Linda has just started to build her own Hobbit House, If You like Ecological buildings, here is the right place.
We have a big garden with potatoes, salad, fruits and much more( in summer). Guests will have their own room (Winter) or in Summer in our hay hotel where you can sleep with your sleeping bag. One of the barns will transform in a training centre. So you see a lot of things to do, but we don't forget to celebrate, with our own "house-wine" from fruits and grapes. We had already Volunteers from : Brazil, Venezuela, USA, France, Denmark, Romania, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Russia, Austria, Swiss and England. So you are also very welcome!

In Latvia it is very common to buy clothes from a second hand shop. We have a lot of them. Very cheap and very good quality. Close to 100% of our Volunteer use them to buy stuff. So you have not to bring everything with you.
