We, the farmers/gardeners/builders are a crew of boys and girls in our twenties - with some seniors contributing their experience, so there should be enough to talk and joke about, to have a good time and to learn german (if you're into that) ... One of our main projects at the moment is building two large eco-wood houses, we need a lot of help with this beautiful project – both skilled and unskilled helpers are welcome! Apart from any other help which is of course highly appreciated we're right now especially looking for architects and architectural draughtsmen. There work to do on the farm; feeding the animals, milking and mucking out the stables. Aside from the more outdoorsy and physical work there are still plenty of other tasks such as helping in the kitchen/the dairy/the bakery or even babysitting ... So if you're interested in helping in the many realms described above, you're most certainly welcome to contact us. If you're planning to join us building and gardening will be the main fields of work. From early spring onwards, we need a lot of help on the fields and in the gardens; preparing the acres and beds, sowing, weeding, harvesting and so forth. We'd like you to stay for at least one month so you have a chance to really get into the things you're doing here. Being here for a longer period of time also offers the opportunity to learn/brush up on your German skills! Your stay is appreciated all year long – just try and apply! If you have further questions or you want to get to know us better, Skyping is always an option. Hannah and Antonia (we are part of the team and responsible for the organization)
You can eat together with many of us in the big dining room, where our cook creates great dishes from organic ingredients and as often as possible from our own field. We also provide food for vegans and vegetarians, so theres no need to worry on that front! We have guest rooms both big and small, we'll try to find the best accommodation for you depending on how many people we are at the time and where you'd prefer to stay. Please note that we do not allow alcohol and drugs in/outside the houses and on the premises in general. We're no activists in this regard and would never dream of telling you how to live, it's just that alcohol and drugs don't work with our place and we'd ask you to respect this for the duration of your stay.
Sammatz, es un maravilloso lugar, las veces que he estado allí he disfrutado mucho mi estadía, me han hecho sentir en casa y en familia, están siempre pendientes de ti, de cómo estás, de cómo te sientes, de que necesitas.
Si quieres mejorar tu inglés, aprender Aleman están dispuestos a enseñarte, yo he hecho ambas, además los integrantes de la comunidad han aprendido bastante Español, algo super genial también es que son muy organizados con los horarios de trabajo🤗❤️.

Living in Sammatz is really, really special, you get to meet people from all over the world, you practice english, spanish and german, you learn from the locals to share, to care about people, to listen and what it really means to respect each other. Many times I felt like I was in another world, the place is so beautiful and well taken care of, the gardens and lake look perfect. In Sammatz I made friends I know I'll have forever, this place will always be in my heart. Please, if you have the opportunity go! :D

Sammatz is a very special place. I have met amazing and very interesting people from all across the world many of whom I consider very good friends and I have learned a lot of new skills. I decided to extend my stay because of the current Covid pandemic and I couldn't think of a better place to be during this time :)
This is also a great place to practice your Spanish!
