we live in a old village of ten houses in karst area of slovenia, 15 km from the coast. we try to live a self sustainable life with respect to nature. we bougt this old stone homestead 1,5 years ago and we have big enthisiasm in bringing new life to it, using natural materials and building methods. we have 5 hectares of land and we are building fences so our animals can do some grass cutting for us. Sara is a now a full time mother of 3 years old Tala and 3 months old Jadran, otherwise she is a joga and dance teacher. Mitja is sport teacher who doesnt do sports, but likes to be in nature, work with horses, build natural shelters and work with children. we are discovering ways how to live and arrange our house to not harm the environment, but to support it. our greywater from the hose goes to watering trees, we use a compost toilet, dont put poison to our plants and other simmilar things...we like to share our knowledge with you new friends!
SPECIAL THING: we Will go for a travel in january and february 2020 so we are looking for honest and responsible vounteers who will take care of our home while we are gone. your tasks Will not be too hard, mainly taking care of the house, animals and doing some work. we would be in touch by email or phone for things that need comunnication. for us would be perfect if we get someone, or a couple, or a familly who would come around 1.1. to show the around and stay for 5 to 7 weeks, but it is also possible for less time and we Will connect dates... thank you!

we have two small children and we have many things to do on our land, with our animals (6 sheeps, two donkeys and a pony), on our ecological garden, and with rebuilding our home. in next month our main focus is to build a open wooden stall for animals before real winter comes, so we need a person or two who likes to move wood around and help with this...also we need a person who would enjoy spending time with our tala, 3 year old girl, who doesnt go to kindergarden or help Sara around with the house work. We are starting a nature kindergarden so volunteers are wellcome to work with children in nature.
