  • Description

    Description

    We are a community for adults with learning dissability. We have a small garden, farm, and an art workshop. We base on the idea of Camphill communities- that means, residents and volunteers living and working together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    for sure you'll be able to learn some polish, but also the culture and traditions. We will gladly share our experience with biodynamic gardening and farming. If you'd be interested we have an art workshop :).

    In the summer we need help with our garden/ farm or both if you'd be willing to! Over the winter time there is still work on the farm, and with wood chopping. As for inside work, we aprriciate help with general maitenance, and house chores.

    So if you are open for adventure, why not come to Poland? We are small community with special needs adults, so we'd prefer if you have some camphill expierience, but if not an open mind and friendly spirit is also welcomed.

    For the summer and spring the help is needed in our small veg garden and with our fruit bushes (picking, land mowing in between, if you know how to make jam it's an extra skill! ;) ). We are also a proud owners of 3 cows and 3 calves and if you'd be interested in helping with feeding, milking,and cheese making we'd be more than happy!....that is the work that we do for the whole year round, and will happily share our knowledge about sustainable farming.

    We also have an art workshop, where we work with clay/paper/wood/textiles/candle wax.... If you are expierienced with running music/dancing/painting course or if you just want to try this lifestyle, where we all live and work and expierience all aspects of life together, come and join us :)

    (and my mum cooks amazingly good for those who work hard! ;) )

    p.s. You will be asked about your CV/work expierience and we usually ask for refferences, as we work with vulnerable adults and just need to go with the procedures :).
