    Help

    The volunteers are expected to contribute to the everyday work with 5 hours a day, 5 days a week but we can agree for some days off to visit the country. We are very flexible in the work because the priority is to live in peace with the environment and people.

    Particular skills are appreciated but not necessary. The willingness to do the best, as if the farm is its own it is enough. We have also a rented field to plant forage, so depending of the period, you can be requested to help in this task.

    Depending on the period, you may be asked to graze the sheep and spend the night with them in the field.
