Travellers may be inspired by our self-sufficiency style of life and may like to learn about gardening, wild edible plants, permaculture etc. We are looking forward to have many interesting chats about everything between micro-life in the soil to global issues, dreams, hopes and fears for the future on this planet and many good laughs.
At the moment we are looking for someone who would like to stay for at least WHOLE SEPTEMBER. My husband will be operated in his hip so we need a person who can do the daily work while I am travelling for two weeks in the end of the month. The first part of the month you would work at my side and learn everything.
Daily tasks will be taking care of 11 hens, helping out in harvesting and conserving veggies (and, kitchen work (cooking, cleaning), watering and other garden work.
You will stay in our newly renovated guest house with your own kitchen and ecological toilet. (see photo)
