  • Description


    Hi Folks, We are a Polish family who decided to live a good life in the countryside. Good doesn't not mean easy or idylic, it's more of the mindfulness, simplicity, awareness, it's about slow but meaningful life.

    We bought a 100 -year - old farmhouse and decided to make it our place. We chose as priorities being respectful to our planet, living close to nature, trying to be as sustainable as possible. Our farm is situated in the Landscape Park "The Bóbr River Valley" in the south west of Poland.

    The farmhouse is surrounded by woods, part of it is our own land. The place is really old, it needs renovation so we work all year long to restore its beauty. We plan to make it a place for slow life lovers.

    We plan to create an asylum for those who care about our planet and choose mindfulness and simplicity instead of money making. The place is filled with beauty, yet it requires plenty of work: gardening starting from the scratch, woodwork, and loads of odd jobs connected with renovation.

    We hope to make it a place where you can feel the real unity with the present and the past, the harmony with nature and yourself. We need your helping hands to make it real. Our family is willing to recieve guests as we have 3 kids, one of them we homeschool, they love being surrounded by people from all over the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can be part of our family and witness all that love brings to everyday life. Sometimes it's crazy and wild, sometimes peaceful and deeply melancholic but it's always authentic and real. It's slow life that sometimes speeds up, it's slow food that sometimes turns into celebration, it's the volcanoes of energy of our kids, it's the artistic soul of our house. These are your lessons...

    What kind of help will we need? Well, we renovate the house ourselves with the minimum amount of money being spent. At the same time we live there with 3 kids and you can imagine how hard it might be.

    Any help would be appreciated - there's plenty of gardening (actually we just have to make the garden from the very beginning), building the fence from the stones, carpentary work, painting and the walls, cleaning up the attic, renovating and decoraating the old furniture, playing with our kids :) You'll find lots of things to do.

    Also this September we started homeschooling our daughter so we would be more than happy to meet workawayers who can contribute to this project.

    If you decide to come to our farm to volunteer, you'll find nature that inspires and makes you feel you are in the right place, in the right moment. Next to the house there's a wonderful valley with 100-year-old trees of 40 species, it was created by the dutches who lived in the nearby palace, then if you take a bike you can see a beatiful lake, the hills, and the snowy peaks of Karkonosze Mountains, there is also the river Bóbr, a wild one, a magical one.

    The village is very old , almost every house has its hundred -year -old history. Also the whole area where we live is full of interesting old castles and palaces, there are some beautiful lakes, there a village where only artists live, there are wonderful mountains about 30 km away and an interesting, one of the most beautiful cities in Poland Wrocaław (about 100 km away).
