December 2020 - due to Covid restrictions, this volunteer season has finished. We hope to welcome helpers in June - September 2021 PERMACULTURE practitioners needed.
We need help in the yard with weeds and grass cutting! Care for old grapevines. Stonework. Water systems design and implementation.
Help us bring back to life, an old stone village house in the wine country of Montenegro. We need help with the vineyard, fruit and nut trees, house maintenance, and projects.
It has been sitting empty and I wish to turn the wine cellars and land into a place where I can invite friends and family to immerse themselves in Montenegro culture. This property is in a small village just outside Cetinje, the old Royal Capital with a different culture in Itself with historical buildings and an old-world feel. The village itself has only 6 houses along the one street. One neighbor is a maker of Honey Wine. Another is a Herbalist who sells at the local farmer's market, and others are working their land. They all are very welcoming and are happy to have foreigners discover their beautiful land.

Permaculture knowledge will be very helpful. Grass cutting in spring, tree pruning in fall, house and garden maintenance in summer. Painting, stonework, gardening. Knowledge of caring for wine grapes to bring back to life an old vineyard would be very useful. Being familiar with Montenegin or a similar Balkan language will be helpful.
