    Sziasztok! We are Csongi (34) and Ágota (26), a Hungarian couple living on the countryside of South-Eastern Hungary - our farm is located 8 kms away from Szarvas, 5 km away from Békésszentandrás. The area is peaceful and quiet, we moved here to live closer with Mother Earth, following the natural rhythm of life.

    Csongi is a super chef and a furnace-builder, can work with adobe and wood, and fix things around the household.
    Ágota has artistic abilities (sewing, painting and playing music), has knowledge about wild herbs and mindfulness practices.

    Both of us admire upcycling.

    Volunteers are welcome for November 2020!

    We can provide you vegetarian and vegan dishes if you request, we occasionally eat meat.

    We'd like to host max. 2 volunteers at a time (families still can come).

    In Szarvas there are some cute parks, a theater ON the river and sometimes concerts.
