Alternative living community : The Eco-house of Lichtenberg

in the Morning, 10 o'clock, in the light of Berger Wönnichstraße, house number 103. A young man by the door sleepy to open. Andreas Keller, 31, one of the residents of the house project – it is a socially and ecologically oriented community. You want to realize a resource-saving, sustainable and communal way of life, told Keller. In the whole house is organic – both in the shower care as well as the food.

No Elmex tooth paste for example – but only products from the health food store or Eco-label. Everything must be ecologically degradable. The shower, kitchen and washing machine water to the 15 adults and five children will be prepared in-house internal water system and re-used. A sewage treatment plant in the basement and in the garden, the grey water cleans. Do not drink the recycled water, however, the house has additional drinking water connections. Add to that Solar and photovoltaic systems on the roof and compost toilets. In the community kitchen on the ground floor is exclusively cooked vegetarian. A vegan diet does not, however, yet.

this year want to the three architects of the house to a community Foundation to sell

In the year 2000 and have bought three architects, the land and house as the area was a redevelopment area. They formed a community and now want to sell the property this year to the "community Foundation of Triassic – to Whom belongs the soil". This has made it a mission to prevent the further sale of land. "Trias is our backup instance," says Andreas. Both the land and the house could only be with the consent of the respective contractual partner, sold the house, community and triad.

Both have a right of first refusal. "And triad is not for sale, because that would be against their purpose of the Foundation. To this you are bound,“ says Keller. So is also ensured that residents are not able to sell the house – because it's supposed to be secured for several generations. Because, according to leasehold Trias had to agree, if the house is to be sold. The Foundation, in turn, would require a sale of the soil, the consent of the house residents.

Once in a month, the people's kitchen

soil, Ecology, and community Living are the topics of the, founded in 2002, Trias Foundation. "The ground is in the public domain, and not only land for investors", - said on the Website. The Foundation lives off of donations, the members of the community and donations.

in Addition to the apartments in the house in the Wönnichstraße a large common room and a winter garden. In addition, a "showcase space" to the street, which is for "noncommercial purposes" free of charge to various groups is provided. So singing in a choir or Yoga are held here. Once-a-month "call for food", people's kitchen: vegetarian/vegan food by donation and some cultural activities such as Karaoke.
