Michaelshof Sammatz

Hello globetrotters, hello curious people of this world! You want to experience something new? Discover the world? Get to know yourself? Take on the challenge of 'life'? Then come join our team, we are a bunch of young (and also older) people who have a lot of fun living and working. Michaelshof is an international community surrounded by nature in the beautiful Wendland. We are 250 people who create a life together that is good for people and nature. All our food is organically (-dynamically) grown and we place great value on nature and spirituality. We love to start new projects and in more than 37 years we have already set up many things: a Demeter farm, a bakery, a dairy, a medicinal plant manufactory, a farm store & an organic café, a children's and youth home, 6 hectares of gardens and parks, a construction site and much more. And although we tend to be busy on the outside, it always comes down to people first and foremost: Find the value that only you have - & give it to the world! What value do you have? Currently we need help in the areas of garden, construction site, children and youth home, kitchen and housework: 1. Our garden is a beautiful piece of nature, a perfect teacher. Grab your shovels with us and let's get to weeding, planting & pruning. Or go out to the vegetable field with us and take care of lettuce & co. for the community and people from the region! Organic. Regional. Fair. 2. We are currently building our colorful ‹Flachsenberg Settlement›, a housing project for our community that creates living space for potential community members. The team is international and good-humored and will show you how to build a house. Our specialty is drywall, but there's all kinds of more to learn, from brick to electrical, painting, insulation and more. Hands on! 3. Our Peronnik Children's and Youth Home is the heart of our community. Children from a wide variety of backgrounds find a new home here and (mostly) love living in a community. Do you feel like playing soccer with some kids, going to see the animals, playing diabolo, or just chatting? Come to team Peronnik! 4. Who’s hungry, let’s go the kitchen! Every day we cook lunch for over 200 people – in the summer a lot of vegetables come directly from the field. Be a part of it, clean, chop, season and eat! Also, Christian always needs help in our brand-new canning kitchen where we preserve vegetables. 5. Community doesn't work without cleaning and we love it nice & clean, so we spread that too, like much else, on everyone's shoulders, including yours! If you have a skill that we can put to good use at Michaelshof, you can potentially contribute to Sammatz with your individual know-how as well. There are few rules at Sammatz, an important one being: no alcohol or drugs on site. If you can't imagine this during your stay, please apply to another host.

Just apply with exciting infos about yourself, your talents, your weaknesses and your passions! We have plenty of room in our large international community! If you have any questions, just contact Hannah and Antonia, Team Volunteers Michaelshof. We are looking forward to meeting you!

The four months I stayed in Sammatz were quite intense. I sure had fun meeting lots of people from different countries, working in the shop, taking care of animals (from cows to bunnies), driving and, especially, working in the construction! On the other side, I also had moments of frustration with some miscommunication and trying to learn German. But even those not so good moments taught me something about myself and what I want in my life.. Therefore, I am glad that I chose this place for my first volunteering and I really hope that Sammatz only gets better with time :)

I had so much fun at Sammatz and met so many awesome people from various countries. I worked often as part of the garden team, and really enjoyed spending so much time outside. I hope to return and see the tulips bloom! 🌷

It was really a pleasure to host Liz here. From the beginning, she was really friendly and easily adapted with her lovely smile to the work and living in Sammatz. She built good friendships with the other volunteers during her stay here. A big thank to you Liz, pumpkin team misses you! 😊
We are happy to had you here and wishing you to come back sometime in the future again! All the best!

My experience in Sammatz was amazing, 100% recommended! I connected with international travellers and nature. Great place to have a real social impact. You can learn many different things during the tasks, the community is very good, understanding and kind. We have the opportunity to practice other languages, cultures and make good friends. Besides, the forest and gardens nearby are wonderful, the food is delicious. It is a place for anyone eager to learn new things and about themselves in a safe space. Thanks Sammatz for everything, see you soon 💕

I couldn’t ask for a better experience for my first time volunteering!
The work is great and you have lots of options, also they are really flexible with the schedule and one thing that I really liked was the relationship of mutual understanding and respect.💗
Sammatz is a gorgeous place with amazing landscapes, it’s so easy to get in touch with nature, yourself and others.✨

I really hope I can come back soon,
Dankeschön and tschüss! 💗

Sammatz was amazing, better than I expected. I could know wonderfull people of a lot of countries and share with them at work and in the volunteers house. I was there just a few weeks, but everyone, mentors and volunteers were so kind that I really felt welcome and in community. Also you never need to buy food, because the volunteers house has a lot of and variety. Work at garden at the end of autumn can be a little hard, but the schedules always change so you can try different tasks. Thanks and hope to come back!
