  • Description

    Description

    Our adobe House is built from clay, straw, timber and stone and will serve in the near future as a meeting place and place for workshops for people from Poland and from abroad.
    There is lots of space on a huge forest glade, silence, trees, deers, does, herbs, mushrooms, berries.

    We do plan cultural and artistic exchange, ecological education as well as other activities.

    Staniszów is a village located in Lower Silesia nearby Jelenia Góra in the Giant Mountains in Poland. There is one important factor of its location - the border triangle of Czech Republic, Germany and Poland. The village Staniszów is a part of Valley of Palaces and Gardens (several dozens of castles, palaces, churches and residences with vast gardens on about 100km2).

    We run this house with only two of us (Rafal & Aga) and urgently need people eager to work with us. You can get more about us at glinianydom.org. We have a very friendly dog (labrador) who can go with you for a walk everywhere and there is no problem if you visit us with your dog (granted that it is not aggresive and loud).

    The work in the House consists of carpentry (partition walls), painting and plastering with clay, clean-up operations in homestead and in the garden.

    Generally there is a variety of activities while we always try to match between abilities and interestst of volunteers.

    The finishing works at the Adobe House require only limited expert knowledge of basic tools and building materials or just a good will and certain commitment. The natural building is just a simple way of construction work.
