    Descrição

    We are Holger (34), Rieke 31 and Grandma Christa (90), cats Parzival and Charles, chickens and sheep. We live on a farm in the sparsely populated Altmark in the middle of Germany. After studying, we moved to the countryside to have our own food and to live a freer, more independent life with less constraints and unpleasant compromises. We are cosmopolitan, speak German, English, French and Plattdeutsch and have already visited one or the other country.

    Holger is a sculptor, restorer and carpenter, and he also passes on his knowledge in seminars.
    Rieke is a restaurator for wallpainting, fresco and cultural heritage.
    Grandma Christa is an industrious farmer from the old school and the good soul of the farm.
    We are not vegetarians, but we often cook without meat, sometimes vegan, and eat preferably self-grown and organic.

    Our philosophy is to try living in harmony with the nature and our environment. We produce fruit, vegetable, eggs and meat on our farm for our own use and for our family. We don't use pesticides or mineral fertilizer. We try different varieties of crops, we leave some wild places for animals and created various ecosystems (pond, hedges, meadow, rock- and woodpiles...). Currently we plant an agroforesty system.

    There are always a lot of things to do on the farm. For some of the projects we found that we would need help, and that's why we are on workaway ;-). We think it is a good possibility to get some help in exchange of a place to sleep and good food, and for us all a nice experience with sharing knowledge and good moments!

    We would like to have someone who can come and help for one or two weeks.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    You can learn a lot about self-sufficiency (Selbstversorgung) and traditional life in the countryside. Besides vegetable cultivation, you will get craft skills for life. You can practice German. Holger can teach you a lot of handicraft techniques.

    We also have the chance to live 7km from Ecovillage Sieben Linden, with 140 inhabitants the biggest ecovillage in Germany. There you can learn about alternative living, ecological building and community life.

  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    We mainly need help with the garden and with building and construction projects on the farm.

    Since we are doing everything on the farm by ourselves and Holger is a craftsman, you can learn a lot. Since it is much about physical work, you should be in a good physical condition.

    Currently there are following chores to do (according to the season and of course of your personal interests):

    - plowing, planting, watering, chopping weeds and harvesting, and conserve the harvest
    - feeding sheep and chickens and clearing out the stables
    - planting trees and hedges
    - building fences
    - collect herbs, wild plants and flowers to make salad or dry for teas
    Special highlights could be:
    - hay harvesting and potato harvesting
    - making the (fire)wood in winter (we have our own forest)
    - collecting spruce sprouts and sweet chestnuts

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    Now (2023), we can offer you two wonderful sleeping possibilities. The first one is a cozy little old-fashioned guest room upstairs with lots of privacy, with a woodstove. The other possibility is the guest-caravan in the garden, with pond-view but without electricity, where you can experience a very simple life.
    In any case, you share with us the kitchen, bathroom and toilet.
    We have Wi-Fi and are non-smokers. Smoking in the house is not allowed.

    Our village, Immekath, has about 600 inhabitants, a lively village life, a pub but no shopping possibility. The nearest shop is 5 km away, the nearest small town with train station in 30 km. A car is therefore helpful, but a bike is also possible. The Altmark is a very sparsely populated, slightly hilly region with a lot of agricultural cultural landscape, culturally interesting historical places and solitary nature. If you like sailing, just ask Holger!

    In our region it is an advantage to have a car. There are only few public transportation. With a bike, it is possible to drive to the next bigger village where they are shops and buses.
