Hello there and thank you for visiting our profile!
Our project is a bio-organic sustainable eco-friendly fruit forest and permaculture garden near a small village in the west part of Slovakia, surrounded by beautiful nature, forests, and plenty of wild animals.
We are a young Slovakian mostly vegetarian family of 4 - Viky, Juraj, and our 2 sons - Jurko and Zorik. There is also a dog Borka and few cats living with us. We are mainly plant-based eaters, eco lovers, and permaculture enthusiasts. We love meeting new people, having fun, singing and playing music. Together we are creating a beautiful eco garden with more than 500 fruit trees and 2 ponds on our 4 ha land. On the side of our large property, we are hosting dark-stay retreats in 2 individual cob houses. We try to be as Eco friendly as possible ..... Collecting and harvesting our own rain water; using solar energy for hot water and growing most of our own vegetables and fruits. We'll teach you as much as you wish to learn and ask that volunteers embrace our eco friendly resources.There is always a lot to do, many projects to start and many to finish, therefore we would love to welcome any pair of helping hands.
We enjoy hosting volunteers. We see it as a win/win on both sides. You help us with our projects which would take too long to complete. We are looking for happy, and self-driven individuals who would like to help us to make our dream of the sustainable eco-community come true.

Help around the house
We like sharing our knowledge about permaculture so we believe you can borrow a leaf from us...:) Loads to learn about sustainable living, organic farming, cob building, fruit drying, herbs, natural cosmetics, community food gardens, lots of singing and playing in the house. Enjoy your time while learning a lot about this kind of happy lifestyle, learn about Slovakian traditions and lifestyle.
The main help would be cultivating the land and taking care of it in the permaculture manners. Helping with planting the vegetable garden, replanting, mulching, taking care of the fruit trees, cultivating the ponds.
Any kind of sustainable eco-building from natural materials- building a garage, a new greenhouse, and repairing the old one, building a community guest house.
We would also like to build a sauna, a small art studio, and a jam session music room.
Any kind of woodwork, carpentry, building or gardening, art, and craft skills are more than appreciated.
We would also appreciate someone who loves to spend time around kids and likes to share and teach any creative or language skills.
This host offers a language exchange
We can teach you Slovakian :)
The accommodation we can provide for now is rather in our house, on the couch next to a cozy fireplace during the colder season, or a bed in the winter garden in the summer. You can also camp in the garden in the summer season if you prefer to stay connected to nature.
Food is provided every day based on your preferences - we are mainly raw food, plant-based vegans, and smoothie lovers so if you enjoy this kind of eating this place will be your heaven.
There are beautiful walks into the woods and hills surrounding the farm. If you come in your own car you can spend endless time exploring this beautiful part of our little country. Many possibilities for hiking, rock climbing, swimming in the ponds and enjoying nature.
