  • Description


    We are a group of 11 people between 1 and 58 years (three Children and eight grown ups) old living togehter in two old farmhouses. Our daily live is structured by our different jobs, looking after our kids, cooking for all of us in the evening and meeting for dinner every evening. We love to spend time together, playing, discussing or making music. Besides our jobs we are looking after an integral natural reserve where our six cows are in charge of biodiversity, we have two horses, our bees produce our honey and our chicken saved from factories deliver some eggs sometimes. We have a garden where we try all sorts of different techniques how to grow vegetables. Volunteers who came to our place up to now said that they appreciated the community life and they liked it most when they were ok with working selfresponsible because during the week we often have little capacity to acompany someone during the day. that doesn´t mean that nobody is at home but we have to look after the kids or work. If you like this mixture of spending time with a community on the one hand and being on your own on the other hand it might be a beautiful place for you. Alltogether our place has about 15ha and a helping hand is always welcome.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are looking forward to meet people from all over the world and have fun together. As we live in a community with a different economic and social approach visitors can get an impression about a different concept how to live together. This is a place with close contact to our surrounding nature developing different ways of how to live together in a group. We are looking forward to meet visitors who are interested into this part of our life.

  • Help


    Our idea is that visitors help 4 - 5 h per day and that they benefit from what they learn at our place. We need help looking on repairing stables, constructing with wood, painting, looking after our cows and horses, repairing fences, rebuilding our shed and doing gardening. We like to find out your special skills and preferences and to look after possibilities where to make them as useful as possible around our project. We are looking for people who appreciate exchange of ideas, who are able to work responsible on their own and who like to work with their hands.
