    Description

    Hi, I'm Jerzy and I've just started to realize my dream - a small organic farm.
    I live with my parents in central part of Poland, where my farm is located. I speak English, French and I learn Spanish. My parents speak French, my mother also knows a bit of English. We live in a our family house with a big garden, and some farm buildings. My project is to make this place living its own life. For now main small projects are: organic, no-dig, permacultural market garden, polytunnels, apiary and some other activities. We are located close to Poznań (well comunicated) and other nice places to visit. There are a lot of small roads which are nice for cycling or running and in the summer few beautiful lakes for swimming.

    I don't require a lot of skills and experience from you. The most important thing is your positive character and a will to help me on the farm a little bit.
    Spring: I have a lot of work in the garden, like preparing fields, planting veggies and some work with the bees like colecting honey.
    Summer: I harvest tomatoes, sweet corn etc., there's also a need of helpful hands with transformating tomatoes into passata and I have to prepare the bees for winter. I also go to the market to sell my products.
    Autumn: I work on restoration of our buildings and my old car. I take care of the trees by cutting the unnecessary branches and I prepare the wood for winter.
    Winter: I continue to take care of the trees and I start already to prepare a farm for a new season.
    There's a lot of things to do, and I'll gladly get some help from you in all those activities!

    Accommodation

    You will live with our family at home but you will have your own room. We've got just one bathroom, so you'd need to share it with us. My mom cooks for the entire family and you, sometimes she might need your help in the kitchen or to set the table.
