  • Description


    SPINGTIME! if you feel the call to help out getting the baby plants growing, learning how to prepare the peds, planting, and processing wild herbs

    Joel built this place 30 years ago and it grew into a little wild permaculture garden paradise. Every saturday he goes to the market to sell and he is a massagist too. I (florian) am staying in the farm on and off for now, traveling to other places too and managing the workaway, because Joel is not too much into internet stuff but its great way to share the experience, food and tranquilness around in the place and get some help ..... :)

    Its located near Zahling, close to the Hungarian border, about an hour from Graz and two hours from Vienna

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We travelled Brazil and much more countries, Joel travelled India, we like to exchange spiritually and you learn a lot about farming and permaculture. The styrian culture where we are on the market brings festivities and home music and culture every Saturday and we are connected with local alternative movements and like to make excursions to singing circles, plant markets and alike to have a balance from the work here.
