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.

It is one of the places that I really like. People are very friendly and are always aware of how you feel. The place is very big and beautiful. The facilities are very comfortable and the food is great. I take beautiful moments, friendships and new things that I learned. Would return without a doubt.

Sammatz es hasta ahora uno de los mejores lugares para trabajar como voluntario, las instalaciones son muy buenas, la vida muy buena, la comida muy variada para veganos, vegetarianos y los que comen carne, como latino me senti en casa con muchas personas de América y de nuchas partes del mundo, somos mas de 100 personas y siempre nos saludamos con una sonrisa. Aun estoy en Sammatz (junio 2020) por el covid-19 pero estoy seguro que cuando tenga que irme al abrir las fronteras de otros países, estare planeando mi retorno definitivamente a este lugar hermoso. Gracias Sammatz por tan genial trato.

Es un lugar increible, muy tranquilo con mucha naturaleza alrededor, muchos visitantes de muchas nacionalidades, es un lugar maravilloso para conocer muchas culturas para aprender del manejo de una granja de labores como la panadería y en mi caso en particular el aprendizaje en la construcción y tener el contacto con los caballos. es un lugar encantador que recomiendo mucho.

An absolutely gorgeous location and wonderful people to work with. We work hard but still have fun. I actually have not left yet, I am waiting out the Coronavirus situation here and I could not think of a better place to do so.
