We are an openminded organic farm, growing flowers and herbs during the season. We are looking for helping hands in renovating a barn : first floor, insulation is done and we will need to plaster and paint. The second floor will turn in a nice and cozy dormitory and for this we still need to insulate the roof and built it until it’s nice enough to sleep inside! Windows will also have to be in there.
We are located in Switzerland. We will be together in this renovating project and life in the house, we also have cows, 17 of them! You will get a wonderful surrounding and an inspiring, peaceful, healing place with very good and healthy food and a nice private room. So if You feel inspired, please have a look on our website and contact us. We are looking forward to your company!
Hope to hear from you soon! Greetings Martin

We live in a very beautiful place with a view of the Alps. Secluded, yet central. By public transport you have quickly reached Basel, Lucerne, Bern or Zurich. Friendship and honesty are important to us. We always have interesting people coming to visit us. We are interested in different spiritual directions. We eat vegetarian food. We eat dairy (less and less) but no eggs. We have regular singing or drum evenings on our farm. There is everywhere around beautiful viewpoints/hiking routes.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
In the growing season we are mainly engaged in producing herbs. This goes from sewing to harvest. We have over 30 different herbs that we grow professionally. The work with the herbs, in beautiful surroundings is medicine for the soul. We also have cows on the farm. During the growing season, the cows are always on pasture and need to be moved from a field to another. In winter they are also in the stable. Part of the work is the hay harvest. Mainly accomplished by machine.
In winter time, when the herbal season is over, we will need help with renovations (barn and attic). We will need both motivated-to-learn people and more advanced skilled people in eco building or general renovation to lead or help to lead the project. Cleaning, isolating, floor making, painting, etc, the barn will have to turn in a beautiful seminar/events room! Looking forward to build a nice team together.
This will be done between December and March 2019.
You will have your one private, freshly renovated room.
