  • Description


    I am a retired academics who spend his life working in 40 countries and now building my dream… as a place for me, my family, friends, guests, tourists… we bought the land and started to build this new kind of „Arche Noah“ as I had the idea that this is what will become the living form for the future and that this is the minimum we can do to show this planet our respect. Having own water, electricity and food provides the base of living independently and not relying on tue crazy pricing mechanisms that are coming up more and more. We are not following any religious or political intentions - everyone shall be free to believe in what (s)he assumes to be the best but not trying to influence others in this manner…

    We would like to build a community that is mostly autark with own water, electricity, housings, food by respecting the nature and the people.
    You can be a part of this important development that will be hopefully multiplied more often, but need to be completed first to proof that the idea is working

    We are building an eco village with eco farm since Spring 2023 and try to find people who are interested to join this development. It seems to be not so easy finding people who want to share the work of building such an „Arche Noah“ and live there, too. For us 3 people, it is too much work to be done alone. This is why we offer opportunities for short and longer term volunteers, travellers and similar minded people to stay with us and to support us in this huge undertaking. We di have the following projects:
    - building of a permaculture garden
    - building of a food forest
    - creating of yurt gardens and expanding the fruit production
    - building ecologic buildings from wood, clay, straw
    - reactivating / installing / enlarging the watering system for plants and people
    - building hearing systems for the houses
    - constructing and building tiny wood houses on trailers
    - setting live stock like Sheep, donkey, chicken, fish breeding, bee keeping
    - producing own compost / manure
    - protecting the plants against insects and deseases on natural ways…
    We di have 5 guest rooms in the base camp and 4 yurts on the farm where people can stay…
