We are a group of people - currently about 8 adults and 4 children - willing to build up an ecologically sustainable, solidary and open countryside project close to the city of Leipzig.

In a few years, we want to live and work together with about 15-20 people here, in a community, self-determined and non-dogmatically. We plan to have a

- solidary gardening cooperative, which uses elements of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA),
- workshops for wood and metal
- and collectives and enterprises that follow principles of a solidary economy, e.g. a biological energy consultant collective and computer collectives.

and a lively city-countryside exchange.

We want to de-privatize the buildings and the land on the long run.

Our place is a small former farm, a so called "Vier-Seiten-Hof" (four-sided farm) with some land, which we bought in May and June 2011. We started reconstruction almost immediately.
In 2011 we plan to do basic reconstruction work, renovate the community rooms (with clay and a clay oven) and the first floor with sleeping rooms. Then, we will also repair the roof.

We are looking for people experienced with various handicrafts, but also not-yet-experienced are very welcome.

The place is situated at the edge of the village Sehlis, which means something like field of herbs. Sehlis is a part of the town Taucha now, which is next to Leipzig (10 minutes by local train from the central station). From the train station, it's about 15 minutes by bike to our place.
