    Description

    ok. Things have changed since we signed with Workaways several years ago.
    Our children are now grown up adults and some left home. Our organic garden become a smaller garden and it is now just a little organic garden... which require a little bit of help ....
    Our artist residency is still live and going but we are now concentrating on artist developing practice.
    We encourage older artists without direction who studies art long time ago neglected and now would like to come back to do it again but need help . We provide consultancy development of artistic practice to for the artists .



    In the past we hosted volunteers and artists from all around the world.


    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.

    We will provide you with an accommodation from september 2019. the food will be provided for the volunteers who work 5 hours a day .
