    We are a humble homestead of craftsmen nestled in rural Latvia on the banks of the Salaca River. We met on the road some many moons ago and after years of traveling here and there we decided that it was time to dig our roots down. We have a big organic garden, goats, chickens, and ducks. We spend the green season outside harvesting wild plants and berries, gardening, and outdoor creative projects. In the winter we are full time craftsmen. Clare is a weaver, normally a carpet maker and Edgars is a potter and wood worker, focusing on music insturments and snowshoes. we are also crafters of all sorts including medicines, herbs, wine, moonshine, dairy products, preserves, natural Building, etc!
    the land we dwell on is part of a National park. The river , the Salaca, is mytical and full of peace. There is red sandstone clifffs and even a little cave. and all around is forest. Here the forest os full of plenty of riches like bilberries, raspberries, strawberries, lindon berries, mushrooms!, juniper, and plenty of other green allies.
    we love to enjoy life and celebrate as much as we can (especially with a bottle of homemade blueberry wine or apple cider:) we often play music and go on adventures or simply make them at the home.

    work depends on what time of the year. but usually it could be some garden work, in the fruit orchard, with the goats, or building something (like an outdoor pizza oven!)

    We have hosted volunteers for six years with great success. we are not far from Riga the capital so it is pretty easy to get here. We are located a stone throw away from Estonia so you can also explore that wonderful Baltic country.
