Hello, i am Giorgi from Georgia, me and my girlfriend Linda (She is form Germany) and our son Noah are spending the summer in my family's summer house close to the capital Tbilisi (45km). Since many years my family is growing natural Vegetables on the small farm we want to save this organic agriculture in this world full of genmodified food. The place is in a beautiful setting, next to the forest, close to Basaleti lake , 1000m above sea level and with amazing views of Kaukasus mountain region. We have lots of ideas and the place has a great potential. We want to plant more trees, grow more food, we would like to clean up the forest in the surrounding which is full of trash, build some stone oven, are interested in bio and self sustainable construction and maybe even create a place for children to be outside in the forest & nature to grow up in a natural way. buuut we are at the very beginning of this project :) We welcome any input, ideas, experience!

You will have the chance to learn with us together about farming and sustainable living. You have the chance to see a real authentique, georgian village and meet a lot of local people, the other family members are often visiting, preparing georgian dishes, we are making fire at night. Giorgi is a tour guide and know a lot about the hist country's history and places. And of course yo can try the most delicious natural products fresh from the garden.
so for the moment we need some help in gardening like watering, cultivating earth,planting trees... Helping with cleaning up the forest in the surrounding area close to our house because people used it as inofficial trash.
For the moment we have space for 2 people in the house which is very simple . The volunteers have space in the garden to camp or sleep in hammocks. We Have some hammocks available but no tents so far, so please bring your own if you prefer to sleep outside :). The facilities are very simple/ outdoor shower which is heated by the sun, and a dry toilet. We will provide breakfast, and we can prepare lunch & dinner together. So far we don't have enough vegetables and fruits to just use our own food but we try to just buy organic food and use as much from our garden as possible :)
From Tbilisi there is a bus and we can give you more details once you decide to come, another option is to hitchhike and if it will be possible sometimes we or family members are driving with the car and can take you. Or pick you up somewhere. In your freetime you can discover beautiful georgia, go hiking, climbing, swimming in the rivers, ( we already travelled a lot and have looots of advices :) )
