HELP NEEDED FOR NATURAL BUILDING PROJECT
We are working on our little Stawbale-Clay House. Join the work, enjoy the company and work with straw and mud!
Our place is located in a small, rural village in the north-east of Germany.
We are a family living together on the farm and running the projects.
Activities now, next to gardening is is restoring an old brick building to set up workshops for courses, inventing tools and common activities.
We install also a juice making-manufactory.
We have a good relationship to many other people in our village and community-life in our area.
There is beautiful nature around, such as a nature protection area, small river, meadows, woods, and a lake to swim.
-outdoor solar shower in summer
-outside compost toilet
-heating with firewood
-no possibility to spend money in the village
Food is mostly vegetarian, usually organic, simple but good.
Vegetables and fruits almost all the year from our garden or around. We eat meat from time to time.
Accommodation is possible in guestroom, caravan, tent or hayloft or own camper.
There's an old farmhouse with common rooms (kitchen & community room, guest rooms, office), a straw bale home, workshops, meadows, trees, protected landscape, gardens, greenhouse, guest-trailer, solar panels, wind turbine and some other (old & new) buildings.
We look for people feeling themselves present & powerful and skilled in important areas of life (or at least eager to learn).
You can support us best with:
-Gardening, preserving, drying
-Everyday jobs, cooking, cleaning
-Maintaining the property
-Workshop work, fixing or building things
-Apple harvest and juice-making (Oct/Nov.)
For building and restoring we use clay, straw, wood or other recycled natural or long lasting materials as much as possible.
If you are crafts person, you will love our workshops.
