  • Description

    Description

    We are an international couple living on the outskirts of Fruška Gora national park, on the slopes of Fruška Gora mountain, some 25 km from Novi Sad. We've been learning about gardening, growing crops, renovating, building, maintaining the property etc. We prefer non-smokers.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are happy to share what we know about gardening, nature, edible plants and mushrooms in the forest, as well as construction (wood, concrete, bricks - we've got a little bit of everything going on). We've lived in several countries, speak several languages, and enjoy reading books and watching movies.

    Help

    What we need help with generally depends on the season: gardening (weeding, watering, pruning, digging etc), fruit picking, chopping firewood, maintaining the yard (sweeping, mowing the grass and so on), and various repair & construction projects on the property. Cooking is also welcome, if you're into it. There is significantly less work in winter, but guests are welcome throughout the year.
    Keep in mind, however, that this is a farm, and all the work involved is manual labor. You don't need to be especially strong or fit, but you should at least be familiar with the concept of working outside and getting your hands dirty.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You get a separate room all to yourself. It goes without saying that we provide all the food.

    The forest starts about 15 minutes from our house, so hiking is an obvious option (the national park is about 80 km long and mostly covered by forest). We've got two bicycles and the area is popular with cyclists, so you can also explore it on two wheels. We have a lot of books (in English) and you are welcome to help yourself to our library. The village is small (population 200, mostly elderly), there are no large urban centers in the vicinity and there is no public transport.
