  • Description

    The two of us have been a couple for more then 10 years and we go through life and the world together. We would like to get to know other people, cultures, ecological ways of life and each other further, to contribute, develop and extend our skills and knowledge. We prefer the simpler, natural life, beyond the consumer madness and long for a quiet but lively place where we can realize our ideas.
    Steffen is more the practical, skilled craftsman type, who tackles where things need to be done and improvises where it is possible. He has learned to use different tools. His passion is photography and design. I, Raphael, have been travelling more musically so far and am enthusiastic about natural medicine, indigenous cultures, flora and fauna and languages. We have already gained experience in gardening on the leased field in Germany and since we started with helpX and workaway in any farms and homestays in Australia, New Zealand, Florida and Mexico. We would like to intensify the natural interaction with plants and animals, especially the (rain) forest reforestation.
    Any tasks or results were for example: build a wooden base for a shed, build steps on a slope, pathway through fruit trees, build composting bins, build a chicken coop, plant bushes and trees, create a beet, tidy up garage, dig a drain. After that we had any more experiences in US with build a huge parcel delivery box and replace a kitchen. And everywhere was animal care a part of our workaway life.
