What is Kuckucksmühle?


Kuckucksmühle (Cuckoo Mill) is a historical water mill in the North East of Germany (Brandenburg Federal State). We aim to restore the mill and its outbuildings, set up a Hackerspace / Hackbase and permaculture farm.

Kuckucksmühle is part of the Eco Hacker Farm project.

Anyone who shares these ideals is welcome to participate online or on site in the ongoing projects.

We would like people to come, share their knowledge and participate in community activities linked to restoration of the old mill and its outbuildings, gardening, digital and hardware infrastructure, organizing and planning the future.

We encourage our visitors and volunteers to learn more about Permaculture and have a collection of books on site to do so.

Do you have any relevant books that would fit in well with what we are doing? We would love to have them.

Support us with things we need, things that maybe are garbage to you or things that you realize you don't use but in a community it would make sense: List of things we use and want
