture and herbs, but any pro is welcome.
    I would love to welcome everybody you can handle a basic living and wants to see a place growing.
    It's also a nice community around, we party sometimes and you can reach the city center in 25 min.

    I want to set up, but first there won't be hot water and wifi (so only in emergency there is internet on my phone), water is only warm, when the sun heats the pipe... the house has a stove and a radiator for the colder month (not winter).

    And I'm vegetarian, so I don't want any meat in my place, but you can barbecue at the next garden sometimes or just anywhere else :)
    Minimum age of 25. I'm 38 and learned from other hosts here that it's more comfortable with the same age, but I will also give it a try, if it seems to fit, age is only a number :)

    I'm originally from munich, so 2019 will be my first summer in Frankfurt, I'm really excited about my garden and another place. I'm a traveling person and love to meet people from around the world. I'm an art historian, working only on the computer, so it's a great opportunity to stay in nature, live with nature, but the city with museums, party, etc is so close :)

    some more details: my neighbour has cats, in case of allergy.
    I don't have neither a car or drivers licence, so everybody with a car is superwelcome, then it's little work, just to drive me around :)

    max stay of 2 weeks
