Région: Yukon TerritoryOur farm is a permanent experimental platform. It is based on development of alternative agriculture, which includes gardening, horticulture, landscaping and water features and breeding of species of animals, birds and bees, as close to wild species. Gradually increasing our tourist base, which gives guests the opportunity to be coming "in the natural world" and experience for yourself the life that is different from the habitual residence in the city. Main thing for us is to create conditions on the farm, close to the wild natural environment. We further enhance the local landscape of forests, wetlands, grasslands, and other features of the area. We complement this highly productive grassland systems and ponds, creating shelters and breed certain animals and birds that are capable of living together and complement each other. All our actions are aimed at creating a climate for rapid development of insects, birds, amphibians, and so on. On the background of monoculture systems, this creates many thousands variety of flora and fauna. We were deeply touched by actual problems of ecology and fodder production in the world and so we are taking concrete steps in this direction on our farm. We want to come to a balance in our own lives. Learn on their successes and failures, nurturing self-confidence to further promote and expand our vision of a world where we live. We want to diversify our capabilities, multifaceted and positively apply them, as well as improve the quality of life using a holistic approach and effective action. And, of course, we share your passion and experiences with others, and it gives us the opportunity to achieve even greater results.

Région: VasWe're a young belgian couple, Wouter (30) and Leen (25) and have a nice woodland in Hungary, near by the austrian border, away from 'civilisation'. Our dream is to have a smallscale, selfsustainable farm with a big hart for nature. Vegetable garden, our own cheese, beer and wine making, mushroom growing, our own oil presses, ... The more local the economy, the better. So ideally if all comes from your own ground. We do believe this world could be a better place. But we choose not to scream out that it all has to chance, but rather do it... If you believe something has to be different, do it differently ;) We are looking for volunteers who are, in the first place, nice people. We expect people to be interested, taking initiative, seeing what work needs to be done, thinking together with us about solutions. We find the best thing about Workaway the exchange of experiences. We learn something from you, you learn something from us. And by the end of the day we'll have a nice meal together. That's were its all about... In summertime, in July and August, we are looking for a longterm stay, preferable a couple. In this period we'll have tourist to stay here and we want to minimize the 'come and go' as much as possible , to keep it as tranquil as possible for us and the tourists. So we prefer if you would be able to stay here for 2 months, keen on gardening and full of enthousiasm!
