There are some accomodation like Birgits "rolling home", caravans and a willowtreehouse.

    Hallo,
    Lust auf Kost und Logie auf dem Lande mitten in einer üppigen Landschaft am Rand des Müritz Nationalpark in der Mecklenburger Seenlandschaft?
    Wir (2 Erwachsene mit drei Kindern (11j. 8J und 6J) und unserer "Adotivgroßmutter" Birgit im Bauwagen (macht Aikiko und Tai chi)leben in einem kleinen Dorf in der Nähe von Waren an der Müritz (nächste Bahnstationen sind in Waren/Müritz oder Neustrelitz) und haben dort ein Grundstück, was wir seit 7 Jahren renaturieren und unser eigenes Gemüse anbauen. In unserem Dorf wohnen viele alternative, bunte Leute, wo es immer was neues zu entdecken gibt. Ein kühles Getränk gibt es im Dorfkiosk auf jeden Fall immer!

    Wir haben immer verschiedene Projekte und Arbeitsbereiche wie Bau eines Holzblockhauses, Bau eines Gewächshauses, Gartenhauses, Bau von Gartenbänken, Kompostklo,Draußendusche, Bewirtschaftung unseres Obst- und Gemüsegartens, weitere Bearbeitung unseres Weidenhauses, Bau eines Erdkellers Wer länger bleiben will oder mehr arbeiten will für vereinbartes Entgeld, ist auch kein Problem.

    Wer hat Lust mit uns für einige Wochen zusammen zu leben und eigenständig mitzuarbeiten und eigene Ideen umzusetzen, ist herzlich willkommen .
    Im Arbeitsbereich Bau des Holzblockhaus ist Erfahrung im Umgang mit Holz und den entsprechenden Arbeitsgeräten (Säge!) unabdingbar.
    Wir bieten einfache und saubere Unterkünfte in Wohnwägen, im Weidenhaus oder auch mitgebrachten Zelten. Es gibt ein Kompostklo und eine Draußendusche soll noch entstehen. Einstweilen gibt es Wasserhähne auf dem Grundstück. Eine Waschmaschine zur freien Benutzung etc. Internet gibt es auch!
    Wir bieten gutes Essen (frisches BIO Gemüse aus dem Garten, Biologische Lebensmittel etc), was ihr in den Wohnwägen selbst zubereiten könnt. Dann und wann koche ich auch gern für Alle.

    Freue mich über Anfragen!
    Andrea
