Hof Hackenow

Hof Hackenow

We are a small group of people settling in the very east of Brandenburg close to the polish border in the beautiful Oderbruch region.
We have 2ha of space and two houses on it that needs renovation. We plan on doing permaculture in order to provide us with local fresh veggies, at the same time we strive to not destroy and protect the last bits of nature around us if possible - so to live peacefully with other creatures around us.

Living and Learning Retreat Space

After 14 years of patience and persistence, I am closer to being successful in my life vision project.
Thank you to two of my dearest friends, a couple of beloved soul mates that I am blessed to walk this planet with, I have received a donation of enough money to now go and buy a hectare or two in the Sierra of Oaxaca, where I always imagined the project to take place.

Lively Village

Lively Village

A natural farm and wannabe community in Lithuania

Lively Village is a socio-ecological project in which farming activities are practised by seeking to adapt to the natural environment and enrich its biological diversity, instead of a millenia-old practise of rude human intervention into the natural processes. Currently our natural farm is developing and growing in these directions: several flocks of ancient domestic chicken and guinea fowl species kept exclusively for their eggs, ancient geese kept for fluff and a freshly introduced ancient turkey, a cow mother and her cub never to be separated and kept for milk only.

Lebenshof Graben

Lebenshof Graben

Community for a good life.

Lebenshof Graben is a social project in Lower Bavaria, Southern Germany. Since 2015 we work on building up a small community of eight people. Together we want to develop our project and find the ideal way for us to live and work together on our historically protected farm. Currently we are planning to offer social agriculture, multigenerational houses, permaculture and projects with kids, disadvantaged people or refugees.
We are currently welcomming new project participants!

Hof Medewege

Hof Medewege

Biodynamic cultural farmstead

We are a community of diverse individuals organized in plenty of projects, intitiatives and businesses located close to Schwerin in northern Germany. In Medewege agriculture meets craft, arts, culture and education. Our whole project began in 1991 with the foundation of a Waldorf Kindergarten on an abandoned estate surrounded by agricultural areas. Gradually, we then started with farming and food processing, from milk to yoghurt, from grain to bread, from apple to juice. All of our farming and food processing practices follow Demeter guidelines. However, we are more than a farm!

Strohplatz

Permaculture, food forest and non-violent communication learning place in Germany

Strohplatz is a 3.000m2 garden, a shed and a big house, all being rebuild with permaculture principles. It is situated in the small village Rorodt near Trier in Germany. The house can host up to 20 people, who can join courses in permaculture, food forests, self-sufficiency and non-violent communication. The whole project is created to be self sufficient, with a small food forest with lots of perennials. See http://strohplatz.com for more details.

Sustainable co-operative

Sustainable co-operative

We are a young married couple, Pace and Blu, who are looking to build a sustainable way of life. Over the years we have been studying human societies and alternative methods of living, all over the world.

We realize community is the fundamental ingredient to a successful sustainable future.
That said, we also understand that people require their own personal freedom with the ability to explore whatever religious or spiritual beliefs they may hold.

Puls der Erde e.V.

Puls der Erde e.V.

center for researching and training of regenerative lifestyle skills

If a new community gameworld tries to be “inclusive” it brings together individuals from diverse contexts. They include fundamental Christians, free lovers, yoga people, permaculture folks, artists, entrepreneurs, vegans, and the homesteaders with their beehives, chickens, and goats. Some of the people love sociocracy, some spiral dynamics, some the 6-step consensus method, some anarchy, and some love M. Scott Peck’s community building. Each faction brings their own familiar context, thoughtware and well-established rules-of-engagement.

Freie Feldlage Harzgerode

Freie Feldlage Harzgerode

A group of pioneers is about to create a new ecovillage in central Germany. We're about ten people at this time, while we can imagine that our compound might be inhabited by 100 or more people in the long run.
The area consists of 21 ha with several buildings (an old sanatorium as well as residential houses), gardens and forests.
Possible fields of focus might be (among others): multi-generational living, community-related businesses and educational projects for young adults.

Gemeinschaft Sulzbrunn

Gemeinschaft Sulzbrunn

gemeinschaftlich leben im Allgäu

Die Gebäude können über 50 Menschen in verschiedenen Wohnkonstelationen beherbergen.
Wir streben eine Autarkie in Teilbereichen an, daher wird es sicher eine eigene Gärtnerei, sowie verschiedene Werkstätten geben.
Die Integration aller Generationen ist uns wichtig.
Wir möchten bewusst und respektvoll mit uns, mit anderen Menschen, mit Tieren und Pflanzen umgehen. Wir wollen das Gute im Anderen sehen und uns gegenseitig unterstützen und ermutigen.
Unsere Gemeinschaftsküche wird vermutlich vegetarisch gestaltet.

Projekt WIR

Projekt WIR

Gemeinschaftsnetzwerk Berlin Brandenburg

Das Projekt WIR ist im Juli 2013 auf Initiative von Rikarda, Holger und Reinhard in Berlin gestartet. Im ersten Jahr haben wir uns monatlich zu einer Runde Gemeinschaftsbildung nach Scott Peck getroffen, zusammen mit anderen Menschen die ab und zu dazukamen. Während diesem Jahr lernten wir noch viele andere Kommunikationsmethoden kennen und wollten sie gerne mal ausprobieren. So entstand die Idee, Dozenten dazu einzuladen uns diese Methoden vorzustellen, und wir organisierten dies als monatliche Workshopreihe.

Lebensgemeinschaft Hackenow

Lebensgemeinschaft Hackenow

Wir sind begeistert unseren Traum vom gemeinschaftlichen Leben auf dem Land in naher Zukunft umzusetzen. Wir suchen noch weitere Mitmacher_innen, die Lust haben auf ein Leben in Gemeinschaft mit uns!

Permaculture Schloss Glarisegg

Permaculture Schloss Glarisegg

Vacant places for volunteers in the permaculture garden of the ecovillage Schloss Glarisegg, Switzerland

We have started setting up the permaculture garden within the ecovillage in 2012. Since then, it is constantly growing and changing. This year, we have build a pond, a small greenhouse for seedlings, a solar dryer, an outdoor kitchen, and have our first animals, namely ducks (who are busy eating the snales) and chickens. And, of course, from the start we have supplied the community as well as the seminar business with many, many fresh vegetables. And there are so many more opportunities and ideas... we take it step by step.
