    We deal with Japanese koi and garden pond equipment and have a recycled 480 m2 greenhouse with six koi ponds as a "tropical Koi Garden".

    Practical workawayers with gardening and building experience are most appreciated. Work with natural stone, Japanese and stone gardens, general gardening,, wood, plumbing, electrical, mechanic, etc.

    We love recycling., stone work, gardening and ecological farming in small scale.

    Volunteers will not help with anything related to selling products and they will only help with our greenhouse, private garden and home.
