Collaboration

You can be part of the development processes. Participate as a volunteer or  join a sub-project workshop and learn from people who share the knowledge. On the other hand, we are always looking for mentors to teach the respective topics which match the specific sub-project. Or visit the farm to get a taste of permaculture in the green. However, there are also other ways how you can collaborate.

Or persons who like to stay longer, take care of volunteers, animals or helping building up, take over a role in management and so on.
