    Description

    This farm is a very small. We have flock of 45 sheep, bees and the garden. We are produsing food mostly for ourself. We also run the project ecocamp, but we have no time for it. It is free cost space to camp for all sorts of travelers.
    Vojtech is the boss of the farm. and he is interest in organic and permaculture way of life. Many friend are around, mostly english speaking, special people. Jana (me) is the gardener. Vojta have two children, Hedvika and Kašpar. (5and7years) and me, I have Gaia, who is 9. We have many knowledge and expirience to give. Also possibility of staying in the almost virgin nature and beatiful landskape. I´m working on the farm like a volunteer and I´m getting expirienced with natural healing, herbs and finding ways how to live without money, which like a single mother I really need to know. If there will be any interest from workawayer, I will prefer to help me with the garden, if they will be happy about that. On the farm there is just Vojta living all the time. Me and my daugheter is livinig in the trailer in orchard near by.

    Valeč town itself gives reason to visit the area: Baroque chateau, Matyáš Braun's sculptures, cafe Pradelna offering well draft beer, post-office and basic shop in the village. The farm is all organic and quite simple or modest. Acc: equipped maringotka, compost toilet, summer kitchen... Mongolian yourt works as a livingroom, office, winter kitchen and so on for WWOOFers, Workawayers, other volunteers or whoever else. We have also ordinary wc, shower with hot water and washing machine in the house :-)
