Space for anyone to be inspired, concentrate, work, and play in the countryside! Quiet and solitude – Yes. Total Isolation – No. Most human beings, about 90% of them, need a balance of solitude and people in order to be truly productive. And while you may need complete quiet while working on a particular project or a room with a view for your team pow-wow, you also need to unwind and speak to other people to keep those creative juices flowing. Certain elements, such as our ‘family style’ lunches and dinners will give you a chance to talk to others who are right there with you, getting away from it all, but working.
We all sit at the same table at Coconat - literally. We eat lunch and dinner together. You always have a chance to get to know fellow Coconauts and to meet our guests as well!
It is a very complete experience to practice English, learn about German culture and socialize with people from all over the world. It is a volunteer work full of teamwork and collaboration. Makes you want to stay a long time.
On the other hand, the COCONAT Team is very aware of the availability of hours and work, as well as being very attentive to our state in the COCONAT community.
Finally, I want to thank Julianne and Janosch for their attention and exceptional treatment.

I stayed for a total of 6 weeks and are already planning to come back!
I got various tasks like: taking care of the bar, helping to prepare and serve meals, cleaning, washing the dishes, babysitting, gardening etc...
Inspiring people, beautiful interiors, amazing healthy vegetarian food, countryside feel and immersion in the nature make it a place to be! The hours and tasks are more than fair (they never exceed 20h/week) and Julianne is the best boss I've ever had: fun, friendly, honest and flexible.
All in all, this place is a volunteering pearl, don't think twice about coming here:)

I'm really grateful to be part of COCONAT! It's one of the best experiences I had in my life and I'm still here stuck with this amazing Quaran-Team because of CORONA I couldn't fly back home. Fortunately, I'm always lucky to meet good People; Julianne and Janosch the owners let me stay with them until I can go home, they're so kind, treat me like family and always asking me if I'm fine! I’m spending a good time in COCONAT, we still work to not be bored like cooking, cleaning, working in the garden, sanding & painting the windows, chatting with the Quaran-team.
