Permaculture, horse assisted therapy and ecological building on our small farm in beautiful nature - Gernsbach, Germany

volunteering in Germany
HELLO!
our beautiful farm "Weidenhof" is located close to Baden Baden/ Freiburg/ Karlsruhe. On 5 ha we have 4 horses, cats, sheep and goats. We're looking for a cheerful person with skilled hands. A long stay is possible.

ABOUT US

Uwe is competent craftsman and has a lot of experiences with ecological building projects. He worked several years as a construction manager. He is aswell a yoga and dragon dreaming trainer and we both are very interested in a healthy life style and sustainable living.
I (Frauke) am a social worker, psychotherapist (Gestalttherapie) and working in the field of animal assisted therapy.
We both love to work with children and teens.
Simeon is a wilderness pedagogue and Moritz is a great vegan chef, who takes care of us ;)

OUR PHILOSOPHY

free workaway
We work aswell with traumatised people. Be aware when visiting us that we work therapeutically and have therefore a special way of non-violent communication and behaviour. We have been creating on our farm a "safe space" where we maintain an atmosphere of mutual respect and partnership - both with our clients and our animals.
This includes a few rules at the farm which we take very seriously (for example not to feed the animals out of your hand, going very aware to an animal with noticing in advance if the animal really wants you close and to be touched). In the beginning they may appear a bit strict to you. We view them more as an opportunity for you to experience a new way of being and living together- both with humans and with animals.

TASKS

Construction and building projects (green classroom for children, jurt, insulating, claybuilding), animal care, gardening, cooking,... we are active in animal assisted therapy. When you are interested you could learn something about the regardful contact with animals/ horses (no riding). We are in the midsts of rebuilding activities.
We are installing permaculture projects (green classroom, food forest, raised beds,...) on the farm so we are more than happy if you want to share your knowledge in that topic with us.
