    We need help in our projects and day to day household work.
    We are looking for industrious and creative people, keen on sustainability, hospitality, and life in the nature. We are looking for help for our projects in 2019 from March, longer stay- several months, as well as short stay- couple of weeks, with main objective organic garden, eco building etc.

    We plan big organic garden, with permaculture principles, so there is a lot of land preparation to be done, organic material, straw, manure... then planting... weeding and also harvesting!

    We collect edible herbs, for superb salads for our guests and for making nice produce like pesto etc.
    Medicinal herbs for teas and tinctures.
    A lot to be learnt there!

    We plan to make micro huts for accomodation this year. These are made from wood mostly. Some knowledge of carpentry is wellcome. We always have some mud and straw work in eco building, repairing old buildings.

    Art skills are also wellcome, as we are in need for decoration, painting walls, wood carving etc.

    There is always need for preparing wood for fire, choping, stacking etc.
