I have been looking into co-working and co-living projects on the country side. In my vision of the future, where the countryside plays increasing importance again as people want to be closer to where their food is grown or grow it themselves, the internet makes it possible for people to work remotely and to share knowledge and feel connected.
A group of earth ship builders (Earthship is a self-sufficient house energy, water and heat wise) purchased a former botanical garden as a cooperative 3 years ago in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. They open it as a playground for visionaries and makers. It is also an idea to bring a fab-lab to the country side. Current projects are around building tiny houses and giving workshops.
People are welcome to participate with ideas, research, time, money or becoming a cooperater.
