  • Description

    Description

    We are a multicultural Christian family who dare to begin a new life at the country side.

    We pray before meal and go to Catholic or Evangelical God's services. We try to live Christian belief "Love your neighbour and bless your enemies", even when it's difficult. And we like to talk about God. :)

    We are convinced, that people will be happy, and the biggest problems in the world will be solved, when the most of human kind will be living rural in their own homes and eat their own grown food. And -of course- have an internet connection, too. ;)

    We need a help to repair our new old wooden house (carpenter skills).

    Instead of bodybuilding in fitness centre, You can workout by helping us to plenish the garden and to build stone walls for terraces (muscle power skills). :)

    We would like to build an organic garden, but don't have much clue about it. It would be great help if You have experience with permaculture (gardening skills).

    You can help us to upgrade our website from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 4 (high Joomla skills).

    If you don't posses these skills/superpowers, don't worry, there are still enough possibilities for other little help from friends, like painting the walls, etc. :)

    You can enjoy huge (at least 100km²) deciduous forest (straight away from house) over the little hills for long walks in peace and harmony with the nature & it's Creator.

    There are four beautiful rivers nearby (Kupa, Korana, Dobra, Mrežnica), perfect for swimming and for bike tours.

    You can visit Karlovac (15km away) and Zagreb (70km away). We'll be glad to guide You, if we have time. We could make trips together to the mountains in Gorski Kotar (60 km away). Perhaps also to Adriatic coast or to famous Plitvice lakes (both ca. 110 km away).
