Self-sufficient vegan retreat in Germany

Ben Green is a host on Working Traveller, providing paid and free opportunities (in army barracks in the forests of Saxony, Germany) to experience a totally remote, self-sufficient living.

The host location is an opportunity to escape from a metropolitan city environment with the nearest shop about 20 miles away.
His retreat is totally vegan and anti-alcohol; a private room/ bed is provided in the barracks (that has the ability to accommodate 300 beds); work starts from 8.AM with a large break (to avoid overheated working conditions) then begins later in the afternoon.

A work reference will be provided for future employment purposes to travellers hosted by Ben Green. A great way to boost up an international CV for prospective employers in your home country or overseas.

He currently, has 5 active work posts on our site Working Traveller:

Grounds person
Vegan Cook
Taking care of pigs
Gardener X2
