    SEEKING A HELPER FOR BUILDING A MEANINGFUL PROJECT

    Looking for a man or a strong woman for help with work around an old farmhouse which is being reconstructed to serve as a mini retreat centre and animal sanctuary. It's mainly building and garden work.

    Preferably someone with interest in healthy cooking, herbs, nature and yin body-work.

    Starting April/May 2018 and staying perhaps for 1-2 months or the rest of the summer. Short stays also welcome.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a homeopath and women's mentor, so exchange and learning in the area of holistic medicine, foraging, aromatherapy and aura-soma is possible. I foster dogs.

    In the heart of Europe there lies an enchanted land – Czechia, it’s called, and I found the most magical corner of it.

    Nested under the Bohemia forest mountain range is found the old bohemian region called Posumavi. It’s here I’ve made my home. In the gentle wavy landscape, amongst fields, meadows and forests I reconstructed the sweetest old farmhouse on a hill. Surrounded by crooked old trees with moss and ivy growing everywhere the place is called Zahradka – little garden

    I’ve fallen in love with this land because it reminds me of the old czech world. Unlike most of this small country, the traditions, landscapes, culture and architecture hasn’t been completely destroyed by the previous regime and industrialisation era. Instead there’s a peaceful continuity to the ways of life, community and it shows in the mentality of local peoples.

    What I love most about this region is that the line of cultural heritage was never interrupted and you can find many reminders of the past. Many people still live in traditional ways, whether that’s farming or the tradition of going to the church and observing other traditional cultural customs/events

    While the 120 y.o. homestead is being gradually renovated, several interior spaces have been reconstructed to a sweet rustic country site standard. We are trying to keep everything ecological

    What to do there
    Bonfires, barbecue, mushroom foraging, you will hear deer barking and maybe even and owl in the night, and doves in the day.

    Help

    I'd appreciate help with cooking, cleaning, garden maintenance, wall renovation, old barn clearing, furniture renovation, and some basic carpentry would be a big plus. The jobs are really very flexible depending on what you feel like. 1 or 2 hrs a day is okay if you want to get your own food. If you'd like to have meals included this can be arranged in case 4-5 hrs of proffessional work is done ie. carpentry, masonry.
