  • Description

    Description

    We are family of four, ( two teenagers boys 17 and 15 who like playing football and fishing and playing games , but they are in boarding school during the week...) we have a small garden and an established art residency. We are interested in art, computer games, land art, painting, mosaic making, sculpture, photography, gardening, cooking, eco art, building...

    In the past we hosted volunteers and artists from all around the world. They helped us but also they worked with other villagers and helped elderly and needy people.

    Please read carefully to avoid misunderstandings.

    For all volunteers max of stay is 2 weeks

    What kind of helper we would like is

    - to be practical, show self initiative, willing, helpful, hard working with a good sense of humour. Male or females, people willing to learn, willing to participate in a local community, willing to share their skills.


    Please note that we all cook together and we appreciate help with the cooking, washing-up and cleaning. We provide some food but anything else or special requirements you will need, please provide it for yourselves from a local shop.


    We have wireless internet.

    Erdevik is a small village near Croatian and Bosnian border, surrounded by National park Fruska Gora and two lovely lakes.

    If you like walking, exploring woods and forest, learning new skills and just being in this small, friendly and peaceful village and you are not afraid of the cooking and helping around the house and garden then this is your place.

    If you have any ideas and would like to try them we will support you as much as we can. You can learn to paint, printmaking, lino cutting, making shelving, gardening and painting and decorating.

    In the past volunteers stayed from one week to one months. Many came back as we become very good friends.

    We value mutual respect for each other and also value your respect for our home and the way we live. If you have a flag from your country bring it and leave it here please.



    IMPORTANT

    Take health + travel INSURANCE as we can not accept any responsibility for any loss or injury.
