We are an Eco-Community in Bavaria, founded in 2016. We took over a former vacation village in the beautiful natural area close to the Czech border, which used to be "the end of the world" from both sides for decades.
By our way of living we aim to contribute an important step towards a world, where all beings can live in peace, trust, freedom, joy and connectedness.
Currently we are approx. 50 grownups of all ages, 20 children, 2 horses and several cats and dogs and are still open to new members.

Building workcamp until 17th of December 2017 (Outlook 2018: Starting again from 16th of February - between mid December and mid February we are having an internal community retreat time and do not need helpers).

Autonomous supply of energy from renewable sources, reconstruction in accordance with biological building principles and the creative realization of community-oriented housing forms.
Would you like to help to convert poorly insulated bungalows from the 1970s, which were operated with electric heating into modern eco-houses? Work will include walls, roofs, floors, windows, doors, insulation, solar heating, heat storage, heat distribution, wood stove, painting. Please be aware that the work can sometimes be hard and dusty. Apart from the bungalows there is also some work to be done on the main buildings, e.g. renovation of the leaky roofs, improvement of the heat distribution, etc..
For this workcamp we are looking for about 20 people.

You cannot only learn about ecological building, but also actively participate in our community life.

You meet every day with the group for a common start and an evening round with conversation or other activities.
New volunteers are invited to join preferably every weekend (Friday-Sunday).
Minimum stay: 2 weeks!
We are looking for people who are able to get things done, have manual skills and experience and enjoy working and living together with us in the nature community.
To relax your tired bones after work we have a Sauna and a Jacuzzi, and there are lakes nearby.

We started the work camp in the beginning of June and since then we have such a nice international helpers team, integrated in the whole community. Many people extended their stay longer than originally planned and some are even considering to join the community completely. We are happy and thankful about the good energy together and the work progress!

Update: So far our experiences are very positive, so we decided that we want look for people to help us with cooking as well. If you have experience with cooking for about 50 people and can coordinate the helpers you are welcome to join our vegan magicians in the community kitchen! Its also possible to split the working-week in both cooking and building.


You will have a shared or individual room (if available) or sleep in your own tent. Vegan meals are provided.

Working: Maximum 5 hours a day, 5 days a week

We speak German, English and Spanish
