This blog collects notes from Höfen, a small village in Southern
Germany, where Kathrin from public works was living and working for
I come from here and I've been here so many times during the
last 20 years that I can't quite tell the difference of arriving in
order to stay for a few months - rather than a few days - yet.
We had "welcoming' gifts - very sweet from Erna and from Ingrid
and her daughter. There was a village fete in the next village
called Freudeneck (that's "corner of joy" in english) with another
version of a pop up village shop, and I had silly amounts of
Kathrin - that's me - from public works and
myvillages.org is moving
back to her home village of Höfen in Southern Germany for the next
few months. We are moving there with the whole family and will
increase the village population by 2.5% - that's amazing.
From there I'll be working on a number of projects such as
Waren which I started with myvillages.org in Höfen a few
years ago, and other interlinked projects such as Rhyzom, the International Village Shop.
