Testimonial from Clara

Well… I`m writing this review mainly out of two reasons: 
One is that I want to contribute to the amount of information that other fellow human-beings who are considering coming to Chuckleberry have access to. 
And then – even more importantly – because I feel like this is the least I can do after my depart. I really feel the desire to express my experience with this place…
But I find myself struggling with this.
Actually, it has never been harder to put my feelings into words.
All I can say is that this place is so unique and special that it cannot be compared to anything else, and no matter how many or which words I use – they can`t do justice to the way I feel.

I spent three months at Chuckleberry, and while the concept of time functions a little differently there which makes it feel more like 3 days, the amount of experience and knowledge I gained during my stay is so tremendous that I can honestly say Chuckleberry is the most valuable experience I have made so far.

I came to this place as a young solo work&traveler, shy and insecure and not knowing what to expect… and what I found was a place that now feels like home, with people that feel like family.

What Jon created there is so much more than „just“ a Microgreen-Farm.
He created a truly magical place in the middle of nature, surrounded by trees and waterfalls and with the most amazing view. 
This place draws the most beautiful human-beings from all over the world and encourages them to go on a self-discovery journey within. 
To connect with each other in a way that goes way beyond those usually superficial connections that you are used to by living within society.
It teaches you about alternative, sustainable living, about living in and with nature and in harmony with yourself and the people that surround you.
And there is nothing more important than this in a world which is so full of insane ignorance, blindness and egoism.

Not only did I form very meaningful relationships; this place also helped me to discover parts of myself that I didn`t know they even exist.
In a stage of my life at which I was seeking to find out who I am, struggling and frustrated with myself, this place tought me how to fully accept and genuinely be myself.
It made me realize and experience what I already suspected: that once you start looking inside, there`s a whole universe unfolding itself. And that in order to deal with the universe outside of you, you first need to connect and learn how to live in harmony with the one within yourself.
Jon is a very wise, calm and playful human-being with a lot of knowledge about the human nature and a lot of experience… he provides a perfectly safe environment to go on this journey within.

So if you are looking for a place to reconnect with nature, to meet incredily wonderful people and to grow in a way which you most likely have never experienced before – look no further.

I am deeply grateful to everyone for making this experience so special for me.You all are very beautiful souls, and this place will stay in my heart forever.
With a lot of Love,Clara <3

Somewhere in the mountains, surrounded by trees, you will find yourself in a special place.
Entering this place, you will find that time works differently there.
Almost as if entering a different time space reality, haha.
A place that feels like home.
You will find people connecting with each other, with ALL of what they are, and embracing all of those parts.
People who share with each other their deepest parts of themselves.
Their vulnerability.
Who hold space.
Who make you feel save.
Save to look at all that there is within you, and work through any challenges you may be facing, and supporting you with your sometimes uncomfortable journey on freeing yourself from any baggage you may be carrying around with you.
A place where you’ll connect to nature.
To silence.
Where you will find a lot of laughter and joy and ease amongst a lot of depth.
Where you feel simply free to BE.

I spend the last 5 weeks here and don’t have enough words to describe this incredible experience I had at this wonderful place.
How much I’ve learned and am taking from it.
How much I appreciate and love everyone in the community, for it’s them who made my experience so very valuable to me.
Parts of me feel truly transformed, and I’m still reveling in all these beautiful moments I experienced here that will now turn into beautiful memories that I will always carry with me.

Thank you to everyone and I miss you all already,

with mountains of love and appreciation,
