The Experience

We are a new and growing community of about 15 adults and 8 children, having volunteers, personals guests and hosting a group of students regularly! We live on a south facing hill in a nature reserve with only very few neighbours. Our campus is basically a village on its own where there is constant construction! This is where we welcome your help! We share a freshly cooked organic lunch with everyone on campus in our sun-drenched dining hall!
