Actual information in April :
Hi there :-)
If you want to join and help, your accomodation would be the caravan, it has a gas heating, or a little chamber aside the old bakery (the room is o. K., there is a gas heater, but the bakery is not renovated at all).
We are working on rendering with clay at the moment and sanding and restauring oak beams, old stairs and doors. Cutting firewood has to be done as well, when it finally arrives.
And the garden season just began so there is a lot to do to prepare for a vegetable garden and cleaning up the rest, of course.
My mom wants to move in as soon as it is possible, but there is still a lot to do to get her rooms ready or at least her bedroom....
I am happy if you have skills in crafts but a lot of that work can be done without much experience if you just know how to use your hands and you are clever :-)
All of it is physical work so you should be quite fit.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
Hello! We are Heike, Annette, Christina and Claudia and we are starting a community place :-) The cat is Mona, Balu is quite an old dog and the young dog is Rocco :-)
Come and help us with reconstruction/redevelopment of our half-timbered manor, a historical monument of 1835, to create a vivid and peaceful place for a community with social and ecological values. As we are still at beginning of this project - we started in May 2019 - and the manor stood empty for many, many years, there are a lot of different tasks to do within a lot of building work, of course ;-)
At the moment it is just me, my cat and my dog Rocco living here permanently, Claudia and Christina will join quite soon and be living in their construction trailer. My mother is coming over every now and then and she is planning on moving in as soon as possible, we are working hard on that ;-)
We use ecological materials, work with wood and clay and cooperate with the office for the preservation of historical monuments. We displaced most of the wilderness but now we have to make a garden of the property (all in all about 6000 m² including the buildings) with areas for vegetable growing, hedges, plant fruit trees and build a natural childrens playground as we are planning to offer 1 or 2 places for small children as a foster family when the building work in the ground floor is done.
I am open for a good, honest and open minded relation in which we can support each other and I am happy to host you for a week or some months :-)
You can come with your own camper van as well of course and place it in the big garden where you can see the sunrise and listen to the animals of the forest at night :-)
Be aware that internet access is only via satellite, it works but not always good. You can use wifi but for online courses or zoom meetings it is normally not quick enough.

Cocinar para toda la familia
I can support with learning german if that's something you would like to improve.
You can learn about reconstruction of an old manor made of old and therefore natural materials - how to re-use if possible.
I like to share knowledge and experiences. I love self-development, meditation and mindfulness. I am interested in natural and energetic healing. And having fun together - of course!
Sitting at the camp-fire in the end of a day makes me happy beyond wishes and that's something I'd love to share with you.
*** Just to mention because of some interesting experiences: I am NOT looking for a guy to get my bed worm - it is "just" Workaway ;-) ***

You can help with the reconstruction of the monument-protected half-timbered manor and there are the garden tasks as well.
You can also help with the pets and the cooking and shopping and cleaning.
Lots of little repair job awaiting for you if you are good at that kind of thing.
I ask for 4-5 hours at 5 days from Monday to Friday.
There is a little workshop I would like to "rescue" from falling apart, the roof needs fixing after carpentry work.
It could become a great place for guests once it is ready and I would love to have support with ideas and work :-) You can find it in the pictures.
If you are skilled to invent a homepage with me that would be great!
There is a caravan/trailer in the garden suitable for one or two persons, if you travel together. We have a small guest room in an outbuilding with a small gasheater, but when it is getting really cold it might not be suitable. Of course you can come with your own camper van and place it in the garden.
We share the bathroom, toilet and kitchen.
There is a piano and a guitar in the house.
The food I offer is mostly from ecological farming and I am lactose-intolerant.
Mostly I eat vegetarian, sometimes I eat meat, but only bio and no mass production and I hosted vegan travelers and learned about vegan cooking some bacics :-)
I do smoke, but of course outside and the guests are asked to go out for smoking as well.
Nature is wonderful out here, there are owls, rabbits, deers, bats and birds around and there is a beautiful forest and a little stream nearby. There are a lot of historical monuments and some museums in this rural area. In 5 km there is a lake suitable for swimming and also not to forget the river Weser with its cycle path some km's away. Public transport is quite poor but you can lend a bike. It is 5 km to the station in Lahde, where I can pick you up.
