  • Description


    Hi everyone!

    I'm living on a farm in a collective with eight other people. I'm responsible for the cultivation of vegetables. Things to do: to cherish plants (all kind of vegetables), plant them, take care of them, manage weeds, cutting and applying mulch, harvesting, cleaning vegetables and preparing them for getting sold, takeing seeds, prepare seeds….

    All this we do on 2000 m2 with minimum input of machines but a lot of human power =) So i need your help! =)

    If you are interessted in growing vegetables it's a huge playground here and you can learn a lot i think.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As i mentioned above you can learn a lot. I'm (we are) willing to share knowledge and go into exchange with people.

    In summer we are a checkpoint for a lot of people. In August there is also a nice Festival on our place where we do acustic music for 10 days and all kind of other art people like to share.

    All in all it's a free space for free people. Come, help, enjoy!

    If you want to check the surrounding, you can walk, take one of our bikes or if we dont need it also take a car. If you like to climb (my hobby) we can go for it if we have time =) There is also the really beautiful "Ottensteiner Stausee" 15 minutes away by car. Super place to camp, swim, enjoy nature.
