    DEAR WORKAWAYERS! AT THE MOMENT OUR COTTAGE HOUSE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION. WE ARE NOT ABLE TO HOST VOLUNTEERS BEFORE APRIL-MAY 2019!

    We are Marju (34) and Raido (32), living in small old cottage house, located in Southern Estonia, 30 km of Latvian border. Far away from towns, among forest and fields. We love organic gardening, we have chickens, lambs and a goat. Our purpose is to live as natural and independent as possible, trying to go off grid.
    Marju has been working as a music teacher, youth worker and freelance musician more than 15 years. Raido is freelance craftsman and designer.
