  • Description


    in our project 4 families are living.
    We try to make this land to a nice place for humans, all the little animals like bees and birds and don´t forget of course... the secret life of plants.
    It´s beautiful to live here, very close to the nature reserve and to the Baltic sea and go on forming and shaping the garden and our home.
    We have a building site with ecological demands, such as a solar heating system, mudbrick building, permaculture and so on. Helping us with our running projects you have the chance to improve your craft skills working with wood, stones, soil and clay.
    In our garden we grow our own vegetable, and we have many fruit trees (mostly apples, to turn out our own apple juice...).
    We plant a small forest, digged a few small lakes, try to preserve rare and endangered plants...
