    My name is Sylvia. I live in a village 20 km away from Wroclaw, with my husband and two children, ages 11 and 16. The children have been homeschooled for 4 years now. For five years I have been running the 'Gaya' mini-zoo. I organise workshops and host preschool groups to show children the simple and beautiful world of nature. I keep domestic animals and pets (goats, a donkey, cats, dogs, a rabbit and little monkeys). I also take care of orphaned wild animals, like foxes, deer or squirrels. We raise them and help them return to their home, the woods.

    The guests will benefit by acquiring experience with animal care, learning to milk goats and produce goat cheese.
    There will be plenty of opportunities to rest, relax and explore nature as we live in a beautiful place surrounded by trees, away from the big city, and close to the woods (500 m).
    We - and especially the children - will be happy to teach you about the Polish language and customs. There will also be a possibility to learn to ride a motorbike.

  • Arbeit


    Talk to us in English and help us learn this language. I can communicate easily and my children (11 and 16 years old) are fast learners. Help us with small jobs with animals, like feeding very small and friendly monkeys, holding goat kids and accustoming them to human touch. No manure hauling :) Small domestic jobs, like starting the dishwasher or vacuuming. We will be very happy if you share your cooking skills with us.
