We are a family with two kids (3 and 5 years old). We live in a small village near town Vlašim. Our house has a big garden, we try to grow vegetables and other plants. We like the idea of permaculture. We also have hens, ducks and geese. The house needs a lot of renovation, so there's plenty of DIY construction opportunities as well. The house is brick and mortar, but our dream is to build a strawbale house sometime in the future, so perhaps we'd be exploring some smaller constructions to get the hang of that. First of all, we want the work to be fun and useful at the same time.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
You can learn some basics about how to take care of a garden, house and animals. We ourselves are just beginning with gardening, animal care and house DIY, so maybe we will all be learning at the same time. We want to have fun and learn at the same time. We used to travel ourselves before settling down so we can also exchange experiences. We also will be very happy to show you everything about our culture.

What else ...
There are a lot of possibilities for beautiful trips around. We can also lend you a bike. Our village is about 80 minutes by train from Prague, the capital of the Czech republic, and quite close (3km) to Vlašim, a small town with nice castle.
