Erdevik is a small village near Croatian and Bosnian border, surrounded by National park Fruska Gora and two lovely lakes.
If you like walking, exploring woods and forest, learning new skills and just being in this small, friendly and peaceful village and you are not afraid of the cooking and helping around the house and garden then this is your place.
If you have any ideas and would like to try them we will support you as much as we can. You can learn to paint, printmaking, lino cutting, making shelving, gardening and painting and decorating.
In the past volunteers stayed from one week to one months. Many came back as we become very good friends.
We value mutual respect for each other and also value your respect for our home and the way we live. If you have a flag from your country bring it and leave it here please.
Take health + travel INSURANCE as we can not accept any responsibility for any loss or injury.
