About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are a small CSA vegetable farm and work the land with our three draft horses. We have three children (age of 13, 10 and 5 years old). Susa, our gardener and two biodynamic farmer apprentices (Maeve and Felix) are a part of our steady team. We live in a nice little village called Oberellenbach with many friendly people and we take part in the very active village life. We have a small scale grocery store here in the village, as well as a small hotel, church and gas station. Oberellenbach is found in a beautiful landscape of rolling hills and forests, and there are even little swimming lakes nearby. We appreciate and enjoy volunteers and to be very clear: we can only take helpers who stay at least two weeks. Plus, you get the most fun and knowledge out of the experience if you stay longer!! We have most meals together at the moment, cooked by a wonderful person in association with our CSA, which means we have a close living situation. However we do have a nice, well organized house for the volunteers and our steady gardening team. This house has a large kitchen, two bathrooms, common room, plenty of bedrooms and internet. There is hot water and heating for the cold winter months! And don't worry, we have hot water in the summertime as well!
