  • Description


    We have just 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 about one or two weeks, not much shorter. The airport Köln/Bonn is 25 km away.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are experienced in organic farming, permaculture and refurbishing old houses. I lived in three eco-communities in germany and scottland. With my daughter I am the founder and supporter of a femal artist network and my house is sometimes full of young people. It is so important to discus worldwide about an alternative living to create a better world.

  • Help


    Normal garden work and helping out with painting. Lawn mowing, weeding etc. We want to buy a little green house soon and plant everything for our own needs. We have a meditation space above the car port and we need help to beautify this. Our day starts at 7 am when we meet and share and organize our tasks.

  • Accommodation


    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.

    We could have two meals together. There is also the possibility to cook your own meal in the kitchen. We have mostly organic food and sometimes organic meat from the region.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Marienfeld lies in beautiful nature and is nontheless close to Bonn and Cologne. One can have nice walks in this lovely enviroment. We would expect not more than 4 hours work a day. We love an alternative and spiritual life. So you are invited to be part of our daily sharings and meditations. It is no obligation though.
