  • Description

    Description

    We have bought an old manse with a lot of rooms and a garden. It is beautiful and right next to a church. The two of us are in our 40 and 50 and need help in the garden and reburbishing doors and our beautiful old staircase. Marienfeld is near Bonn 30km and Cologne 40km. We prefer a stay of at least 3 weeks. The airport Köln/Bonn is 25 km away.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are experienced in organic farming and refurbishing old houses. I lived in three eco-communities in germany and scotland. This is a peaceful house and we love a kind interaction. It is so important to discus worldwide about an alternative living to create a better world.

    Sanding and painting: At the moment we are refurbishing our old staircase, so it‘s mainly about wood-work. We have a meditation space above the car port and sometimes we need help to beautify this. Our day during the week starts at 7 am when we meet and share and organize our tasks. This meeting is mandatory for our volunteers to organize and update. We need volunteers who are mature and can also work on their own.

    We have two lovely guestrooms and live next to a church so bells ring during the day not in the night though. We have a young dog and a cat, so you have to be pet-friendly, knowing how to handle dogs.

    We could have one or two meals together. We have mostly organic food and sometimes organic meat from the region.

    What else ...

    Our village Marienfeld lies in beautiful nature and is nontheless close to Bonn and Cologne. But we aren't the right place when you actually want to be in a city. One can have long and nice walks in this lovely enviroment. We would expect about 4-5 hours work a day. We are very tolerant and we would like you to work with the willingness to contribute. We love an alternative and spiritual life. So you are invited to be part of our meditations. They are no obligation though.
