    In summer: You can help us: watering the gardens, keep stables and area clean, helping with walking next to the horses, feeding horses and animals ect... cooking for our family(we are 2 ) those are the main things that need to be done in Summer.
    If you like nature and animals this is the place to be! In spring autumn and winter: there are forest tasks (cleaning forest, pruning, cutting dead trees, bush cutting,collecting -cutting wood, ect) ...weeding, seeding, painting, cleaning, helping feeding the horses, brushing horses, planting, ect...

    We look for people who like to work outdoors, we can teach you how to maintain the land also working with machines if you want .You can help us clean the forest to prepare against forest fires.
    We can teach you natural medicine and treatments for animals and humans and how to communicate and understand horses.
