Last Activity


My name is Maja.
We have built a small house made of predominantly natural materials (straw bales, clay, wood, sheep wool,living roof ...).
The house has a flat green roof (see the picture). We use stove for heating (wood). We have a waste treatment plant.

We love traveling but can't travel right now because with building a house and two little kids our budget and time are pretty limited at the moment.

We are a family of four - we have two little kids (a four year-old and a 1,5 year-old). We organize our activites according to their schedule and needs.

We eat/cook pretty simple. We try to avoid sweets, and diary products (due to food intolerancess). We can take care for your food too if you liked that.



Type of help.

Help with Eco project,
Cooking / shopping,
Babysitting / child care,


Our avalable dates are set now. We welcome a volunteer or two in July (for a week or two, maybe three - depending on the volunteer:) - from about 18th July till end July or early August). We will mostly be working on a timber garden shed (made in an old- fashioned way) and could use help with that - it requres some strength though and is therefore probably more suitied for a man.
We may also be working on the garden (permaculture and/or ecological garden), which is more relaxing. Feel free to ask for more information.

Languages spoken

English, Italian, Slovene


A volunteer could stay in a house (we have one spare room) or in a tent if you preffered that.
We have two bikes you can use for cycling. We live in the village, there's lovely nature here, Italy is 25 kms away, our capital Ljubljana is about 80 kms away from us. There's public transportation (bus) 5 minutes away on foot.
