GartenOn May 13 we started our programme for "summer guests". The season started well and we have already hosted many willing helpers from Germany and abroad. Every summer we offer the chance to stay for a while in ZEGG and contribute by working in the kitchen, garden or guest house.

Work with our site team or on our building sites is also possible for those with appropriate interests. The summer weeks see us harvesting fruit and vegetables together for the communal kitchen and conserving them or freezing them for the winter. We also turn seasonal produce into delicious jams, fruit spreads, pesto and chutneys.
We meet in the morning for an attunement and work assignment. Summer guests work about five hours per day from Monday to Saturday. After work there is a group meeting providing a chance to get to know each other and ZEGG. And summer guests can also take part in other open events on-site.
Summer guests are asked to arrive on Sundays (we can be flexible for those travelling from afar).  For those visiting ZEGG for the first time, we ask you to arrive in time to take part in the regular guided tour of our site at 4pm (meeting point at the 'village pub' - Dorfkneipe). You are asked to stay for at least one full week.

Check-in: Sunday, from 5:30pm in the guest house (Gästehaus)

Evening meal at 6:30om; First group meeting at 7:30pm

Price: €56 board & lodging per week

If I don´t deal with the fears in myself, I am all too ready to project them on to others.

How can we communicate with people from a different culture who have lost everything? Dolores Richter, a member of the ZEGG community, is part of a group in Bad Belzig exploring deep listening with refugees.

I live in a town which has hosted many asylum seekers. We see each other every day in the food store, in the street. There are more every day. We got to know when the buses come and gathered musicians, baked cakes and made music for their arrival. We want to let them know that they are welcome. The social worker in the refugee home was open to this but also challenged. Some days later she said: I would like you to come back for the next bus. But will you? If not all the people will...
