We are a non-profit permaculture project, building up a forest garden since `98.
We are experimenting with edible plants and methods for self-sufficiency to learn about how to grow foods in alternative, sustainable, vegan ways. The group works in an libertarian way.

Interested people can join in for a shorter or longer stay. We do not live together, but we have a small office room in Verden that we share for working and cooking and where up to two guests can sleep.

We organize our food together and offer guests to join in. We can not offer food for free because we do not make any money with the project but depending on the time and availability we can offer some harvested food and also food that we got from supermarkets or containered goods. Other than that we would welcome if you could support us with food or donation up to your capabilities.

We aren't too fixed on working times since we are trying to be a project that is open for any idea and the peoples' skills and interests. Also work in the garden always depends on time of the year and what needs to be done (this can be e.g. checking protection nets, weeding, harvesting, repairing stuff, scything, gathering and preparing mulch).

About transport- we live in Bremen and always take the train to Verden which is 25min one way. The garden itself is near the little village Scharnhorst, another 6km from our office in Verden. Mostly we drive there by bike. We do have some spare bikes in the shed. If you can bring your own bike or car- perfect! If not- don't worry, we'll find a solution.

Feel free to write us and ask any questions you might have- tell us a bit about yourself and your motivation, skills, availability, etc.!

For more and more detailed information have a look on our website or facebook where we share information about upcoming camps and s.o.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
