Our Gardens

Our gardens

Our gardens are part of the Community Güstritz. There we grow vegetables and herbs above subsistence level, adhering to Demeter guidelines.
We plow the land only with horses and hands. We only use natural fertilizers from our own farm and we only grow Non-Hybrid / Open-Pollinated varieties.
The way we distribute the vegetables "among the people" is known by many as CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). This principle means the shared responsibility for agriculture / vegetable production. The consumers together cover the production costs for a specific agricultural year and in turn receive all products grown.

The supplier community

The supplier community currently consists of around 40 people. We regret that at the moment we are unable to accept any new members, but if you are interested you are welcome to register on the waiting list. We will then let you know when a place becomes available. Please feel free to get in touch! Preferably by e-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
In the meantime you are welcome to fill in the registration form, which is available here in PDF format.
The supplier community is included in the agricultural / growing plan every year and can express cultural wishes, as well as agricultural / growing expansion proposals. In order to get an insight into which vegetables are available during which parts of the year, we have created a time list, which you can view here.

- take as many vegetables as they need from the collection room. Additionally, they receive a monthly newsletter with recipes
