We are:

Bea and Christian, Uli and Michi, a team of younger and older people with diverse paths and work experience including pedagogical, horticultural and global travel.


Our location is the Mægede Talu (Estonian for farm
on the hill), an 11 hectare farm purchased in 2017
in the north of the island of Hiiumaa in Estonia.

What we offer:

  • The simple life vastly untouched environment with a solar-operated shower and compost toilette.

  • Basics in creating and working a permaculture garden, house construction, cooking and the knowledge and usage of herbs.

  • Playful activities in the encounter with nature.
