  • Descrição


    You will find us in the beautiful landscape between the cities of Weimar, Jena and Leipzig. A big family with 5 kids lives in a small hamlet and rebuilds the houses of an old farmstead. Greenfields and apple trees, pears and walnut, sheep and poultry behind the barn. Paul is a professional theatre-actor and cultural manager MA (the artist) and Sandra is an industrial engineer (the builder and constructor). We are willing to make this place a social-cultural venue for arts, theatre, singing and dancing. During the harvest season we are running a mobile fruit press (mostly for apples) and we additionally experimentalise with the production of wine and cider. You won't have a chance to avoid a tasting -. A paradise to spend two weeks or more, joining our everyday life, to help us with gardening, preparing the venue, renovating rooms and houses, plastering with earth, building with timber, pressing loads of apple-juice - or to cook a meal you can do best and to sing us your favorite songs from home. Bring us a whiff of the big wide world! Sandra & Paul

  • Ajuda


    Step by step we go forward to make this place a social-cultural venue. We started a big family-project for generations. It takes it’s time. Most of the work on renovating the houses is done by ourselves. By the way: we always need help inside the house, cooking for example, no matter what project we are on. Furthermore we have some ongoing projects as following here:

    during the whole season:
    GARDENING! A help we always need. If you are happy with working outside, taking care of the patches, weeding, mowing and watering, we will find find a lot of satisfying projects for you!

    WE PREPARE OUR YARD FOR A CONCERT IN JUNE 2024 - and will need your help!

    during springtime and summer:
    1. continue the construction of a second kitchen and bathroom for workawayers - We‘re really looking for proper help in building!
    2. We are planing to build an earthen stove
    3. We‘d like to build a compost toilet

    in September/October
    1. we'll definitely need help for to harvest and press loads of apples
    2. we will need help to prepare the village-festival (06.10.2024)

    in november we'll need help with
    - cutting branches
    - eventually work on our second building
    - someone who helps doing the chores

    It might be important to point out that all our activities in yard and village are non-profit.

    So, if you can get on with a sackful of kids... don‘t hesitate.

    We offer accomodation in 2 seperate rooms in a seperate building and in a big caravan with a heating and your own fridge. So you can always retire from the family-life if you need time off. We also offer WiFi, but we point out, that you should be equipped with mobile data, if you are a digital nomad and dependent on a quick and always working connection. Streaming films and music is of course always possible, as far as our experience goes.

    Over and above you can of course join our meals as well as our kitchen, share our restrooms, one of our two bathrooms, take showers or even a bath. It will be quite familiar.
