  • Description


    We are a vegan organic community supported agriculture ( CSA) and grow about 50 different kinds of vegetables on our fields. The area where we grow vegetables is about 2hectars and there is also 1,5 hectar fruit tree plantation, mainly appletress. The rest of the area is mainly given to the wilderness.
    We have 4 foil tunnels, where we grow vegetables that need more warmth than the german summer can give them. We prepare our own seedlings, so you can experience the whole development process from the seed to the ripe plant.
    Every first saturday per month we have a community morning, where people come to join us on the field.

    You will have an appartment with one bedroom, one living room and a kitchen and bathroom, that you share during the day with the gardeners and maybe also with another workawayer.
    We provide three meals a day, during the week we gonna eat brakfast and lunch together, only the dinner you have to prepare on your own. Everyday somebody else is preparing the lunch, so if you like cooking, we would be happy.
    As the gardeners do not live at the farm, you gonna be in the afternoons and weekends on your own.
