Our dream has come true - in June we moved from Prague to a country house in the charming region of the Jizera mountains just 2 km from the Polish border. It's me, my boyfriend, 9 year old daughter and 2 lovely dogs. We love it here and are now renovating the house and getting ready for winter - that's why we need your help :-)
Help in the house
My boyfriend is a passionate gardener, so you can join him in our garden and learn about no dig gardening and permaculture. He is also a yoga teacher so we can do yoga together. I like to dance, meditate and do contact improvisation and am happy to share those activities with you. The region is charming, with mountains around, where you can go hiking, biking, have a swim in the pond just 10 minutes away or visit a nearby spa.
The main help we need right now is taking down the plaster from the walls, both inside and outside, scratching off the old paint from the walls, and painting. Occasionally, we might need a little help with the dogs, cleaning, cooking…

Depending on the number of workawayers, you will have your own room in the attic, or share it with one other workawayer. Or, you can stay in a tent if you like (provided by us). The house is about 100 years old and we've only just moved in recently, so please don't expect luxury :-) However, you can look forward to a cosy room and three shared vegetarian meals a day.
To get to our village, you can take the bus or the train. We don’t have a car.
