Région:We are a couple who have set off into the Psunj forest to create our own paradise, to protect and to live in unity with nature. Petra (German) exchanged her life as secretary for love and adventure in the Croatian wilderness, following Kristijan (Croatian) who has always dreamt of living Permaculture on his own land. He fell in love with a little remote village in Psunj hills in Slavonia, called Gornja Sumetlica. The area is covered with huge old forests, lots of natural streams and abundant wild life. Animals are in planning but so far we only have two dogs, Oskar and Malik. This spring, we have started to renovate the old farm house, to create a permaculture garden and to work on a polyculture field.
Région: BrandenburgSince late 2010 I live in a small village (70 inhabitants) in an 40 years old farm house. Berlin and Dresden are not so far (~100 km). Since I'm here it changed a lot on this little farm. It´s an interesting area for people who like nature (forests), recultivation (coal-district), lakes, animals, bicycle tours and more. I live together with various animals (donkeys (2), sheep (2), goats (3), dogs (2), cats (4) and hens (5) and one guest horse with one foal, minipigs (3) and cows (2)). I don´t eat animals, but use eggs, eat cheese and drink milk. You have to be open-minded and your ideas and practical knowledge are welcome because I'm still trying to repair, renovate, build new with friends. The courtyard also needs to be redesigned yet. Guests who want to contribute their ideas and knowledge or want to work with animals are welcome.
Région: Hudson Valley - 2 hrs North of NYCMy husband and I have a 27 acre property in the Hudson Valley, 2 hrs N of NYC. We have five vacation rentals on our property. We also have a good number of animals; 5 horses, a flock of chicken, kittens, cats and 3 large dogs. We have a large vegetable garden and small green house. I am a choreographer and trained architect, my husband is a builder, horseman and hydraulic repairman, but the best description of us is "nature loving hippie artists". We are in need of someone, preferably a couple that would be interested in helping. If you are single person please do contact us as well. We look forward to hearing about you! The work includes, preparing the accommodations, cleaning, cooking breakfast for the guests, organizing pizza parties, showing guests around the farm, gardening and care of the small animals. Where we live is a paradise, beautiful land, quiet and somewhat remote, but close to good restaurants, galleries, stores, etc. We enjoy meeting new people and there are always a steady flow as our vacation rentals and long term renters are all interested in sharing ideas and a bottle of wine by a big bonfire. We have wonderful dinners and often these turn into impromptu parties that go into the night. You will have a lot of fun here!
