The dust is just now starting to settle from our most recent major renovations to Baumhaus… Before we re-open this Spring, Baumhaus needs some more helping hands with detailing, cleaning, finishing, cooking, organizing, moving, simple building, processing up-cycled materials, painting and plenty more simple tasks…
We will focus on making space for our office / video mixing room plus some other functional and aesthetic details in the rest of the space. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new ones too!
• Bring clothing you don’t mind getting a bit messy
• Bring snacks to share – Warm meal at the end!
This Autumn we continued with functional installations to the second level and began the labor intensive process of clearing out and renovating the cellar into a workshop and veggie storage for our 5 CSA/SoLaWi groups… Nina also made some progress on the small bathroom mosaic thanks to all the volunteers who showed up to help cut tiles!
We were even able to host our regular community networking nights again; fantastic as usual!
Community Networking Night is all about bringing people together from all walks of life who share a common desire: to do what they can to make the world a better place. Each Thursday evening the entire Baumhaus becomes an “Open Greeting Zone” where it is totally normal to introduce yourself to anyone else and expect the same in return. Enjoy meeting people in an authentic and informal atmosphere, developing organic relationships, sharing perspectives and collaboratively supporting each other.

Over the Summer we steadily worked on building renovations, keeping our CSA/SoLaWi rolling along and launching our regular Tuesday evening Emergent Berlin sessions in the Panke e.V. backyard. Volunteers for building, cleaning, decorating and general help are always appreciated.

This spring the social distancing and lock down rules slowed down the pace of renovations so we decided to take advantage of a 2 week, 100 hour permaculture design course at Wir Bauen Kukunft led by the legendary Prof. Declan Kennedy.
Stay tuned for band & dj video/audio recordings from our May 6 event, “Live Streams of Conscious”
