I want to enable you to experience a self-sufficient and sustainable living.
You can work under my guidance and learn or improve your skills and crafts.
Or you can do independently work on current projects and bring in your practical knowledge.
Fire wood and wood stems from the own forrest, must be sawed, chopped, split or the bark removed. Digging for example for the pond. Mixing the clay or plastering the straw walls. Laying new vegetable beds. And much more...
Wake up time is approximately at nine o'clock.
Working time 4-5 hours, in between times a lunchtime.
And a free afternoon/evening with possible collective activities, like a campfire.
You will have your own private room with a bed and access to a bath room and sanitary facilities.
I can offer you breakfast, dinner and a hot meal for lunch. If possible, we can cook alternately, or together. All garden fruits as a snack and if available fresh apple juice.
Day excursions to the Black Forest, lake Bodensee, old castle ruins or europe's biggest waterfall Rheinfall, are possible. We have some climbing outdoor areas and a climbing gym, not far away.
If needed, I can pick you up at the nearby train station, or the swiss airport in Zürich.
