We are a small vegan family, that lives in beautiful nature of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Lady of the house is a full time mum, (raw)vegan chef and blogger, published book author and a social worker, father is vegan chef, an excellent carpenter, a great handyman, girl of the house is the happiness of the home...
We practice natural parenting and minimalist lifestyle. We went off grid to get back to our NATURE, and we are succeeding so far. Our biggest wish is to show to people how easy it is to leave the big cities and get back to nature. How happy and blessed we can be with owning very little.
We do not use any chemical products, we make all by ourselves.
Main goal and long term plan is to become 100% self efficient and sustainable. Idea with volunteers is great for us because we are getting help we need, and we are offering them to see and live in another perspective of life.
We have a dog and cats, and a few chickens.
We have a young orchard and plenty of fruit trees around our estate and on it.
We have solar shower, forest and dry toilet.
We have a big land where we practice permaculture and life according to nature. We are very open to any creative ideas and sharing experience with our volunteers. We are open to learning new things that you have to offer.
Come stay with us to get some of our life passion and love we love to spread. At our place you can enjoy peace and quiet that you can only experience in intact nature. Wake up with birds go to sleep with sound of different animals...
We found that we function best with long term volunteers, that come and stay with us at least, 2 weeks. We all get to know each other very well and become family, like we basically are(human family). We will not be accepting volunteers staying less than 15 days.
Our homestead is alcohol and smoke free zone.
Babysitting / child care
Help with Eco project
Help with Computers / internet
At our place you could learn different languages, since we are fluent in english, swedish, bosnian.
You can learn a lot about natural lifestyle , natural parenting, raw(vegan) food (mother is a raw food chef and studying to become holistic doctor and father is a vegan chef), meditation, detox, natural hygiene, holistic lifestyle, permaculture, building wooden cottages, becoming self-sustainable, traveling, writing books etc...
UPDATE FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2019:
We always need a female volunteer that will spend time with our five year old girl. We are homeschooling/unschooling, so you would spend time with her teaching her different things or just playing with her.
Individuals that are interested in learning or already have knowledge in permaculture, since there is plenty of work in the garden and orchard.
We are reconstructing a loft into living space, so if you have any experience in building or want to learn, you are welcome to come help.
We have a our daughters Pomeranian puppy, and soon will be getting another dog, so we need someone who is willing to train them obedience.
Then we Need volunteers that have knowledge in social media marketing, taking care of our social media accounts.
After the first season(summer, fall) of living like this and having over more than 50 volunteers we now have an idea what kind of persons will fit in with us.
If you are on this trip because you are tired of living in a city, or traditional lifestyle. If you are tired of your routine, and you think that is not everything there is to this life. - you will love it staying with us
If you love ALL animals, not just your pets. That means that you do not eat animals, or that you decided you want to give it a try to not eat animals or any animal products. If you decided that, you must be aware that changing a diet brings detox, both physical and psychical. (We are here for you to help you with that, because we do that for other people who start with plant based diet, we give them help)- you will love it staying with us
If you love our planet, our Mother Earth and do not want to do her harm. If you want to become more aware of the things that you are using for your hygiene and learn how and what to use to do her no harm. If you are aware or becoming aware about the pollution that we are doing to our planet with modern lifestyle and want to learn how not to be part of the problem, though part of the solution - you will love it with us
If you can work hard if and when needed, like you live here, and like we are your family. If you can give your heart and soul to the work being done here, and devote yourself to the projects we are up to. - you will love it here.
If you have a high sense of responsibility and are or trying to take initiative in things - you will love it here
If you love children, and all their phases, and if you are ready to deal with the inner child that lives inside you, since that is what will for sure happen, when hanging out with out daughter. Her way of being, triggers everything hidden inside you from the period you were her age.
If you are ready to become a better person, for yourself, for the animals and for our planet - you will love it here
IF you want to grow as a person, get to know yourself, and heal yourself - you will love it here
When you read this, think if this is really you, and then continue reading. If you doubt in anything written, please do not waste ours or yours time... We really want to have people staying with us who are on the same path as we are... There is already so many other paths...
Usually We found that we function best with long term volunteers, that come and stay with us at least, 3 weeks. We all get to know each other very well and become family, like we basically are(human family). We will not be accepting volunteers staying less than three weeks.
Most of the things that we need help with are:
Gardening, building, cleaning, artwork, architecture, helping out with our five year old. We travel a lot pga our workshops that we host all over Europe, sometimes you will need to stay alone at our homestead and take care of it while we are away. In those months, it is best for a couple or family to be here.
