    Description

    Hello naturelovers!

    I am Verena, living in a small paradise and I am having the honor to be the guardian over a 3200 qm land, close to the center of Graz (15 km).
    I live in a cosy wooden house, elevated in a small valley surrounded by hills and forests. Around are only a few houses, horses and fields full of wildlife. 2/3 of the land itself is very steep with a vegetable garden and an orchard with over 50 trees: apples, nuts, peaches, plums, grapes which are waiting for your help to harvest from June to end of October.
    I am living in an experiment how it is to live with and from nature, wild and free and responsible with mother earth. This simple and self determined lifestyle is making me very very happy, although it is challenging and bloody hard work! Specially for me, I need good people which are not shy to all kind of tasks and able to work also in hard physical work and independent, selfmotivated and joyful.

    I am always full inspiration and far away from the consumption mode and I like to collect and use recycling materials and create all kind of things on the place.
    At the moment I need help with the harvest and construction work, handy people are wanted!


    The diet is vegan and simple with a high amount of raw food, smoothies, salads, fruits, wild herbs from the own garden. I am living on rawfood, but provide also groceries for cooking, which I basically leave up to you. For breakfast everyone can take what they want and for noon I am preparing a big salad usually together with the people that are staying here. Also the kitchenwork is always shared with the workawayers additional to the work around the house.

    The life in nature is demanding and I really need to have practical, responsible, skillful people which are aware of what is needed to be done, are self-motivated and can work also independently. Even though the place is amazingly regenerating and provides a lot of energy, it is not a holiday place to chill out I (but in your free time of course you can chill :).
    I give freedom in the timing you want to work, just looking for balance in giving and receiving and that things are moving forward.

    I need people which have some of the following skills: Building with wood, carpentry, permaculture, general maintainance, scythe mowing, repair work, electricity.

    Styria is a very scenic country with mainly hills and mountains. The nearby city of Graz is easily reachable by bus. The bus station is 3 km away, and I can either bring you by car or you take the bicycle. The city of Graz is announced as worldheritage with a broad cultural program.
    3km from my place is a clean and beautiful small lake free accessible at any time.
