There is a beautiful spot in a valley. This land is now our garden, so if you like forrest farming-gardening, welcome.

We live a simple and healthy life. We have no internet(or not a good one-mobile connection)
or telephone reception, so low radiation.

For phone calls we walk up the hill, for internet we visit libraries or cafes.
There are 2 (caravans) or a tent available.

Although the location is remote, there is a big social network here with many like-minded back-to-the-land people.

We appreciate more or less 2-4 hours of work a day.

Activities are cleaning, building, collecting firewood, cooking and more.

We are (pretty) new at this and look foreward to some wonderful connections.

We are living on a 7 hectare Permaculture Forest Garden which we have developed over the last 14 years, it is a mature example and one of the largest in Europe.

We are aiming to be as self sufficient as poss and are currently extending our forest garden,designing and planting a new 2 hectare area.

It is a big project and we would love to have helpers interested in this project and the field of forest gardening who are also willing to do other seasonal work on the farm.

We are particularly interested in having PDC graduates who want to take their learning a bit further and gain practical experience.

The farm runs on solar energy,we have our own springs and there are compost toilets.

We are currently urgently looking for a couple/or 2 men to help with all farm tasks

Stays are usually for 1-2 weeks but we are open to a longer period if we all get on well.
We look forward to meeting you!
