1. CONSTRUCTION TEAM:
Carpentry /wood work/ & work with other natural materials (NEEDED NOW!) - 3-4 people
Tasks: constructing the rooms in the roof (placing wooden floor, doors, making furniture, finishing mud plasters, opening a window on the roof, putting the tiles in the bathroom...), continuing summer kitchen, making shelves for the big kitchen, storage and shed, making compost toilet no.3, lake & grey water system, making paths around the garden..
Note: We are searching for you guys who are experienced in work with wood and natural materials, and/or you guys with practical mind, wishing to learn about it while helping out. For strong people! :) Experienced use of working tools and machines is also appreciated.
2. PART TIME KIDS - PART TIME GARDENING
KIDS - playing!…And changing diapers and clothes after jumping into the mud, helping out with mastering the eating skills, putting them down for the naps. We call out for people who have the experience with kids, and would love to take care of two little boys, that are let free to explore the world in their own ways, with guidance when needed. So it would be helpful to have the trust in kids capacities and patience with their learning processes :)
GARDENING - Planting, weeding, cutting grass

*** additional task for all: Housekeeping
Tasks: cleaning the communal spaces that we all use.
Note: We have the "Housekeeping tasks system", that helps us share all the housekeeping tasks among everyone present
Preferred stay for all the volunteers is at least 1 month, as it takes time to meet the kids, the people and the project and get familiar with the work. In some cases we can take in the volunteers that can stay 2-3 weeks.

Accommodation April - October:
Accommodation is in the tents, in the peaceful, private-land camping area, on the hills of Fruska gora Mountain, just next to the national park. We have 2 compost toilets, as well as outside showers outside.
We love eating together!
All participants are welcomed to eat together with us for all meals.
Food is diverse, colourful, tasty & plant-based ( vegan ), and is made by each person who shares Housekeeping tasks, for everyone who is present.
The evening hours (and Sundays) are usually kept for the Open Space Activities. These are all the activities that anyone present wishes to share with 1 or more people. The topics are broad: from watching and discussing good movies, walkings in the woods, group cookings, dancing, juggling, yoga, meditations, silent hours/days...
Everyone is welcomed to organise an activity as well as to participate or not participate in the given ones.
While organizers are taking care of the food and accommodation, work planning, free activities, and a good atmosphere, volunteers are to cover their travel costs, and pocket money.
